During this informative session, led by Mr. Corder and Dr. Cohn, participants will learn how to:
- Use evidence-based tools and practices to mitigate risk and improve safety
- Code and analyze data sets to improve patient care
- Engage physicians to decrease individual variation to build a culture of safety from the ground up
Mr. Richard Corder
Mr. Corder is Assistant Vice President at CRICO, which insures all Harvard medical faculty and teaching hospitals. They use the world’s largest database of coded malpractice claims to improve safety for patients, providers, practices and hospitals. They compare and analyze cases in a way that allows them to see the signals that lead to unsafe care. Then, they develop best practices, learn from others, and track improvement over time. They lower case rates, costs, premiums, and the rate and severity of injuries. They also decrease error, improve care, and save lives.
