Patient safety experts see aviation group as model for health care

My lede:

Patient safety experts have long touted the aviation industry’s use of checklists and foolproof communication procedures as a model for how doctors and hospitals can reduce the toll of medical errors.

Now a group of prominent physicians and quality experts argues that health care should copy a voluntary public-private aviation safety partnership that has reduced fatal crashes by more than half since the mid-1990s.

The whole shebang.
