By following best practice protocols enabled through the use of health information and technology and creating mechanisms for reporting potential safety threats, hospitals can reduce adverse events. This webinar will detail a series of best practices and technical applications to support the creation of a “culture of safety” and help mitigate potential risks to patient safety.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Adopt a system of best practices to ensure a safety-driven reporting culture within your hospital and health system.
  2. Develop technology capable of testing information technology to ensure it is working correctly.
  3. Identify the effectiveness and good catches within your system of clinical decision support and best practice alerts.
