    ASHRM Publishes New Risk Management Pearls for Medication Safety: Part I and Part II

    Risk Management Pearls: Applying ERM

    Medication Safety:
    Part I

    Risk Management Pearls: Applying ERM

    Medication Safety:
    Part II

    Medication safety challenges are a priority for consumers, providers, regulatory/accreditation agencies, and healthcare leaders. Although medications are intended to benefit patients, the medication-use system is a potentially high-risk and error-prone component of the healthcare delivery system in both inpatient and outpatient delivery systems. Opportunities for harm may occur at any stage of the medication-use process, from selecting, procuring and prescribing, to storing, preparing, dispensing, administering, and monitoring. ASHRM’s new Risk Management Pearls for Medication Safety: Part I and Part II summarize medication error prevention strategies and practices that are effective in reducing and eliminating patient harm.

    ASHRM Pearls for Enterprise Risk Management: The Foundation

    The Foundation

    The barrage of technological, organizational, and legal changes will continue to be commonplace in the healthcare industry. As a result, new and additional forms of risk will arise. Today’s healthcare risk manager must be able to identify and address these issues.  The Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) approach efficiently and effectively addresses organizational-wide risk, especially in unpredictable and ever-changing environments, and ultimately helps improve patient safety. ASHRM’s Risk Management Pearls for Enterprise Risk Management: The Foundation is designed to help you understand ERM, how it can benefit your organization and help improve patient safety. ERM: The Foundation begins with an overview of ERM, and progresses to implementation of an ERM program and its benefits. Click here to learn more.

    Risk Management Pearls: Applying ERM

    Applying ERM

    Enterprise risk management (ERM) requires a system-wide, integrated approach to addressing risk in your organization. The foundation for your organization’s approach is the enterprise risk management plan. ASHRM’s Risk Management Pearls: Applying ERM explains how to obtain buy-in from the governing body and all stakeholders; how to link the plan with other organizational initiatives; how to roll out the plan; and how to monitor and communicate your organization’s ERM effectiveness.

    Chapters include:

    • The ERM Plan
    • ERM and the Governing Body
    • Creating an ERM Infrastructure
    • ERM Metrics, Dashboards and Scorecards

    2013 ASHRM/Aon Hospital and Physician Professional Liability Benchmark Report

    The cost of medical malpractice is growing at the slowest rate in the fourteen year history of the ASHRM/Aon Hospital and Physician Professional Liability Benchmark Report. The 2013 analysis—distributed by ASHRM and Aon Global Risk Consulting—details the professional liability costs faced by healthcare organizations.

    The 2013 report includes information about:

    • The use of hospital admissions and revenue as a basis for benchmarking medical malpractice cost levels.
    • Attaining efficiencies and savings by employing physicians and using their self-insurance facilities to cover medical malpractice.
    • Achieving cost savings by promoting patient safety, uniformity of risk management and jointly defending claims.

    The analysis will assist you in developing proactive strategies to reduce risk-related costs, and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
