Opening Doors to Greater Reliability

Two Olympians in the health care field will be speaking at our 32nd Annual TAP Conference: Closing Ceremonies: Opening Doors to Greater Reliability.

Kevin E. O’Connor, CSP, is a veteran American College of Physician Executives faculty member who specializes in physician executive leadership, innovation, and organizational development. He will be telling us how to use break through thinking to accomplish our goals. Mark R. Chassin, MD, F.A.C.P., M.P.P., M.P.H., president of The Joint Commission, will be talking about how South Carolina hospitals can partner with his organization to become highly reliable.  

Throughout 2012, we have called on the approaching Olympic Games for metaphors to help explain the work that we’re doing in South Carolina to become leaders in the transformation of our health care system.

While the Olympian’s goal is to the be the fastest runner or swimmer or to be able to jump the highest or farthest, South Carolina health care providers are aiming to provide the best care possible, create a safer environment for our patients, and be a leader in improving the health of our citizens. We want all of our hospitals to be highly reliable organizations.

Our training to become a system of  highly reliabile organizations focuses on better process design, building a culture of reliability and making it easy for caregivers to do the right thing. Success means improving everything we do.

This year’s TAP Conference includes valuable sessions on how members can become highly reliable organizations. Join us September 13-15 at the Hilton Head Marriott Resort, Hilton Head Island.
