Managing Risk in Ambulatory Settings – Building Awareness through an Early Warning System
Thursday, November 21, 2013 @ 12:00pm CST
The terms “continuum of care” and “integrated healthcare delivery” are not new … but the healthcare arena is starting to feel the impact of each of these concepts. In the context of Accountable Care Organizations and other provider organizations, these terms take on the meaning of resource configurations designed to make the best use of the “Value Based Reimbursement” model under healthcare reform. In the context of risk-quality-safety (RQS) management, these terms can conjure up both anxiety and anticipation; anxiety from the knowledge that, in reality, most healthcare systems have not truly or fully managed RQS across the entire delivery system, and anticipation that these new configurations might signal an opportunity to do just that.
During this webinar, we will look at the components of Ambulatory Safety Management and discuss a process that can help create a reporting culture within ambulatory settings that results in an “Early Warning System” for potential RQS issues.
This webinar will help attendees:
- Describe the areas of allegations of medical malpractice associated with physician office practice and ambulatory settings
- Identify events and situations that can signal potential for adverse events to arise
- Identify the characteristics of a program to implement an Early Warning System in the office practice and other ambulatory settings

Lead the Change to Improved Patient Safety
Improving hand hygiene is a key component of reducing infections as part of an overall patient safety and quality program. Yet the current manner of measuring compliance through direct observation is an antiquated method that produces unreliable data. Advances in technology have created more accurate and cost-effective alternatives to measure and improve hand hygiene compliance.
