MITSS has formed many strong partnerships and collaborations within the healthcare community and actively seeks to cultivate new ones.  We believe that our vitality and effectiveness in achieving our mission are directly related to the depth and strength of these partnerships.  We are committed to advancing bold patient safety initiatives, and MITSS have been nationally recognized for our ability to partner with the healthcare community in this pursuit.

MITSS recognizes that each healthcare organization has its own unique culture, systems, and barriers to change.   Therefore, our current service offerings are tailored to each organization’s specific needs.  We are available to consult with your organization and make an assessment of your particular challenges and strengths.  MITSS can then assist in putting together a plan to maximize your organization’s patient safety initiatives to include support for patients, families, and clinicians involved in adverse events.

We can change the current landscape by integrating support for patients, families, and clinicians into the way healthcare delivers care.  Give us a call today – together, we can break down the barriers that have prevented supporting our patients, families, and caregivers following unexpected outcomes.
