This podcast is part of our HRO and Healthcare focus. The episode features Sheeva Azma, founder of Fancy Comma and a freelance science, technology, health, policy, and business journalist. Her investigative journalism introduced her to High Reliability Organizing and how it can help overcome bias, racism, and burnout in healthcare workers.
Sheeva's research highlights the impact of Covid and Long Covid on patients, doctor's decisions, and burnout amongst health care staff. Improving and planning against this impact, HRO can help organizations make changes to their cultures to reduce the impact and improve the work environment.
Sheeva also has a relationship with the Patient Safety Movement Foundation. This organization is focused on patient safety in a variety of healthcare settings and situations. Like Sheeva the Patient Safety Foundation is committed to Zero Harm.
