Booz Allen was founded on the notion that we could help companies succeed by bringing them expert, candid advice and an outside perspective on their business. The analysis and perspective generated by that talent can be found in the case studies and thought leadership produced by our people.
We've come a long way delivering innovative solutions. But our next chapter is still being written.
Our 22,600 engineers, scientists, software developers, technologists, and consultants live to solve problems that matter. We’re proud of the diversity throughout our organization, from our most junior ranks to our board of directors and leadership team.
Military treatment facilities (MTFs) around the globe are committed to reducing preventable harm to patients—the ultimate goal of high-reliability health care. Becoming a high-reliability organization (HRO) requires an exceptional degree of safety, on the order of organizations that operate in high-risk environments, like commercial aviation and nuclear power.
And although the military health system has aggressively taken on this transformational HRO challenge, the path forward for any individual treatment facility is far from clear.
The Department of Defense (DoD) has embraced the Joint Commission’s framework for becoming a health care HRO, with its three domains of change: leadership commitment, a culture of safety, and continuous process improvement. However, the framework is really just a starting point. It does not provide clear-cut methods, with built-in measures and metrics, nor does it detail the specific tools and techniques that are needed to attain HRO goals.
“Booz Allen's diagnostic approach follows the same basic principles as a physician’s. Various treatment alternatives are determined, options are discussed, and a path forward is selected.”
