As a total healthcare risk-quality-safety company, we at Clarity believe strongly in the power of learning to foster awareness that can drive changes that directly impact patient safety. As part of our unending commitment to enhancing patient safety, we regularly publish white papers on topics that impact all phases of healthcare.

Welcome to Part 3 of 3 in a series of White Papers exploring the role of Culture in Safety Outcomes. In this final white paper, we look at how understanding high reliability organizations (HROs), change, and human behavior can help drive effective cultures of safety. Adapting characteristics of HROs to healthcare settings and carefully choosing change strategies will not only help drive improvements within an organization, but also nurture a safe culture.
