Newton, MA (PRWEB) September 14, 2006
EH&E, a leading provider of health & safety and engineering consulting services, will sponsor a free webinar entitled “A New Concept in Environment of Care Compliance Program Support.” The featured speaker for this event is the Director of Environmental Affairs at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Massachusetts.
In January of 2006, the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) implemented its new policy of unannounced inspections. This policy clearly puts added pressure on healthcare institutions to strengthen their programs and processes to ensure they are always ready for a compliance audit.
The wide range of areas covered by the Environment of Care (EC) standards represents one of the most difficult compliance challenges for healthcare institutions, considering the multidisciplinary input required and the extensive data collection and reporting requirements.
The speaker will outline the process he and his colleagues at EH&E used to identify potential weaknesses in EC programs that might be barriers to maintaining continuous compliance. He’ll then review tested solutions to these issues, including a demonstration of a cost-effective and user-friendly system to ensure continuous compliance.
This on-line event will focus on some of the key issues faced by EC groups including:
Providing instant access to program documents and data. Managing program continuity during organizational changes. Gathering and managing program metrics efficiently (e. g., Hazard Surveillance Rounds).
