Survey-Ready Risk Management Is Not Enough:
Why Providers Must Be Patient-Ready to Create Lasting Patient Safety Improvements
According to a recent study by Johns Hopkins, 1 in 10 deaths in the U.S. can be attributed to medical error. This whitepaper discusses the ways health systems are working to create a culture of safety and minimize the occurrence of adverse medical events. It also illustrates how better results can be achieved by switching the focus from meeting regulatory requirements (e.g. Being survey-ready) to implementing a system-wide cultural transformation to deliver better care to patients.
