2019 National Patient Safety Goals is now live!

In keeping up with your hospital credentialing needs, we have updated our National Patient Safety Goals course in accordance with the requirements set by the Joint Commission. Each year, these safety goals are updated to help provide the highest standard of care for all patients. Each goal provides a rationale, for its basis of development, and elements of performance to address the best practices to achieve this goal. Here is a look at some of the learning objectives for this year:

  • Describe the appropriate patient identifiers for use within each health care setting, for the purpose of minimizing or eliminating medication and transfusion errors.
  • Describe procedures to correctly label medications to maximize patient safety, and prevent patient harm from incorrect, redundant, or unnecessary prescriptions through patient-record reconciliation.
  • Identify and address inherent safety risks in patient populations in psychiatric hospitals.
  • Introduce the Universal Protocol for Wrong Site, Wrong Procedure, Wrong Person Surgical and describe mandated pre-procedure processes their prevention.

Premium Credentialing Coming to Learn-Wise

In the near future, Learn-Wise will be adding a new feature called Premium Credentialing, which will expand upon Learn-Wise’s current Sales Rep Credentialing. With Premium Credentialing, reps can upload and access their medical documents required for hospital entry, (Hep-B Certification, etc.), and receive reminders to re-take their courses, or replace expired personal documentation.

If you are interested, feel free to contact your Account Manager to set up a demo of the Premium Credentialing feature.
