Berwick, MD, President and CEO of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement announced the IHI's new initiative, the 5 Million Lives Campaign. Dr. Berwick reflected on the achievements of hospitals participating in the IHI 100,000 Lives Campaign and announced the next campaign step, saying, "We're going after harm."
