When searching for an effective incident reporting software for your healthcare organization, you want to make sure you choose one that is flexible and customizable enough to allow your staff to focus on what they do best: delivering safe, high-quality care.
Most healthcare organizations, while searching for a new incident reporting software, overlook some key components that can not only decrease long term patient stays, but can decrease costs, as well. Check out the following tips on what to look for in an effective incident reporting software:
- A Comprehensive, Enterprise-wide Solution.
You want to look for a software that is dynamic enough to easily capture all incidents and adverse events while also supporting the comprehensive follow-up process necessary for a high performance health organization. This includes the ability to analyze data and trends over time to prevent incidents from occurring in the future. A strong incident and event reporting software is a software that all departments can easily use, from risk management to compliance to patient safety.
- A Focus on Outcomes. When choosing an effective incident reporting software, you also want to make sure that the tool is focused on outcomes. A technology solution is only as great as the outcomes it delivers. So it's important to choose a solution that will work collaboratively with your team to define measures and processes that will achieve the best possible operational, financial, and clinical results.
- A Plan for Implementation that Involves People and Processes- Not Just Tech.
Even the best technology can only take you so far. In order for healthcare organizations to achieve consistently improved outcomes and high quality care, a technology system also has to focus on people and processes. It's important for organizations to fully understand their current processes, as well as gaps in their systems, in order to determine which technology is the best fit for their unique needs.
