The Healthcare Insurance Reciprocal of Canada (HIROC), the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC), and the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA) are proud to announce a new collaboration to improve the safety of obstetrical and perinatal care in Canada. As part of this collaboration, HIROC, SOGC, and the CMPA will
share equal ownership of Salus Global, a world leader in obstetrical and perinatal safety programs.
Salus Global helps healthcare organizations and interdisciplinary teams improve teamwork and communication to achieve better clinical, operational, and economic outcomes. Its flagship MOREOB program has been delivered in over 300 North American hospitals and has been proven to enhance the safety of care and reduce adverse events.
This new partnership is rooted in a shared commitment to advance the safety of obstetrical and perinatal care in Canada, and will provide healthcare teams with greater awareness and encourage greater access to the MOREOB program.
“We are thrilled to build on years of collaborative efforts to improve the safety of care in Canada and join forces with HIROC and SOGC as a partner in Salus Global,” says Dr. Hartley Stern, Executive Director and CEO of the CMPA. “As Canada’s largest physician organization with over 100,000 members, the introduction of the CMPA will strengthen the reach of the partnership and enable the MOREOB program to have an even greater impact on interprofessional hospital teams across the country.”
“Individually, we have years of data, experience, and insight in obstetrical and perinatal care,” says HIROC CEO, Catherine Gaulton. “Combined, this information gives us a deep understanding of the issues contributing to adverse events and negative outcomes, and the strategies proven to reduce these events.”
“Together, we are greater than the sum of our parts,” says Dr. Jennifer Blake, CEO of SOGC. “Ultimately, our collaboration will help improve the safety of care for mothers and newborns across the country.”
Salus Global President and CEO, Malcolm Eade adds, “The CMPA’s investment in our organization further validates the value, impact, and importance of the
MOREOB program on our healthcare facilities and professionals, and their patients. We look forward to collaborating with our partners to improve life.”
