March educational programs draw positive reviews
On March 13, The Risk Authority Stanford and Aon held a special workshop guided by an industry expert, exploring how healthcare leaders can use Design Thinking to generate value-driven solutions in healthcare. Attendees learned the fundamentals of Design Thinking and how to use it to generate powerful solutions for the most pressing challenges and risks facing healthcare leaders. Design Thinking is a mindset and methodology for problem solving that is being leveraged by the most successful organizations to drive innovation and value.

Capped at 25 participants, this was a collaborative and hands-on experience where participants learned new tools to spark innovation and value creation in their organizations. The event was very well-received, and when asked to name the best parts of the workshop, participant comments included:
  • Simon made the material very understandable from the beginning. He engaged everyone immediately. I liked how the examples were simple to build up to more complex.

  • Hands on activities

  • Role playing to bring ideas to reality

  • Additional skills to use with any design project

  • Interaction with all participants

  • Participation by all attendees. Learning Design Thinking - never heard of it before. Empathetic approach - I can use it in my work.

  • Being pushed into using my critical thinking skills. The fast pace.
TRA GSC’s annual Medical Staff Leadership Advance was held at the Hyatt Regency in Greenville on Thursday and Friday, March 22 & 23, 2018. Fifty-two participants from 14 facilities attended the Advance, now in its 17th year. Our premier educational event for physicians, advanced practice providers, and risk managers, this year’s program focused on the potential pitfalls of electronic medical records, issues inherent in monitoring patients, and what we have learned about improving documentation.

Along with featuring nationally known speakers who addressed broad issues regarding the role of technology, the two-day event included presentations and case studies from risk managers and claims consultants with a comprehensive understanding of liability issues in South Carolina.

The Advance was, once again, a great success, with evaluation comments including:
  • I think that focus on documentation really helped, and showing how important it is to document, and not that is just an afterthought. I think that it was eye opening to the physicians in the room.

  • The Q&A was very beneficial due to the interactions of the group.

  • Enjoyed the program and speakers, and am glad I was invited.

  • Great subject experts!

  • Better understanding of varying content of audit trail, better understanding of pitfalls of EHR as it relates to documentation.
