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.

What our clients are saying

As I complete each module, I am struck by both the scope and information that these modules encompass. My practice and triage considerations have been significantly impacted by this educational offering

Carol Howson,Spohn Hospital Beeville

We couldn’t be more pleased with our relationship with The Sullivan Group. Their risk education has been a hit with our practitioners and combined with the clinical risk assessment tool, we have been able to provide a comprehensive and very focused loss prevention program for our EDs. Now with a decade of claims data across 160 facilities, the data show a strong correlation between success in the program and our approximately 60% reduction in claims frequency.
