This toolkit from the Institute from Healthcare Improvement (IHI) equips patient safety and finance leaders with tools and a collaborative approach to make a compelling business case for organizational investments to advance patient and workforce safety initiatives.
Patient and workforce safety should be a core value of health care organisations, but given limited resources, investments in safety must be weighed against other priorities. Collaboration of safety and financial leaders is essential to creating and presenting a solid business case for safety work.
This toolkit includes specific recommendations and practices for safety and finance leaders to develop a business case for safety, and provides a framework for advancing patient and workforce safety.
- The main document offers guidelines to assess organizational readiness for a safety initiative, gather information and data, draft a business case for the work, and deliver a presentation to decision makers.
- Associated tools and templates are included to help organize and present the work.
