The Access Risk Knowledge (ARK) project is a commercialisation project to create a new spin-out company that will deliver the novel ARK risk governance software platform to organisations vulnerable to operational failure. The ARK platform will deliver evidence-based risk management capabilities to operational, project and strategic levels within organisations. The project will develop the ARK risk governance platform, using a common analytic framework that provides the basis for the following:
This will make it possible to develop evidence-based best practice that supports performance-based regulation and will ultimately provide an operational basis for future system design. The ARK solution transforms risk management from quantifying loss to proactive governance, assuring reliable transactional value from operations, ensuring this is sustainable across the enterprise, potentially massively enhancing value through effective future system innovation.
The ARK-Virus Project extends the ARK Platform for use in the healthcare domain - specifically for the risk governance of personal protective equipment (PPE) use for infection prevention and control (IPC) during the COVID-19 pandemic. The project is a collaboration between the ARK academic team and a community of practice (CoP) which includes safety staff in St. James’s Hospital, Beacon Renal, and Dublin Fire Brigade.
