The aviation and healthcare industry share obvious commonalities like the need for consumer safety and error minimization. A pilot is responsible for the safety and well-being of all the people aboard a flight; similarly, a doctor is responsible for their patients. In 2019, the global accident rate for the aviation industry was 3.0 per million scheduled departures. On the other hand, medical errors accounted for the third-highest cause of mortality. There are obvious distinctions between the two industries, but what makes the aviation industry safer than medicine? Join Col. Dr. K Nageshwar Rao, Chief Medical Officer of Indigo Airlines, to discuss areas where healthcare can learn from aviation.
