Coalition Members

​​Designed to accelerate visibility, opportunity, and thought leadership for solutions providers, vendors, associations, and advocacy groups, the IHI/NPSF Patient Safety Coalition welcomes organizations that recognize the importance of a deeper understanding of issues facing their stakeholders when providing safer care.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

IHI’s ability to advance health and health system improvement depends crucially on maintaining an independent position with respect to commercial products and services. “Independence” is a matter of both actual and perceived relationships with potential sponsors and partners.
 
IHI has established principles and guidelines​​ for acceptance of "Commercial Support," that is, external funds from for-profit corporations, partnerships, or other entities selling goods or services related to health and health care, or who otherwise stand to gain financially from association with IHI.
