• In 2015, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) awarded Wexner Medical Center with a competitive grant for nearly $4 million to implement the Institute for the Development of Environments Aligned for Patient Safety (IDEA4PS) over four years.
  • Susan Moffatt-Bruce, MD, PhD, MBA, Executive Director of University Hospital at Ohio State Wexner Medical Center serves as Principal Investigator and Ann McAlearney, ScD and Tim Huerta, PhD serve as program directors.
  • IDEA4PS seeks to use systems approaches to bring together multidisciplinary teams to generate new ways of looking at information and data aimed at improving patient safety.
  • Twenty-three investigators from the medical center and beyond are involved in the work of the grant, proving how the university is truly working together for patient safety.
