New York Times article recognizes the Institute for Healthcare Improvement

Since 1991, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) under the leadership of Don Berwick, MD, MPP, has been leading quality and safety improvement across the world. The IHI Open School for Health Professions provides an interdisciplinary learning environment for health professions students where they engage in conversations about the quality and safety of health care systems. Today, more than 20,000 students are engaged in 41 states and 24 countries. These efforts and the need to move from discussions about patient safety to curricular changes gained national attention this week as an article topic in the January 26th edition of the New York Times.
