Plymouth Meeting’s ECRI Institute has been awarded a $3 million grant by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation for a three-year project to help improve electronic health records and health information technology.

The new grant will support three years of groundwork by The Partnership for Health IT Patient Safety. The Partnership is a multi-stakeholder collaborative assembled by the ECRI Institute three years ago to make health information technology safer.

“With the increasing presence of health IT in all aspects of health care, we need to remain mindful of safety issues that are unintended consequences of this new technology,” said Janet Corrigan, chief program officer for patient care at the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.

The expert advisory panel and collaborating organizations of the Partnership includes clinicians, researchers, health IT developers, patient safety organizations, as well as healthcare providers across acute and non-acute care sectors.

“We deeply appreciate the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s commitment to building a sustainable private sector approach to health IT safety,” said Ronni Solomon, ECRI Institute’s executive vice president and general counsel.
