THREE RIVERS HEALTH RAISES AWARENESS OF HEALTHCARE RISK MANAGEMENT WEEK

Three Rivers Health joins other healthcare organizations in
celebrating Healthcare Risk Management Week Presented by The Risk Authority Stanford,
June 18-22, 2018. This annual campaign from the American Society for Healthcare Risk
Management raises awareness about the critical role risk managers and safety professionals
play in patient safety and patient care practices, quality assurance, safe work environments
and liability. It also promotes solutions to help prevent some of the most common adverse
events.
This year’s theme, “Leading Together” celebrates the leadership that healthcare risk
management professionals provide for their organizations. In an Enterprise Risk
Management environment, the healthcare risk manager provides leadership through
collaboration with stakeholders across the entire organization with the common goal of
delivering safe and trusted health care.
“We recognize that all healthcare workers play a critical role in patient safety, which is why
the concept of Enterprise Risk Management is critical. Teamwork across the healthcare
continuum is moving us closer to zero preventable serious safety events,” said interim CEO
David Shannon.
