Crowe | 1 CPE | Clinical audit: Your prescription for reducing adverse events

As healthcare continues to evolve, so does the need for clinical internal audits. With recent estimates of adverse events occurring in 24% of admissions, according to a study published in the Jan. 12, 2023, New England Journal of Medicine, audit teams have a pressing need for qualified clinicians. Join us for an insightful webinar where we delve into adverse event trends, exploring the current landscape and offering guidance for the future.

As a result of attending this webinar, you should be able to:

  • Identify healthcare internal audit trends and challenges. expanding healthcare internal audit plans to incorporate clinical risk, including nurses and other healthcare professionals in the audit process, and partnering with clinicians to help internal audit break down organizational silos that might be putting patients at risk.
  • Outline the importance of patient safety audits. Recognize the value of auditing clinical processes to help mitigate the risks of never events, adverse events, and hospital-acquired conditions as well as their impact on patient outcomes, safety, and the organization as a whole.
  • Decode coding. Explain how to use relevant data, such as Patient Safety Indicators and National Healthcare Safety Network information, to guide planning discussions for focused audits.

In addition, we will talk about some recent trends in clinical audits along with steps to plan your projects, common findings and pitfalls, and potential solutions that might help your organization.

Patient safety is a core tenet of healthcare and a key part of many systems’ mission statements. However, it is a prominent gap in many healthcare internal audit, operational improvement, and compliance work plans. The right assessment approach can help improve patient outcomes and streamline operations.
