Intensive Care Investor Checklist (ICIC)
This Investor checklist is modeled after the WHO (World Health Organization) safe surgery checklist created in 2008 by Dr. Atul Gawande, endocrine surgeon at the Brigam and Women’s hospital in Boston, staff writer for the New Yorker and associate professor at Harvard Medical school in collaboration with a group of international medical professionals.
Eight hospitals around the world participated in a 3 month experiment. A 19 item checklist including 7 items pre-anesthesia, 7 items pre-incision and 5 items before exiting the operating room were reviewed by the surgical teams. The results showed the rate of major complications from surgery fell by 36%. The need for repeat procedures due to bleeding or other complications fell by 25%. Infections fell by almost 50%. Deaths fell by 47%.
Your financial life is at risk your entire life. A checklist is fast, clear, and provokes action. This list is for the financial advisor and the client who must operate as a team.
