A day-long preconference workshop at HIMSS14 on February 23 will highlight efforts in the health care industry to identify and prevent errors related to use of health information technology.

The conference officially starts on Monday, Feb. 24, but Sunday is filled with a variety of half-and full-day special programs. ECRI Institute, a patient safety organization, will host “Patient Safety--Making Healthcare Safer: Health IT Challenges and Solutions,” from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

A number of safety leaders at ECRI will present sessions, as well as leaders from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology and the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation, and such thought leaders as David Classen, M.D., and Dean Sittig, PhD.

Covered topics include applying safety science to I.T., strategizing for safety surveillance and response programs, incorporating safety risk management into processes and culture, applying human factors principles and usability into electronic health records implementation, embedding safety solutions in integration and inoperability initiatives, and future directions for patient safety.
