With the year coming to an end, some of us here got a little nostalgic and started reminiscing over a great year of webinars. We’ve had such a great time hearing and sharing stories from the healthcare world, and we hope you’ve enjoyed them as well!
In case you’ve missed or want to take a look back with us, here’s a roundup of all our favorite webinars from this year!
Creating a Culture of Safety: From Bedside to Boardroom with Windsor Regional Hospital
Long-time RL clients, Windsor Regional Hospital successfully moved to the current RL6 platform in 2013.

Managing Patient Safety Events with Bryan Health
In this webinar, Sue Corkill, Bryan Health's Clinical Systems Analyst will walk attendees through the health system's structure for reporting, and the methodologies used for capturing information on patient safety events. Learn about why the health system reports their patient safety events, and the methodologies and process for reviewing and managing patient safety events.
Bassett Healthcare Network: Improving Safety in Only 15 Minutes a Day!
At Bassett Medical Center, emerging worries about the culture of safety became apparent in mid-2014. Patient safety event reporting was “stalled out,” and near miss reporting was declining. Leaders were not communicating in a meaningful way about safety concerns. Event investigation and resolution was significantly delayed. Finally, repeat issues were surfacing that were thought to have been “fixed” previously. Bassett Medical Center embarked on developing a safety huddle structure and system that employed a number of novel approaches in order to encourage and sustain engagement and accountability. As a result, the huddle quickly became an embedded and beloved part of the organization’s safety infrastructure. The resulting success has exceeded expectations.
The MRSA Epidemic: A Call to Action
Jeanine Thomas, Founder of MRSA Survivors Network, shares insights and industry updates on the pressing issues facing the state of MRSA surveillance in today's healthcare system. Through the stories of those who have faced the life-threatening infection, attendees will learn about the tools available for MRSA tracking programs, strategies for prevention, and the need for transparency to improve your quality of care and meet regulatory requirements.
Creating and Sustaining a Safety Reporting Community
In recent years, Massachusetts Eye and Ear (MEE) has had a goal of improving the culture of safety through improved safety event reporting. Strategies for this at MEE have included: initiating a comprehensive training program for all staff to enhance reporting, boosting awareness of the need to report safety events, and removing the perceived notion that safety event reporting is punitive. In this presentation, attendees will learn how MEE has increased staff reporting, yielded greater physician and resident trust in event reporting as well as a stronger sense of the importance of safety event reporting among staff, which has contributed to allowing them to overcome obstacles.
Maximizing an Enterprise Risk Management Program at Your Hospital
Increasing numbers of organizations have implemented or are considering comprehensive Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) programs, particularly in the healthcare industry, as a practical means of managing risk and developing appropriate organizational strategies in today’s environment of increasing change and uncertainty. An effective ERM program identifies and manages risk to the successful execution of strategic objectives. ERM can also help maximize organizational performance in the direction of a competitive advantage. This presentation provides an overview of the comprehensive Business Risk Assessment process, a critical element of an effective ERM program and an important step in the move towards full implementation of an ERM program that provides continuous value.
Building a Patient and Employee Safety HRO Program
In this webinar, learn how SCL Health used the “zero harm” HRO mindset to identify potential hazards, proactively prevent incidents, and reduce serious employee and patient safety events by 50 percent in two years. SCL Health’s former vice president and chief safety officer will share how SCL Health developed and implemented its One Safety Program, a comprehensive safety program using HRO methodologies to address both patient and employee safety. Whether your healthcare organization is looking to adopt HRO principles for safety, or you’d like to hear how to standardize cause analysis data and reporting to further protect the safety of your employees and patients, this webinar is right for you.
