TIPS Prevention Platform for Healthcare
With nation-wide changes to healthcare policy, budget concerns and spending reductions for healthcare, leading health care organizations are proactively seeking better ways to do more with less and searching for better tools to deliver more value to their customers, their employees and their board members, while improving profitability and accountability.
TIPS Prevention Platform is an innovative platform of web-based tools designed to empower healthcare employees and patients to confidentially and anonymously report potentially harmful safety concerns, including: weapons, drug/alcohol use, harassment or intimidation, vandalism, physical/sexual assaults, threats of violence, suicide risk, abuse and others. Once reports are made, TIPS Prevention Platform provides a central and secure system for administrators (mental health, law enforcement, etc.) to proactively investigate the concern, objectively assess the situation, track and document all actions taken and monitor individuals with ongoing follow-ups and reminders.
TIPS Prevention Platform is a comprehensive risk mitigation and threat mitigation tool for Threat Assessment Teams (TATs), organizations, and communities that ensures all incident reports and observed pre-incident indicators can get to the right people in the right places at the right time with the right documentation so people can do the right things…right now!
TIPS Prevention Platform allows organizations to prevent incidents, avoid escalation of events, track trends, reduce liability, and save lives. Don’t wait until the next safety incident or privacy breach; TIPS can help your administration become more aware of concerns now and ensure a safe and secure environment for all staff and patients.
Recent lessons learned and fines issued for compliance failures and security breaches are all opportunities for your institution to proactively prepare and prevent situations from happening. Review Awareity’s Healthcare Resource Library for more information.
A survey of TIPS administrators revealed over 90% of incidents reported through the platform are able to be effectively investigated and resolved in a timely manner. Hear from some of our leading organizations and learn from their experiences with TIPS.
CYA and PREVENTION
Does your organization have a documented, proactive crisis communications and disaster recovery plan and trained resources? Do you need better ways to keep up with mounting regulations and documentation requirements (HIPAA, FERPA, PCI-DSS, FISMA, ISO-27001)? Upon an auditor’s request, does your organization have documentation of all internal controls, policies, procedures and plans with respect to your regulatory obligations? Have all employees, contractors and temporary employees acknowledged acceptable usage, employment, discrimination, harassment and other human resources obligations to help prevent law suits and fines? Does your organization have a confidential online reporting system so employees can quickly and easily report workplace violence, suspicious incidents, threats and risks?
