Medical Team Medical Worker

The healthcare team at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center created a daily “safety huddle” across their organization managing safety issues that are electronic health record (EHR)-related. Approximately 40 leadership roles are involved daily in a 20-minute gathering, ranging from CEOs to staff employees. The huddles allow the organization to identify safety issues and to triage their management. The leadership also awarded participants who made “great catches” in identifying issues previously unseen. The American Medical Association has created an educational module about team huddles, also cited in their article.
