Military Health System

About the Patient Safety Program

Your DOD Patient Safety Program (PSP) is a complete program with the goal of creating a culture of patient safety and quality within the Military Health System (MHS). We encourage a systems approach to creating a safer patient environment; engaging MHS leadership; promoting collaboration across all three services; and fostering trust, transparency, teamwork, and communication.


Our Mission

Our Mission is to promote a culture of safety to end preventable patient harm by engaging, educating and equipping patient-care teams to put evidenced-based leading practices in place across the organization.

Our Vision

Our Vision is to support the military mission by building organizational commitment and capacity to implement and sustain a culture of safety to protect the health of the patients in our care.

What We Offer

Leadership Engagement:

Leaders are the champions of change. We offer solutions to engage, educate and equip the entire patient care team to be champions for patient safety and institutionalize evidenced-based leading practices.

Teamwork and Awareness:

Sharing information is the key to ensuring all DOD patient care teams have one vision for patient safety. We offer solutions that help teams continuously learn and develop skills to reduce risk and provide high quality care to patients.

Alignment and Partnership:

To reach a systems approach to improving patient safety, we partner and collaborate with patient safety strategic leaders aligning with the MHS mission for an integrated, highly-reliable system of medical training, readiness, and health. As the MHS promotes Ready Reliable Care to be the core of everything we do, leaders at every level and all staff drive high reliability forward to achieve zero preventable harm.
