MentorHealth to Present Webinar on "Healthcare Risk Management: The Way It Should Be"

Fremont, California (PressExposure) February 12, 2013 -- Healthcare administration should never be in any doubt or by fluke. Healthcare providers need to be smart and quick, and they need to be in compliance with regulations.

Literally tens of thousands of lives could be saved if healthcare providers eliminated medical errors, most of which are avoidable. It did not surprise the medical fraternity when the epoch-making report of the Institute of Medicine, entitled To Err is Human, said as much way back in 1999, for it only officially echoed what medical practitioners were aware of.

The advantage of having an error-free medical system is that precious lives are saved; in addition, the healthcare unit will be free of fear that it could get into legal problems due to negligence, which could prove to be very expensive. The ideal way of going about this is by following the risk-based method. Risk management techniques will help healthcare providers reduce and eliminate an adverse outcome.

This webinar will help participants get an idea of how to take a risk-based approach to minimizing risk relating to the following: harm caused to patients, liability exposure of health care providers, public health and protecting employees from negligence.

It will cover the following areas:

o General requirements of risk management
