The Value and Impact of Implementing an Interdisciplinary Proactive Audit Program to Address Safety Issues in Real Time

The continued record of poor hospital patient safety resulting in more than 440,000 deaths annually suggests the current approach has significant shortcomings. With an industry now incentivized to reach high reliability, how do we get there? This session will discuss a proactive approach to aggressively seeking all impacts to safety and fixing them in real time. By developing ongoing tracking to ensure that once an issue is addressed it stays addressed, hospitals have a true path to the goal of achieving zero harm. Hospitals that are successful in driving high reliability create a market differentiator around patient satisfaction and safety. How can technology assist in streamlining and standardizing data collection, resolution, and metric management to achieve high reliability goals?

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the elements required to create a Proactive Safety Audit Program to mitigate risk
    (e.g., Rounding, Mock Survey, Safety Audits, Event Management, Patient Relations, and Surveillance)
  • Outline the types of data needed for a successful safety audit program
  • Discuss the importance of technology to streamline and standardize data collection and resolution
  • Make a case for implementing a technology solution to assist your organization on its high reliability journey
