Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Socio-Technical Probabilistic Risk Assessment (ST-PRA) System for Ambulatory Surgical Centers

This system employs a systematic methodology that proactively identifies major risk points. The system involves a detailed “deductive” process analysis method that utilizes logical relationships and probability theory to construct a model (“fault tree”) of how the various risk points interact with one another and how risk points, individually or collectively, combine to contribute to the overall adverse outcome.
