Swiss Re Corporate Solutions Healthcare Risk Management Update

Episode 6: Getting to zero patient harm: The case for high reliability tools

High reliability in healthcare means consistent quality care for every patient, every time. Yet preventable, adverse patient safety events and quality problems continue to occur in hospitals and healthcare systems nationwide. The Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare aims to transform healthcare into a high reliability industry by developing proven, effective, data-driven solutions to healthcare’s most complex problems. Recently released solutions include the Preventing Falls Targeted Solutions Tool® (TST®) and Oro™ 2.0 High Reliability Organizational Assessment and Resource Library.

In the latest Healthcare Risk Management Update, Mike Midgley hosts Erin DuPree, M.D., FACOG, Chief Medical Officer and Vice President, Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare, and Beth Neidlinger, MSN, RN, CENP, Coordinator of Workforce Development & Professional Outcomes at Trinity Mother Frances Hospital. They discuss:

  • The Center's work, improvement methodologies and analytical capabilities
  • High reliability in healthcare
  • Trinity Mother Frances Hospital’s success reducing patient falls with the Preventing Falls Targeted Solutions Tool® (TST®)

The webinar has been approved by ASHRM for 1.0 contact hour of Continuing Education (CE) Credit towards the requirements of the ASHRM designations of FASHRM (Fellow) and DFASHRM (Distinguished Fellow), and CPHRM renewal.
