June 20th-24th is Healthcare Risk Management Week (HRM Week)!
The American Society for Healthcare Risk Management, also known as ASHRM, is celebrating HRM Week from June 20th to the 24th. This week is all about showing gratitude and appreciation towards risk management and patient safety professionals for all of the great work they do to keep patients safe and secure.
The theme for 2016 is “Making a World of Difference“.
The Risk Authority Stanford is presenting HRM Week and is hoping that the chosen 2016 theme will convey a message of unity. “Together health care risk managers are “Making a World of Difference” in health care by advancing patient safety, reducing uncertainty and maximizing value.” Risk Management professionals ensure that patients always receive the safe and trusted healthcare they deserve, so this week is all about celebrating them.
In the spirit of risk management and the professionals that do the job so well, we thought we’d share a Q&A video with healthcare and cybersecurity expert, Dr. Sanjaya Kumar. In the video, Dr. Kumar discusses the risk of cybersecurity in the healthcare industry and the possible impending threats; a topic risk management professionals know about all too well.
We hope you got some helpful information out of that video. And remember, if you see a friend or colleague that’s a risk management professional, give them a high five for HRM week, wouldya?
