Benchmark Risk Management

1. How is risk assessed in health care organizations today? What role does evidence-based design have in the risk assessment/planning process?

2. Discuss at least two areas where process inefficiencies are present today (patient safety, patient satisfaction, quality outcomes, or workforce retention).
What is happening in each of these areas that could cause concern for health care organizations?

3. How can these areas of high risk be transformed through the use of risk assessment tools or effective work groups to manage and overcome inefficiencies?

4. Using the system-based approach, what strategies could be used to improve or develop effective work groups?
