PHLIP member program: The Value of Collaboration in Reducing Risks
There is still time to register for The Value of Collaboration in Reducing Risks, the educational program for members of Palmetto Healthcare Liability Insurance Program, to be held at PHTS on March 2, 2012.

This program has been created to set the stage for risk reduction through a collaborative model centered on patient safety and integrating data as a tool to promote positive change. First, CRICO faculty will provide insight on how Structure, Culture, and Leadership can support patient safety. Two PHLIP member risk managers will then explain how they have integrated their quality and risk initiatives to drive change in their facilities. CRICO faculty will provide a brief review of their data and data from the PHLIP liability program and then provide interventions proven to work to address the high-risk areas shared within the PHLIP liability captive. Lastly, PHLIP risk management staff will provide an overview of the new direction in which PHLIP is moving.

Upon completion of this program, participants should be able:
  • To provide an example of a risk reduction model based on collaboration.

  • To discuss how leadership, structure of quality management, risk management, and a culture of patient safety can work together to promote risk reduction.

  • To review the current data as a tool to assist in driving improvements.

  • To provide proven interventions to implement to support risk reduction.
The program will not only emphasize the importance of using multiple resources to develop integrated patient safety activities, but will also provide attendees valuable information on applying those resources to drive change.

Faculty for the program will include:
  • Stephanie Cox, RN, MPA, director of quality management, Greenville Hospital System University Medical Center

  • Heather Riah, MBA assistant vice president of operations, CRICO Strategies

  • Dana Siegal, RN, CPHRM, director of patient safety, CRICO Strategies

  • Sandra Thompson, CPHQ, CSHA, HACP, CPHRM, director of quality resources & corporate compliance officer, Laurens County Health Care System
