DatixWeb is a web-based patient safety software for healthcare risk management applications, delivering safety, risk and governance elements through a variety of integrated software modules. DatixWeb is the first stage in the Datix Quality Improvement Loop, concerned with the capture and review of data. It’s the first step towards improving patient safety and creating a culture of learning.
Datix Cloud IQ is the next step in the future of patient safety. The SaaS based software goes beyond the simple capture and review of data, allowing organisations to go one step further and improve quality improvement processes. As issues are uncovered and improvements are implemented organisational procedures are updated to embed the changes. Organisations have a memory of what works and why. Datix Cloud IQ encompasses the complete Datix Quality Improvement Loop process.
The capture toolkit gathers information that indicates where improvements can be made, showing undesired and unintended outcomes following delivery of care.
Having captured the information around the event itself, you need to understand that event and uncover the contributory factors that led to it. What are the factors that must be controlled in order to avoid a repeat occurrence? The Evaluate toolkit helps you identify underlying causes and recommend changes to overcome them.
Following the submission of recommendations for improvement, you need to implement a strategy to achieve those improvements. You need to know which controls must be put in place and which will offer the best ROI? The Strategy toolkit helps focus resources to deliver the most effective results.
At this stage, learning is embedded into your organisation’s memory. Activity management ensures that change is put in place and incorporated into procedures and processes. The Implement toolkit allows best practice to be implemented and Your organisation will know what works and why.
Once change has been introduced, you need to know it’s working. A programme of assessment will answer this, leading to further insights that can be passed back to the Strategy toolkit in the form of new recommendations for improvement. The Assess toolkit closes the loop of continuous improvement.
