Baxter signs PSMF’s open data pledge

9th January 2019

Baxter International has signed the Patient Safety Movement Foundation’s open data pledge, showing its understanding of the importance of data sharing in improving patient safety, and committing the company to permitting access to the data generated by their medical devices to anyone seeking to improve patient safety, such as researchers and software engineers. Through sharing data generated by their products, in accordance with applicable patient privacy laws and without disclosing any proprietary algorithms or protected data, Baxter will help further the development of predictive algorithms that can notify clinicians and patients of dangerous trends, facilitating quicker interventions.
Joe Kiani, Patient Safety Movement Foundation founder and chairman, said: “Every day we hear more stories about hospitals wishing to use predictive algorithms to identify deteriorating patients early. The greater the number of companies that sign the Open Data Pledge, the closer we’ll be to creating a patient data superhighway that will help create predictive algorithms and decision support tools to help hospitals reach ZERO preventable patient deaths. We thank Baxter for joining this effort.”
Sumant Ramachandra, Baxter International chief scientific and technology officer and SVP, said: “We signed the Open Data Pledge as part of our ongoing commitment to help transform patient care and improve patient safety. Patient safety is paramount to our mission to save and sustain lives.”
