ECRI Institute's 24th Annual Conference

"Workflow, Workarounds and Overworked Health Systems: Innovations and Challenges for Quality, Safety, and Technology”

Changes in workflow for clinicians and health systems can impact and/or be impacted by quality and patient safety initiatives, as well as the use of EHRs. The responses to workflow disruptions are often workarounds, which can usher in either dysfunction or innovation. ECRI Institute's 24th Annual Conference, "Workflow, Workarounds, and Overworked Health Systems: Innovations and Challenges for Quality, Safety, and Technology", explores these interlinked issues in healthcare systems and how they are being addressed.

Hear from some of the most respected leaders in healthcare and discuss with them questions like these:

  • In what ways are public and private sector risk-based payment systems changing workflow and driving workarounds?
  • How are health systems managing new workflow demands from so many quality measurement initiatives?
  • Are EHRs--designed for payment purposes--effectively adapting to enhance efficiency and ensure quality?

This conference enhances the emerging national dialog on practice efficiency and institutional culture and its effects on care. See additional crucial topics by visiting the agenda and list of confirmed speakers.
