Why study this program?
Healthcare industry is more vulnerable to the incidents of mistakes and errors, than any other industry and these mistakes can pretty much cost patients their lives. So it is essential to stay current on developments in risk management practices, regulations and technologies.
Healthcare risk management is the exercise of determining and protecting against possible risks / threats within a healthcare setting. Identification of possible risks within a healthcare organization is the first step in Healthcare Risk Management. Then the risks are evaluated and ways and means to minimize the possibility of their occurrence, and strategies to handle them are developed. Healthcare Risk Management enables healthcare service providers to assess their organizational healthcare policies and processes, outcomes, patient perception and company structure and/or techniques involved in the capability to offer effective, safe, efficient, patient-oriented, reasonable and prompt care.

Hospitals spend hundreds and thousands of dollars annually on insurance and medical malpractice or negligence claims. Hence, healthcare facilities often employ health care risk managers to reduce the error rates, accidents and other adverse events. In addition to large multi-speciality hospitals, nursing homes, mental health institutions, small clinics and rehabilitation centers also hire health care risk managers. Experienced healthcare risk professionals can also work as freelance risk management consultants.
The goal of all risk management strategies in the healthcare industry is to lower the chance of occurrence of any risks and losses. There are four main areas of focus for risk management professionals: identifying possible risks, calculate the chances of an adverse impact, calculate and comprehend the size of the adverse impact and develop strategies to control the risk. In the case of medicine, risk management techniques aim to provide a more professional level of medical care and minimize the ratio of medical malpractice claim.
