The I-PASS Study Group is a collaborative of researchers, hospitalists, and medical education specialists who developed a package of interventions to standardize the I-PASS handoff process and study its impact. Once I-PASS was validated, the Study Group became focused on implementing I-PASS in as many hospitals as possible to reduce medical errors and improve patient safety. The Study Group realized that without the appropriate resources, guidance and oversight, hospitals couldn’t implement the program in a way that could be sustained. The I-PASS Institute was created in 2016 to help achieve widespread adoption and sustainment.
