Top Ten Target Hazards for 2013 in Leadership, Practices, and Technology

 Session Overview

It's that time of year when we look back on our accomplishments and set a course (with great trepidation) for new challenges... but in the back of our minds we anxiously wonder, "Are we focusing on the right thing? What are the real hazards facing organizations in 2013?" Join this webinar for an early holiday gift and gain unique insight on the hazards facing organizations for Leadership, Practices, and Technology.

TMIT High Performer Webinar Series is hosting two experts who will share their perspectives in these three key areas, discuss how to tackle these hazards, and share resources on each topic. Hear from renowned HIT expert David Classen, MD, and Charles Denham, MD, globally recognized speaker in leadership and safety, as well as a reactor panel representing patients and caregivers. You can join in the conversation by submitting your questions and voting in your own list.

As an extra stocking-stuffer, Dr. Classen will cover the IOM report "Health IT and Patient Safety: Building Safer Systems for Better Care," and discuss how health information systems will be tested using simulators, and provide a roadmap of future developments in the exciting dynamic space.
