|Event Date/Time: Mar 16, 2005|
The New England Complex Systems Institute
Mastering complexity saves lives in healthcare. Learn practical steps to improve efficiency and quality while preventing errors. This program is a unique opportunity to learn how to master complexity in your organization from the New England Complex Systems Institute, the leader in applying complex systems understanding to healthcare.
From a past participant: "This was one of those moments of extreme illumination _ a lot of science behind some intuitive concepts. Really valuable and fun."
LEARN HOW TO:
Create effective teams.
Improve rapidly without disruption.
Reduce costs by applying efficiency where it can help.
Prevent errors by improving communication and cooperation.
Medical care today depends on the interactions between many different individuals and parts of the healthcare system. Knowledge of complexity is central to improving the quality and safety of care. Medical errors arise because of system failures‹ineffective communication and collaboration between care providers. The scientific study of complexity provides immediate insight into improving the system of care. This program will introduce you to complexity science and show you how to apply it in your healthcare organization.
