The Ambulatory Safety Net (ASN) Collaborative
The ASN collaborative meets quarterly as a full group, with a monthly check-in call allowing the opportunity for questions and concerns to be raised quickly and efficiently in a supportive manner. In addition, there is an online community and virtual events to increase learning.
Establishment of a CRICO-wide Ambulatory Safety Net based on specific approach, standards and measures, ensures that:
- Safety improves for the whole Harvard medical community
- Long-term sustainability is prioritized
- Implementation best practices are shared
- Metrics are shared
- Barriers and methods to overcome are shared
CRICO plans to broadly share the tools, processes, and lessons learned as we proceed through this work over the next three years. Ultimately, we believe this model could be adopted to help a significant number of hospital systems across the country.
