In May 2016, a study from John Hopkins revealed that about 250,000 deaths in the United States were due to medical errors – this makes medical errors the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States, after heart disease and cancer.
How does this happen? We don’t lack resources, we have some of the best surgical procedures in the world, the best medications, the world’s best imaging techniques, etc. Join Kayur V. Patel, M.D., who’s spoken nationally and to several bar associations, about how medical errors can happen, and how to understand hospital workflows so you can identify potential failure points in hospital procedures for any case.
At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:
1. Have insights into how hospitals are organized, and work processes are designed and controlled.
2. Identify critical decision-making point in every case.
3. Identify where 80% of systemic gaps in care occurs.
