Clearwater Compliance CEO Bob Chaput Co-Authors Chapter in Authoritative Book on Hospital Risk Management

American Society of Healthcare Risk Management Publishes New Book to Address Enterprise Risk Management in Healthcare

October 23, 2017

NASHVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Clearwater Compliance CEO Bob Chaput, a recognized leader in the field of cyber risk management is co-author of a chapter in the recently released book titled Health Care Risk Management Fundamentals published by the American Society of Healthcare Risk Management (ASHRM).

This comprehensive book is an authoritative insider’s perspective on best practices for hospital risk management, providing a complete introduction to risk management in healthcare and addressing today’s greatest challenges to patient safety. Chaput was part of a national team of experienced healthcare risk management professionals who worked together to create this publication.

Chaput’s chapter, “Technology and Data in Healthcare,” presents an innovative and judicious approach to the intersection of patient care and technology as more patient care is moving out of traditional healthcare settings and into the home and workplace. It provides timely, tangible, and specific actions that risk managers can take to improve their information and technology risk management posture. Included is background on the digitized healthcare ecosystem in systems, devices and applications.

“Compliance and cyber risks are inextricably linked to reputation risks, financial risks, legal risks, operational and clinical/patient safety risks,” said Chaput, CEO of Clearwater Compliance. “Hospital risk managers have an opportunity help their organizations evolve from treating these new information and technology risks as compliance risks or IT issues.”

The book was released October 15-18 at the ASHRM annual conference in Seattle, Washington. It is intended for hospital risk managers, CIOs and CISOs interested in better understanding the need for and implementation of a comprehensive risk management process and approach that encompasses the entire organization. It will also be of particular relevance to a broader academic audience as a comprehensive textbook, providing a complete introduction to risk management in healthcare.

Chaput, CEO of Clearwater Compliance, is nationally recognized for his educational webinars, industry seminars, article contributions and media appearances that have shown many c-suite executives how traditional approaches to patient safety and information security may not be aligned with the current threat environment, which can lead to gaps in how patient safety and medical data are protected.
