Another New Site Promotes Patient Safety

The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) announced the launch of a new online resource for patients and their health care professionals at its 17th Annual Meeting and Clinical Congress in Orlando. The Web site, called the Patient Safety Exchange, is now live at www.aacepatientsafetyexchange.com and is free for anyone to use.

Designed to be a comprehensive source for information on improving the safety of health care, the site specifically focuses on systems improvements in patient safety and quality improvement for endocrine disorders such as diabetes, osteoporosis, thyroid disease, and more. It provides a diverse set of educational resources, from case studies to webcasts, and from current news and editorials to interactive discussions. Physicians, allied health professionals, and patients may ask questions in the "Ask the Experts" section of the site. There are also an extensive library and an up-to-date glossary of terms in patient safety on the site.

"It is critically important that up-to-date and accurate information about patient safety be quickly shared with as many people as possible," said Richard Hellman, MD, FACP, FACE, immediate past-president of AACE. "The Patient Safety Exchange will serve as a central hub where patients, their physicians, and their allied health professionals can all exchange ideas and information in order to ensure the best outcomes."
