Managing Clinical Risks

Kayur Patel, MD, FACP, FACPE, FACHE, FACEP
(0.5 CME)

The threat of litigation following a misdiagnosis or improper treatment in high-risk medical conditions presents a challenge to healthcare providers.

In a continuously moving healthcare industry, with the pendulum swinging or the dynamics changing, we are in a constant flux of information that we can use, misuse, overuse or underuse; and by better understanding where our risks lie, we may be able to unfold some of these risks before they actually occur, delivering high-quality care. No time is better than today to use a multidisciplinary approach to risk management.

COVID-19 Project Manager, VirtualClinic.MD
DNA Detective, The Code Of YOU!

 

For nearly three decades Deniece has focused her attention and initiatives on empowering and developing individuals. This passion goes back to one of her first jobs while in college when she was involved in training new employees. Once she embarked on her entrepreneurial path, she provided leadership development to her corporate clients; and most recently to individual Epigenetic Human Performance Coaching to empower individuals in their own health journey by discovering and understanding their unique genetic and epigenetic code – The Code Of YOU!

When faced with the current Pandemic, she continued her push for being as healthy as possible to fight this foreign invader just like every other. This journey led her to take on the opportunity as “COVID-19 Project Manager” for a national company, Virtual Clinic, where she now uses her lifetime of skills to support and educate Clinicians in various COVID tests while also developing a full turn-key end-to-end solution for the ever-changing COVID testing mandates in schools and workplaces.

Deniece’s foundational belief is from a local respected businessman who said “Tell me all the reasons we CAN” as well as the core belief that information empowers and empowerment leads to health.
