Targeting Patient Safety Goals
As a result of dramatic changes in the healthcare industry, hospital organizations have been employing a record number of physicians and assuming an unprecedented amount clinical risk exposure. In response, The Sullivan Group developed the RSQ® Solutions - Patient Safety Fundamentals Program to provide risk managers with a scalable solution for ensuring all clinicians receive education and training on important risk and safety issues. In addition, the Patient Safety Fundamentals Program explores other important timely topics that support the healthcare organization’s patient safety goals and migration towards seamless clinical integration and care coordination.
All clinicians, regardless of their specialty, benefit from the extensive RSQ® Education library. Hospital leadership can choose from a wide range of topics that address recent regulatory changes, such as value-based purchasing and readmissions, as well as other traditional areas of concern like communication and medical-legal issues.
In addition to a broad course offering, the Patient Safety Fundamentals Program gives organizations the flexibility to target specific areas of clinical risk. These courses explore the root cause of common malpractice claims, such as failure to diagnose or treat, and provide clinical pearls of wisdom that immediately impact patient care.

To help develop the CORE Program, The Sullivan Group organized a group of nationally recognized risk and safety-focused clinical champions from a broad spectrum of medical specialties. Members of the RSQ® Collaborative meet regularly to identify emerging patient safety and risk issues and prioritize course development. Together, the RSQ® Collaborative offers over 300 years of clinical and medical-legal experience.
What our clients are saying
In deciding whether to implement The Sullivan Group’s clinical decision support into our Emergency Department electronic record, we decided to test the validity of the system prior to purchase, by taking three events that resulted in significant patient harm, followed by expensive litigation, and enter them into the system as if they were new patients presented to the ED. In all 3 scenarios, we felt the critical alerts that were triggered and the clinical prompts that were provided would have prevented the errors that led to the negative outcomes.
Sacred Heart Health System
I find the Sullivan Group modules to be informative and easy to incorporate into our practice in the ER. They are thought-provoking and of great value to my work.
