Boost Patient Quality and Safety

As we increase access to quality health care, we also are striving to improve the quality of care available to Americans. That's why this budget request includes a 4.4 percent increase in initiatives to increase patient safety by reducing the number of medical errors. This budget also builds on the five-year doubling of the NIH budget by increasing our commitment to medical research to $28.8 billion. That is a 41 percent increase over 2001 and will support nearly 40,000 research project grants - a record total for NIH.
