Are you seeing the Blips on your Risk RADAR?
Time: 11:00 AM ET
Speakers: Kenneth Rohde, President, KRRohde LLC

From a Risk perspective, our goal is not only to mitigate risks when they do occur, but ideally to see them coming and head them off at the pass. Without some kind of forward looking RADAR we end up being surprised more than we like. The more we can use the organization’s existing data to help provide early warnings the better. An ideal RADAR process will certainly include the event data we associate with Risk Management, but with the addition of some other early warning indicators and some adjustments in our analysis we may be able to significantly improve our early warning process. As our organizations get increasingly complex, and the risks get greater, we need to keep thinking about how we can improve our ability to prevent as well as mitigate.
The Agile Healthcare Organization: How Integrated Risk Management Improves Response in Times of Crisis

The pandemic put Healthcare Provider Organizations front and center, needing to respond to new risks literally overnight. Whether it’s the rapid expansion of virtual care, or combating critical supply chain shortages, HPOs need to have the agility to quickly and accurately adjust their course.
Integrated Risk Management (IRM) helped one country respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to significantly better outcomes than its neighbor. In this session, we’ll discuss how IRM proved critical to an early and effective response to COVID-19 and the positive outcomes that have accrued.
Rethinking Risk Management through High Reliability
Time: 1:10 PM ET
Speakers: Mary Reich Cooper, MD, JD, Program Director, Healthcare Quality & Safety, Jefferson College of Population Health
Sponsored by: Thomas Jefferson University
It is a risk manager’s dream to avoid replicating adverse outcomes that occur not only once in their organizations, but multiple times before they are fixed. If organizations had unlimited resources, they could go back and redesign their structures and processes so they were fail-safe. Without those unlimited resources, a different solution is needed. Using high reliability concepts to redesign structures, processes and culture, organizations can prepare for a lower risk environment for their patients and visitors.
