Over 20 years ago, the Institute of Medicine released their report, To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System. This topic has continued to be a pressing issue two decades later, as healthcare leaders seek to establish a culture of safety that focuses on system improvements and well-designed, sustainable processes and solutions that make healthcare safer for patients and staff.
In this fireside chat, we’ll explore the role that technology has played in healthcare safety, as well as strategies for shifting the burdens that impact clinicians’ focus on quality, safer care.
- Creating efficiencies to reduce workload and administrative burdens, increasing time to observe and care for patients
- Streamlining supply chain management systems so nursing staff have access to supplies and equipment when they need it
- Improving sterilization processes and equipment maintenance procedures to ensure safe equipment is used in patient care
