This webinar will cover the new paradigms for designing safe patient care in hospitals using healthcare systems engineering methodology such as the one used at Mayo Clinic. It will discuss how to predict harm to patients proactively and how to plan for Zero Harm at little or no cost resulting in high return on investment. It will cover real healthcare examples from the instructor’s experience based on his book Safer Hospital Care.
Why Should You Attend:
Hospitals in USA kill about 440,000 patients a year from mistakes, and the number of mistakes has been rising for the last two decades. The Six Sigma efforts have been a big failure. You will learn how to use error prediction tools.
The webinar will teach you how to prevent safety hazards proactively, and how to think creatively so that the cost of preventing unsafe incidences is very low or zero.
