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:

  • Do you know that the hospitals that most profits also make the most mistakes?
  • Why there is no incentive to prevent harm to patients?
  • Why there are more than 1,000 alarms from patients every day, making them inefficient to respond to critical patients?
  • Do you proactively prevent healthcare faults that can result in harm to patients and visitors?
  • Do you have verification and validation strategies for preventing harm?
  • Do all employees have training on “Be Lean, Not Mean”?

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.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Sufficient Understanding is a Pre-requisite to Safe Care Preventing “Indifferencity” to Enhance Patient Safety
  • Continuous innovation is better than continuous improvement
  • Innovations Should Start with Incidence Reports
  • Healthcare Failure Mode and Effects Analysis
  • Doing More with Less is Innovation
  • Re-Invent Quality Management
  • Re-invent Risk Management
  • Human Errors may be Unpreventable, Preventing Harm is an Innovation Managing Safety: Lessons from Aerospace
  • The Paradigm Pioneers
  • Aequanimitas, The Best Known Strategy for Safe Care

Who Will Benefit:

  • Top management
  • R&D engineers and managers
  • Doctors
  • Nursing staff
  • Patient safety staff
  • Quality Assurance staff
  • Risk management staff
  • Marketing managers
  • Service managers
