Strategic Advisory Services

Q: What if we actually put protecting patients first?

A: Patients would get what they want.

Just like the nuclear power or airline industry, how do we create a sustainable culture of safety? The kind that stays compliant, rapidly adjusts in real-time to near misses and drives an ongoing culture of safety?

Challenges in Managing Healthcare Risk:

  • Variety of Stakeholders: Doctors, nurses, directors, HR, risk managers, safety experts, claims administrators, boards, captives, regulators, brokers, carriers, third-party administrators
  • Siloed Systems: Multiple operating systems, vendors, platforms and priorities
  • Antiquated Technology: Spreadsheets, binders, SharePoint, fragmented reporting
  • High Reliability: Determining a process, getting to zero, sustainability

The Process

Verge Health Strategic Advisory Services offers a guided process that assists health systems in evolving to a state of maturity in regard to enterprise risk management. Starting with an assessment to create a baseline and establish the ROI for achieving high reliability, Verge offers the process, platform and maturity model to reach high reliability and stay there.
