Better handoffs.
Safer care.

  • The I-PASS Study is a multi-site effort to standardize the handoff process for better handoffs and safer care.
  • The I-PASS Study is funded by a $3 million grant from the US Department of Health and Human Services with additional support provided by member institutions, private foundations, and additional groups including the Initiative for Innovation in Pediatrics Education (IIPE) and the Pediatric Research into Inpatient Settings (PRIS) Network.
  • It is the goal of the I-PASS Study Group, which includes over 50 educators, hospitalists and health researchers, to disseminate materials aimed at improving handoffs of care in an effort to reduce medical errors.
  • The I-PASS Curriculum Collection is the award-winning product of the I-PASS Study. It is currently available by request.
