The Value of Incident Reporting

The use of incident reporting systems is now widely perceived to improve patient safety and increased reporting has been shown to positively correlate with independently defined measures of safety culture. Drawing upon experience in high-risk industries such as aviation, healthcare organisations need to put in place and encourage the use of incident reporting systems to enable learning from adverse events and to mitigate against future errors.

Increases in incident reporting are so important to the future of patient safety. Increased reporting will enable more efficient identification of areas for improvement and training required, helping to embed changes for improvement in organisations. Datix is working to transform the traditional role of incident data, turning it into actionable information that organisations can use to implement new strategies and create safer environments. Organisations and the wider healthcare industry will ultimately be able to predict and mitigate future risks.
