REGISTER HERE: Promoting Professional Accountability and a Culture of Safety and Respect

Add Event to My Calendar
What can leaders do when a clinician models behaviors and performance that undermine attempts to create a safe and reliable health system? Addressing this challenge requires the right people, process and technology to promote early identification and interventions delivered by peer professionals. The Vanderbilt Center for Patient and Professional Advocacy has been engaged for the past 25 years in research and support of hundreds of hospitals and groups internationally in developing reliable and successful approaches to address the small percentage of clinicians who model disrespect toward patients, families and fellow medical team members.

Add Event to My Calendar

The Wisconsin Hospital Association Information Center (WHAIC) and the WHA Quality Improvement and Performance Team have partnered to bring you a “FREE” full-day conference of stimulating and interactive topics to breathe new life into your discharge data submissions, and the important role quality departments play on data outputs.

Wisconsin Hospital Association President and CEO Eric Borgerding will open the morning with an update on the current state of healthcare in Wisconsin.

Our goal with this year’s conference is to engage staff from all hospitals and ASCs in learning opportunities and interactive sessions, including: WIpop discharge data submissions; the role coders play in quality data by adding “Z” Codes; gain a better understanding of data analytics and tools offered, AND changes taking place for those that complete the multiple hospital surveys (Annual, Fiscal, Personnel, MCR, etc.)
