Standard Register Hosting Patient Safety Summit

Quest 2011 features Dr. Peter Pronovost as keynote speaker

DAYTON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Next week, Standard Register (NYSE:SR) Healthcare will host its first healthcare summit, Quest 2011. The invitation-only event, which will be held March 23-24 at the Baltimore Hyatt Regency in Baltimore, Maryland, will focus on “Fostering a Culture of Patient Safety: Compliance vs. Engagement.”

Dr. Peter J. Pronovost, one of healthcare’s most influential advocates for patient safety, will be the keynote speaker and lead an interactive session in which other thought leaders and innovators in patient safety will share ideas and successes for creating more patient-centric environments and safer care.

“Patient safety is one of the most pressing issues facing the healthcare industry today. The World Health Organization estimates that in developed countries as many as one in 10 patients is harmed while receiving hospital care,” said Brad Cates, president for Standard Register Healthcare. “The goal of Quest 2011 is to facilitate thought leader collaboration and create a path to further advances in patient safety.”

Pronovost is medical director of the Quality and Safety Research Group at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. He is best known for having led the Michigan Keystone project which uses checklists and other interventions to measurably reduce catheter-associated bloodstream infections in ICUs . For this work and more, he received a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship and Time Magazine named him as one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Quest 2011 is also bringing together a distinguished group of panelists -- doctors, nurses, administrators and educators from across the country -- who will discuss the challenges of creating a culture that fosters patient safety and what they’re doing to prepare for the future.

Standard Register Healthcare is hosting Quest 2011 in collaboration with Patient Safety and Quality Healthcare magazine, which is the exclusive media sponsor for the event.
