Implementing the New JCAHO Safety Standards with Minimal Effort





Length of Program:  90 minutes


Course Description:


The new JCAHO safety standards are a high priority for compliance.  JCAHO, CMS (formerly HCFA), and the public are all requiring specific changes in healthcare safety.  However, JCAHO and the American Hospital Association have stated that no new bureaucracy is needed.


Content for the program will include the following:

  • A concise explanation of the new safety standards demonstrating the practical nature of the expectations,

  • A step-by-step mechanism to incorporate the safety expectations into your existing Performance Improvement structure without assigning extra staff,  

  • The detailed measures and the reports needed to satisfy the new leadership standards for the safety program.

  • Practical examples of care that can be improved using the new safety approach to actually improve your patient satisfaction and reduce the cost of care.


Target Audience: 

Target audience: (The presentation can be formatted to be appropriate to all of the following or targeted to any sub segmented group.)  The program is designed for risk Managers, Performance Improvement Professionals, Safety Officers, Senior Organizational Leaders, and Medical Staff Leaders responsible for monitoring and improving patient safety and reducing medical errors.
