FEATURED WHITE PAPER

Is the Answer to Enhanced Patient Safety Hiding in Plain Sight?
The Transformation of “Incident Reporting"

Is the Answer to Enhanced Patient Safety Hiding in Plain Sight? The Transformation of “Incident ReportingWe all have these systems, whether paper or electronic, that are supposed to capture incidents that can lead to and/or have resulted in patient harm. Most of these systems can do this, but many will agree that there is something missing – something important – when it comes to whether or not these systems actually enhance patient safety.

We cannot just track incidents anymore; we need to make this an organization-wide process where we build awareness, which leads to intervention, and results in changes that can be seen and monitored. In this white paper, we discuss the transformation of traditional “incident reporting” into an integrated patient safety management system and offer a path to achieve this transformation.
