A High Reliability Organization (HRO) is an organization with predictable and repeatable systems in place that allow for the consistent execution of operations while catching and correcting potentially catastrophic errors.
In healthcare specifically, HRO is a term that has come to represent the elimination of unwarranted variation in the delivery of care – thereby increasing levels of patient safety while improving clinical results and reducing costs. The term “high reliability” describes an organizational culture that strives to achieve error-free performance and safety in every procedure, every time. Even when operating in complex, high-risk, or hazardous environments, high reliability organizations (HROs) sustain a nearly unblemished safety record over many years.
In this webinar, we discuss high reliability as it pertains to healthcare and how healthcare organizations can start their journey towards high reliability and a culture of zero harm.
