August 2017 - Salus Global, the parent company of the MOREOB, AMPROOB, and MOREEX Programs is pleased to announce that they are celebrating their 10th anniversary this summer.
Named after both the Roman goddess of health and prosperity and the Latin word for “health, wellness, prosperity, good wishes and safety”, Salus Global was established in 2007 as a strategic partnership between the Healthcare Insurance Reciprocal of Canada (HIROC) and the Society of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (SOGC).
With a laser sharp focus on patient safety and interprofessional team performance, Salus Global truly represents the shared vision of HIROC, SOGC and its own patient safety mandate.
President and CEO, Malcolm Eade remarked, “In designing MOREOB (Salus Global’s obstetrical patient safety Program), we saw the need for a unique patient safety training program built around continuous quality improvement (CQI). To achieve a culture of safety, safety must be everyone’s responsibility. While MOREOB ‘presents’ as a safety program, it becomes a way of life”.
While obstetrical units (with MOREOB) were the foundation of Salus Global’s work, the principles of High Reliability Organizations are pivotal to improving and sustaining safety culture in interprofessional units, departments and teams in any part of the hospital.
Over the past 10 years, Salus Global’s programs have seen results - shifting existing cultures to ones more focused on patient safety; reducing the incurred costs of claims; and facilitating the accreditation process, to name a few.
