Healthcare Quality, Patient Safety, and Sentinel Event Best Practices Track at the 2012 Global TapRooT® Summit

Are you involved in performance improvement efforts in the healthcare industry? Then you should be planning to attend the 2012 Global TapRooT® Summit Track titled:

Healthcare Quality, Patient Safety, and Sentinel Event Best Practices

Most conferences about improving patient safety, healthcare quality, and reducing sentinel events are strictly organized by and attended by healthcare professionals. This provides good sharing of best practices within the healthcare industry, but does not provide networking or benchmarking outside the healthcare industry.

The TapRooT® Summit provides both in-industry networking/benchmarking and cross-industry/cross-functional networking/benchmarking. Here’s one healthcare industry patient safety professional talking about her experience at a previous Summit:

But what about the 2012 Global TapRooT® Summit? There are several sessions at the 2012 Global TapRooT® Summit that have a strictly healthcare focus:

  • What does increasing expectations for healthcare quality and patient safety mean to your improvement efforts?
  • Response lessons learned from the Joplin Disaster.
  • Using electronic medical records to improve healthcare quality and patient safety.
  • Using Baldrige criteria to achieve performance improvement.

These provide opportunities to network and benchmark with healthcare professionals.

Plus, there are also sessions that span industries and disciplines:

  • Criminal prosecutions of accidents.
  • Developing a fatigue risk management plan.
  • Positive Contributions in facilitation and management interactions.

But that’s not all. The Keynote Speakers also provide lessons learned and best practices that cross industries.

For example, Astronaut Ken Mattingly, of Apollo 13 fame, talkes about Lessons Learned from Apollo 13 and Space Shuttle Operations.
