<h2>TrueProfile.io Supports World Patient Safety Day</h2> <p>TrueProfile.io supports the commemoration of World Patient Safety Day, spearheaded by the World Health Organization (WHO). World Patient Safety Day is celebrated every year on September 17th, together with WHO Member States. This year’s theme revolves around prioritizing health workers’ safety, and this includes having healthcare professionals with verified credentials.</p> <h2>What is patient safety?</h2> <p>According to the <a href="https://www.who.int/patientsafety/en/#:~:text=On%2017%20September%202020%2C%20the,a%20prerequisite%20to%20patient%20safety." target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">WHO</a>, “patient safety is the absence of preventable harm to a patient during the process of health care and reduction of risk of unnecessary harm associated with health care to an acceptable minimum.” A lot of factors play a part in making sure that a patient is safe during health care. These include:</p> <ul><li>Clear policies</li><li>Organizational leadership capacity</li><li>Data to drive safety improvements</li><li>Skilled health care professionals </li><li>Effective involvement of patients in their care</li></ul> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large is-style-default"><img loading="lazy" width="1000" height="439" src="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/shutterstock_649070965-1.jpg" alt="Getting Verified Credentials Promotes Your Patients’ Safety" class="wp-image-10669" title="Getting Verified Credentials Promotes Your Patients’ Safety" srcset="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/shutterstock_649070965-1.jpg 1000w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/shutterstock_649070965-1-300x132.jpg 300w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/shutterstock_649070965-1-768x337.jpg 768w" sizes="(max-width: 1000px) 100vw, 1000px" /></figure> <h2>How does TrueProfile.io contribute to patient safety?</h2> <p>As patient safety is inherent in skilled healthcare professionals , the role of TrueProfile.io is of utmost importance.
