High Reliability Organizing Can Prove Successful for Anesthesia, Beyond

Share on Facebook
Anesthesiologists can bring increased safety to the broader healthcare system through high reliability organizing, according to an Anesthesia Business Consultants' blog post.

Here are five characteristics of HRO.

1. Preoccupied with failure — constantly looking for signals that failure is coming so strong responses can be taken.

2. Reluctance to simplify — resisting temptation to simplify to the point that meaningful details get lost.

3. Sensitivity to operations — pay attention to the work that is being done as it happens, not how it is expected.

4. Commitment to resilience — all systems will have failures, but handling errors requires training and forethought.

5. Deference to expertise — rely on the person with the more relevant knowledge of a situation rather than the most experienced or senior person who lacks knowledge.
