MAPS works toward its mission of safe care everywhere by engaging a diverse stakeholder coalition that includes a devoted a Board of Directors, membership leaders, dedicated staff, and member group that broadly represent Minnesota's healthcare community. MAPS focuses on educational programming, novel projects, patient and family engagement, and collaboration across all care settings.
In August of 2017, MAPS became a subsidiary of Stratis Health. As one of MAPS' founding members, Stratis Health leads collaboration and innovation in healthcare quality and safety, serving as a trusted expert in facilitating improvement for people and communities. Stratis Health envisions a healthcare system that supports an informed activated consumer and competent satisfied healthcare professionals working in settings that promote optimum care and reduce chance of error.
Throughout its first decade of work, MAPS brought new standards around informed consent, medication safety, and culture of safety to the Minnesota community. In its second decade, MAPS is expanding these efforts and tackling other emerging topics in patient safety, including patient and family engagement, diagnostic error, and transitions of care.

The mission of Minnesota Alliance for Patient Safety (MAPS) is safe care everywhere. We believe that a diverse and inclusive environment is essential for achieving our mission and improving health outcomes across the state of Minnesota. We understand that harm occurs in multiple ways, not only in the medical outcomes of care but in how patients and families are treated. As Dr. Don Berwick stated, lack of dignity is harm. As a result, MAPS is dedicated to fostering a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of our work and in our engagement and support of others who share our commitment safety.
