Establishing a common set of safety metrics that reflect meaningful outcomes is key to accelerating patient safety improvement, according to the National Patient Safety Foundation’s landmark Free From Harm report.

But how can hospitals and health systems consistently minimize safety concerns?

Watch this on-demand webinar featuring speaker Rosemary Baczewski, Chief Clinical Officer at Greater Hudson Valley Health System, now known as Garnet Health, to learn how they developed and maintain a “Harm Index” as a focal point for driving attention and action around patient safety—from the board to the frontlines. During the webinar, Ms. Baczewski will share how a robust analytical infrastructure enabled her organization to:

  • Take data from multiple sources, run queries, and deliver uniform, severity- and risk-adjusted scorecards across departments
  • Drive action and results, including a Baldrige recognition
  • Engage clinicians and create a culture focused on patient safety
