It is a unique world that Healthcare Risk Managers live in; regarded as leaders which can result in periodic public scrutiny. As reflected in the ASHRM vision, we see our role as advocates for safe and trusted healthcare. We recognize that by bestowing the best care to our patients we are also able to provide financial savings to the organizations we serve.
After a recent article that decried Healthcare Risk Managers as inhibitors of transparent care (Elliott, 2013), ASHRM resurrected the 2003 Monographs with the question: Are these as relevant today as they were ten years ago? Do risk managers support a culture of transparency? A recent peer review of the monographs resulted with a resounding “yes!”
The following monographs, presents a perspective that will allow the Risk Manager and the concerned organization to approach open communication with an understanding of the power of disclosure, a framework for developing appropriate policies and procedures that will support the effort, and a template for teaching the skill of humane disclosure.
