ASCO SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT and Chief Medical Officer, Richard L. Schilsky, MD, FACP, FASCO, FSCT, will participate in a panel discussion at the ECRI Annual Conference "Workflow, Workarounds, and Overworked Health Systems: Innovations and Challenges for Quality, Safety, and Technology," on  November 28 at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. 

Dr. Schilsky’s session, “When Workarounds Are the Norm in Clinical Care,” will examine important questions surrounding workarounds such as: 

  • Do workarounds lead to better care and innovation, or are they symptoms of dysfunction and disarray?
  • How do workarounds affect safety, as well as work burden and costs?
  • Can the use of simulation exercises help bridge the gaps that arise between standardized care and on the ground exigencies of patient care? 

During the session, Dr. Schilsky will be joined by Steven J. Stack, MD, an emergency medicine physician and Past President of the American Medical Association, and Ellen S. Deutsch, MD, MS, Medical Director of the Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority and ECRI Institute and Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine. ■

The annual conference enhances the emerging national dialogue on practice efficiency and institutional culture and its effects on care. This year’s conference focuses on changes in workflow for clinicians, health systems, and patients as an increasingly significant issue in the delivery of care.
