Benchmarking the SPHM program

Jul 11, 2018 2pm Eastern
Presented by: Esther Murray, RN, MSN, COHNs, CSPHP

SPHM success can be measured in many different ways. The program champions first get into the SPHM process to change injuries to caregivers, but, there are other more valuable outcomes that can be changed with mobilizing patients safely. Those benchmarks can assist in building a preventative program with “Leading indicators” or just echo worker’s comp info “Lagging indicators”.  What are the metrics that your facility is desiring to change?  Beyond worker’s comp metrics, how can you measure the program in other indicators such as leading and lagging indicators?  What would be the methods of documentation for those metrics?  Developing the benchmarks assist the program committee in designing an ongoing auditing and compliance package.

Safe Patient Handling and Mobility Awareness Week

Safe Patient Handling and Mobility Awareness Week

Safe Patient Handling and Mobility Awareness Week April 16 – 20, 2018
Injuries caused by manually lifting and repositioning patients result in lost work time, wages or careers for nursing staff, emergency responders and other healthcare workers. At the annual Safe Patient Handling and Mobility Conference in Orlando, FL., April 16-20, 2018, all stakeholders will meet to continue efforts to reduce these injuries. In recognition of this vital conference, Orlando’s Mayor Buddy Dyer proclaimed April 16-20, 2018 “Safe Patient Handling and Mobility Awareness Week.” It is hoped this proclamation fosters support for the reduction of manual handling in all healthcare environments, increasing safety for caregivers and patients. Join us to show your commitment to safe patient handling.

AON Benchmarking Survey

AON Benchmarking Survey

ASPHP would like to share the Aon Health Care Workers Compensation Barometer Analysis with you. This survey is conducted by the Actuarial and Analytics Practice of Aon Global Risk Consulting. This is the 4th edition of the report and will be published in Q3 of 2018.

NEW THIS YEAR: In addition to collecting information on Workers Compensation (WC), they are aiming to also collect Employment Practices Liability (EPL) information. At a minimum, you must supply WC information to participate in this year’s barometer. Not submitting EPL information does not bar you from participation.

  • Who can participate in this study? This is open to Aon and Non-Aon Clients.  They are looking for any health care system that commercially or self-insure their WC and EPL costs, including hospitals, physician groups, and long term care facilities. For those that participate, information is aggregated and confidential.
  • There is NO COST to participate. Participants will be emailed a copy of the report when it is completed.
  • They are collecting BASIC HISTORICAL INFORMATION in the form: claim detail, i.e., loss runs, and exposure. “Submission Instructions” contains specific details on the loss fields and exposure information we are looking to collect on WC and EPL.
  • SURVEY is easy to complete. The survey contains some basic risk management questions.  Contact information is required; however, remaining questions are optional.

Please use the buttons below to download the documents. Return this survey to no later than Friday, May 18, 2018.

This benchmarking efforts are only as powerful as the data we can collect from willing participants like yourselves.  We appreciate your constant support of AGRC Actuarial and Analytics Health Care Practice’s benchmarking research, as well as, your time and willingness to participate and continue to make these efforts successful and valuable to the industry.

If you are an Aon Client, please reach out to your Aon contact to assist you in supplying the required data to their team.

Journey towards a National Coding Standard for Patient Handling Injuries

The webinar provides insight into the journey and development of a national standard for Patient Handling Injury coding.  The standardized coding once implemented universally, will provide a mechanism to measure and benchmark injuries and fully support further prevention and research.
