This Enterprise Risk Management ASHRM Pearl goes beyond the foundations of gaining management support for an ERM program, identifying specific risk domains and conducting an initial risk assessment.
ASHRM's new Enterprise Risk Management Pearl for Integrating ERM into the Healthcare Culture summarizes how to incorporate ERM concepts and principles in decision-making processes at all levels so that ERM becomes an integral part of the organizational operating culture.
Creating such a culture can be challenging, especially in healthcare organizations where the Return On Investment (ROI) has often been the sole measure for decision making and capital budgeting. ERM calls for an organization to look beyond just the potential financial benefits of alternative strategies and projects.
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.

Medication safety challenges are a priority for consumers, providers, regulatory/accreditation agencies, and healthcare leaders.

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.
