This topic is critical for all healthcare risk managers. It is prudent for healthcare risk managers to master the skill of conducting a well thought out ERM risk assessment for emerging technology. This webinar will discuss some trends with 3-D printing, droids and drones and project future use in the healthcare industry. Then the presentation will focus on the ERM framework and how to conduct a risk assessment for this type of technology. The practical approach will engage the audience and allow them to take away lessons learned to adapt a similar approach to new technology being proposed for introduction into their organizations. Ultimately, by implementing such an approach the healthcare risk manager is protecting patients and staff from unexpected injury and the organization from liability. In addition, this type of exercise is potentially creating value for the organization by introducing the benefits and possibility for revenue generation and/or cost savings across the organization.

  • Summarize the benefits and liability exposure associated with using 3-D printing, droids and drones in healthcare.
  • Describe how to conduct a comprehensive review using domains and a risk list when developing an ERM plan.
  • Identify the steps to conduct an emerging technology risk assessment.
  • Define benefits of presenting the liability and value creation findings.
