The Michigan Health and Safety Coalition (MH&SC) is a collaborative quality improvement effort focused on improving patient safety in Michigan. MH&SC was first organized in 2000, following the release of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) report titled, “To Err is Human”.  In 2006, MH&SC incorporated in Michigan and received approval from the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
