New Joint Commission online tool gauges organizations' progress on high-reliability harm reduction

The Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare has launched a new online assessment and resource library to help hospital executives track their organization's progress on reliability and preventable harm reduction. Oro 2.0 provides a detailed questionnaire relating to organizational strategies and performance, after which it generates a report that details strengths and areas for improvement. "High reliability in healthcare is excellence in patient care for every patient, every time," Erin DuPree, M.D., vice president and chief medical officer for the Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare, said in a statement. "With the assessment, it is our goal to engage hospital leaders in the high reliability journey through a consensus-driven process that guides them to a transformative perspective regarding their approach to zero harm and organizational performance."
