Blue Patient Safety Toolkit
The Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association (BCBSA) has launched the Blue Patient Safety Toolkit to provide tools, resources, and industry best practices that may be used by providers to assist with improving safety. The Toolkit focuses on four critical areas. Click on each module to learn more!
In addition to the toolkit, the Blue Surgical Safety Checklist was designed to proactively enforce the importance of patient safety. It was designed by the World Health Organization (WHO) and consists of 19 steps designed to improve communication and consistancy of care within surgical teams and reduce avoidable complications.
