The healthcare industry is prone to mistakes which have the potential to cost patient lives and place the healthcare service providers at financial risk, operational risk, security risk, among many others. It is absolutely vital to be constantly up to date with the various advances in risk management practices, law and technology.

When it comes to healthcare risk management, it should be known that this practice is centered on identifying and preventing various hazards within a healthcare environment. Identification of risks is the first required step in healthcare risk management. After the case is assessed, some risk minimizing methods are developed. This task is of great help to healthcare providers, who would like to quantify healthcare processes, outcomes, patient perception and organizational structure. This applies to all systems connected to the ability to provide effective, safe and efficient care.

Risk management is a practical way of managing uncertainty related to a threat, by means of a series of human activities such as: assessment of possible risks, development of methods and mechanisms to manage them, and minimizing risks using managerial resources. Some possible mechanisms to achieve this include transferring the risk to another party, avoiding the risk, minimizing the negative effect of the risk, and accepting a portion or all of the consequences of a particular risk.
