Virtual Patient Care

The Physician-Patient Alliance for Health & Safety (PPAHS) was formed in 2011 to help reduce preventable adverse events and deaths. As the name suggests, PPAHS is a coalition of both physicians and other clinicians, and patients and their families, who have experienced an adverse event or, more likely, a death in their family or with someone they know. PPAHS is committed to helping patients better understand the medications and treatments prescribed by their physicians and to improving physician-patient communications.
