Risk Management in the Health Sector
We understand the provision of healthcare is a critical and dynamic undertaking. Expert risk management is essential to optimise the overall service delivery by providing a framework for managing risks, threats and other challenging factors inherent to the sector. Such factors can include:
- Multiple stakeholders and funding streams
- Services that are inherently difficult to measure
- Technical complexities
- Short and long term demand uncertainties
- Rapidly evolving practices
- Complex human factors
- Patient safety
