Quality Symposium coming up

Hello All,
I'm looking forward to attending FAHC's quality symposium on Friday. I am sharing the details below for others who may be interested.


James M. Jeffords Institute for Quality and Operational Effectiveness


Engineering Risk Out of Health Care: The Journey to High Reliability

September 6, 2013
Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center, South Burlington, VT


We are pleased to present the fifth annual Quality Symposium, sponsored by the James M. Jeffords Institute for Quality and Operational Effectiveness at Fletcher Allen Health Care in partnership with the University of Vermont. This year’s program will explore the concept of high reliability in health care and will offer strategies aimed at improving patient safety and quality.


  1. Introduce the concept of “high reliability” and “ultrasafe” in health care.
  2. Discuss the strategies and tools for enhancing team communication.
  3. Learn how simulation is used to optimize processes and redesign systems to increase patient safety, enhance outcomes and achieve reliable health care delivery.
  4. Share the learning experiences associated with optimizing re-engineering principles.

Who Should Attend

This conference is designed for health care providers, hospital and other health care administrators, quality improvement and patient safety professionals, government personnel involved in health care system oversight, and members of the community interested in creating high-reliability health care organizations.
