Nine medical device companies ranging from industry titans to small-cap movers inked a pledge to make the data generated by their devices available to patients, in a move aimed at ridding the healthcare system of unnecessary deaths by 2020.

The pledges, led by Masimo founder & CEO Joe Kiani, capped the 1st Patient Safety Science & Technology Summit last night in Laguna Beach, Calif. Former President Bill Clinton was the keynote speaker, urging attendees to work together to eliminate unnecessary deaths and improve the healthcare system.
