2. Early Warning Systems in Risk Management

Chapter 6 of the Carroll (2009) textbook includes discussions on early warning systems that should be used to minimize risk. The chapter focuses on national organizations along with various state laws and examples of how such systems have impacted and reduced risk for many different health care organizations.

Investigate early warning systems in risk management. Pick a specific health care organization type (for example, hospital, emergency department, physician’s office, laboratory, dental office, health plan, et cetera). Describe at least two elements that would be needed for an effective early warning system for this specific health care organization.
