Last year, the Veteran’s Administration (VA) began its journey to become a High-Reliability Organization or HRO. Nuclear power and aviation are examples of industries that have applied HRO principles to achieve minimal errors, despite highly hazardous and unpredictable conditions.
Today we are speaking with Dr. Himanshu Singh, the Chief Health Informatics Officer at DSS, Inc., more about this topic. Dr. Singh will discuss how, thanks to intelligent software and data visualization solutions, it is possible for the VA to achieve the HRO mission, and provide the best quality of care for Veterans.
