The Value of Transparency in Advancing Safety and Promoting High Reliability: Legal & Ethical Issues
1.0 CME Credit
1.0 CE Credit
ABQAURP sub-specialty credits: Patient Safety/Risk Management 1.0, Physician Advisor 1.0, Managed Care 1.0, Transitions of Care 1.0, Case Management 1.0
This course is an important overview of how various state and federal laws have historically limited transparency. In many instances, this has resulted in the protection of paper taking precedence over the protection of patients and caregivers. Find out how changes in the law and new regulations seek to advance a more transparent culture and gain an understanding of the multiple attributes of transparency in a highly reliable learning culture.
Providers will determine the risks of transparency and be able to then design processes to advance learning, promote safety, and minimize risk while protecting data.
This session was recorded live at our 2017 Annual Health Care Quality & Patient Safety Conference and is a portion of the online course entitled: A Multifaceted Approach to Health Care Quality and Patient Safety.
At the conclusion of the activity, attendees will be able to:
Define the term transparency as it relates to disclosure, critical analysis, and internal/external benchmarking
Describe the tension between data protection and data sharing as well as the legal factors fueling this tension
Design proactive processes to accelerate learning and maintain high reliability while also protecting important data
Describe both the 'upside' and 'downside' risk of transparency
