A vital part of the Betsy Lehman Center's mission is to spread the word about creative solutions to pressing patient safety challenges. We launched Patient Safety Beat to do just that in a simple and engaging way. This month, we present our "top 10" picks from our inaugural issues. As we look ahead to the new year, we invite you to tell us about your breakthroughs that are helping to make health care in Massachusetts as safe as possible in all settings. We'd love to share your stories with our 4,000 subscribers. Thank you for your engagement in our work. We wish you a happy holiday season!

Patient Safety Beat is published monthly by the Betsy Lehman Center, a state agency that uses communications, research, and data to catalyze the efforts of providers, policymakers, and consumers working toward safer health care in Massachusetts.
