Creating a Culture of Innovation, and Ambulatory Infections
TMIT is delighted to welcome Fran Griffin, RRT, MPA, who will present on the characteristics of organizations that work on innovations, and the strategies they employ to support innovative culture. Ms. Griffin provides a unique and rich perspective as a Senior Advisor at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation and a faculty member at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement working on initiatives such as the Global Trigger tool and Medication Management and Reconciliation. Following Ms. Griffin, Joe Perz, PhD, Prevention Team Leader in the Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion at the CDC, will provide an update on some of the CDC’s findings from the field and potential approaches to mitigate infection risks to patients as organizations face the challenges of providing a uniform standard of care along the delivery continuum during this phase of healthcare consolidation. Our speakers will be joined by a blue-ribbon panel of patient-safety leaders and advocates, including Arlene Salamendra, TMIT Patient Advocate.

They will also become aware of some of the leading risks of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and patient safety during acquisition and consolidation.
Accountability: Participants will understand who in an organization should be accountable for fostering innovation, and how it can be applied to some of the challenges of certain HAI best practices.
Ability: Participants will understand what knowledge and resources are required to better foster innovation in their organizations, and will understand how "adherence gaps" related to safe injection practices and basic infection control have led to outbreaks and avoidable patient harms.
Action: Participants will learn what actions leaders can take to foster innovation. They will also learn how to minimize some overlooked patient safety risks and potential liabilities associated with healthcare integration.
