Achieve and sustain organizational excellence

High reliability organizations (HROs) operate in highly complex and risk-prone environments for extended periods without causing harm or experiencing catastrophic events. These organizations effectively transform cultures, implement systems and empower their workforces -- they are geared to anticipate and rectify events that could result in patient harm, such as a fall or a wrong-site surgery.

In a high reliability healthcare organization the workforce becomes more mindful of risks and systems become more reliable, resulting in diminishing harm and improving clinical outcomes, as well as the experience of patients and families. Applying HRO principles also increases your organization's ability to effectively perform in value-based agreements.

To guide members' transformations to high reliability organizations in healthcare, Vizient and industry-leading HRO company Safe & Reliable Healthcare offer an integrated solution. Our HRO solution includes expertise grounded in HRO principles, management systems, technology and analytics. We further elevate the analytical capabilities of both companies by integrating Vizient’s robust clinical data with Safe & Reliable’s culture of safety and employee engagement data. Vizient is prepared to partner with members for a successful HRO journey.
