eSafety Series

Ensuring the Safety of our eHealth Systems and Programs

A Joint COACH and NIHI Program

Patient safety has become a major concern in health care. Key Institute of Medicine and Canadian reports starting as early as 1999, underscore the importance of being safety conscious and proactive in identifying safety risks in healthcare. Today’s eHealth systems are increasingly important in enabling improvements in patient safety, but they can also inadvertently introduce new risks into the healthcare environment.

This online program introduces the COACH eSafety Guidelines: a comprehensive resource for health information professionals and others with a responsibility to ensure that eHealth systems are built and operated in a manner that reduces the risk to patient safety. The Guidelines provide a sound basis for implementing an eSafety Management Program including the assessment of risks using the eHealth Safety Case.

Format: Live, interactive, online using Adobe Connect technology.
Sessions: 2 sessions. Each 1.5 hours.

Session 1: Introduction to eSafety & the eSafety Management Program
This session will provide a foundation for understanding the issues and opportunities for addressing safety issues in eHealth systems and cover the main steps in setting up an eSafety management program .

Session 2: The eSafety Case
