Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) is one method hospitals can use to comply with the requirement by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) that they conduct at least one proactive risk assessment of a high-risk process each year.While it is not the only means of satisfying the requirement,Failure Mode Effect Analysis is used to assess the efficacy and efficiency of medical devices.
Why Should You Attend
FMEA is an established and widely used procedure in almost all industries including healthcare. FMEA is not, however, a simple procedure.It is of immense use for the high-risk processes such as programming infusion pumps for intravenous delivery of medications, surgical robots, diagnosing a disease, and performing ER interventions. The entire team has to grasp the fundamentals from start to finish because a cross-functional brainstorming is a requirement.
