  • Healthcare Risk Management Week 2012:
    Getting to Zero™ through the Power of One

    ASHRM President Mary Anne Hilliard

    2012 President
    ASHRM

    On behalf of the 5,600 plus members of the American Society for Healthcare Risk Management, welcome to Healthcare Risk Management Week! This year’s theme, “Getting to Zero™ through the Power of One” highlights ASHRM’s ongoing initiative to help eliminate preventable serious safety events. Our goal will take a collective effort but will happen one person, one leader, one organization at a time. Be sure you and your team are in the game because we’re all in-it-to-win-it for ourselves and our organizations, but more importantly for our patients and their families. We invite you to join us in furthering our goal of Getting to Zero™ during Healthcare Risk Management Week and throughout the year!

    Mary Anne Hilliard Signature

    Healthcare Risk Management (HRM) Week, June 18-22, 2012, is ASHRM’s annual campaign to raise awareness about the critical role risk management and patient safety professionals play in helping to eliminate preventable serious safety events. Throughout HRM Week, ASHRM is offering tips and solutions that risk managers and patient safety experts can employ to help prevent some of the most common serious safety events, many of which are aligned with the Hospital Engagement Network (HEN) Initiative. Join ASHRM as we celebrate HRM Week and “Getting to Zero™ through the Power of One”—one person, one leader, one organization at a time.

    Now Available: Recorded HRM WEEK WEBINAR: Why Children's National Reduced Serious Safety Events by Nearly 80 percent and How You Can Too
    Children's National's experience demonstrates that there is great potential in driving down preventable harm by combining process improvement with behavioral and human factor driven change. In other words, an empowered nurse or doctor, or even environmental service worker, has a significant capacity for communicating and responding to his or her environment in a manner that improves reliability of performance and reduces the risk of missteps or patient harm. Children's National refers to that potential as the "Power of One" — the collective effort that will help "Get to Zero" but will happen one individual, one leader, one organization at a time. If you missed this webinar, you may now purchase a recorded version of the program. If you attended the live webinar but would like to view it again, ASHRM will email you the link to the recorded program. Click Here for more details
