Healthcare's Urgent question

How do we solve the Patient Safety Crisis?

Facing The problem

We live in a global epidemic of patient harm. As healthcare professionals and executives we have often seen well-intentioned transformation efforts fail without success, leading to deep cynicism among healthcare providers and patients, leaving the client not much better off than they were.  too many big-name consulting firms swoop in with glossy reports, charge a lot of money, lead to deep cynicism among healthcare providers, and leave the client not much better off than they were. Jbara was started in July 2009 by Julie Johnson and Paul Barach (hence the company’s name, Jbara), as a way to formalize their ideas about what healthcare consulting services could be.  Paul and Julie’s vision was to create something that focused on building a meaningful relationship with the client that focused on shared values of improving healthcare quality, patient safety, and the experience of patients and the care team.

Addressing an Urgent Need

Fast forward to today, after a multitude of successful projects, we feel that there remains a deep and growing need to provide authentic support and advice to those who seek radical redesign of clinical services from community based, primary prevention to complex tertiary hospital care. Our extensive academic teaching, research, and implementation of service lines in the private, military, and public sectors have been devoted to developing, leading, and supporting quality improvement, patient safety and health systems strengthening. We have worked in 5 continents and advised dozens of the best healthcare organizations. We understand the real challenges involved in creating ethical leadership, changing work flow patterns, and sustaining reliable cultures in complex large organizations.

In Search of Excellence

We have worked with and learned from amazing and inspiring colleagues from around the world and we are delighted they agreed to join Jbara as our Associates to bring their wisdom to our partners. The Jbara team has had careers that has taken them to the best healthcare systems around the world in our efforts to learn about the most effective training, leadership, operations and cultural lessons. Our team has distilled the essential elements that lead to success and that can be used as a foundation to help you build upon success.
