Crushing the Silos: A Cultural Imperative in the Age of Healthcare Reform.
Chicago, IL (Vocus) September 28, 2010
Clarity Group, Inc., a leading provider of healthcare risk, quality and patient safety education, software and consulting services, announced today that it is offering a new program in its 2010 Webinar series, “Crushing the Silos: A Cultural Imperative in the Age of Healthcare Reform.”
Since the Institute of Medicine Report in 1999, To Err is Human, that reported that upwards of 98,000 people die each year due to medical error, healthcare providers have struggled with ways to enhance patient safety by focusing on structural design and by attempting to create a culture of safety in the healthcare workplace. As studies have shown, true results have been meager. “Our healthcare organizations remain fragmented internally causing duplication of effort and perpetuation of the silos of care and focus that are detrimental to creating a true culture of safety. As Healthcare Reform takes hold, those organizations that can successfully integrate services to enhance the health of the population they serve will be the winners in healthcare,” stated Anna Marie Hajek, President and CEO of Clarity Group, Inc. “As we work with our clients it is apparent that they recognize the sea change that Healthcare Reform can bring and they are seeking ways to approach healthcare in a more integrated manner… and that became the impetus for this program,” continued Ms. Hajek
The Webinar is scheduled for November 10, 2010. An excellent panel of experts has been brought together to discuss what is now what they believe to be a cultural imperative for leadership to create a corporate vision for excellence. It is time to Crush the Silos!
