Follow-Ups in RMPro

The Follow Up feature of RMPro allows users, who have responsibility for following up on a Patient Safety Report, to document their follow up in the report. It also allows users to communicate in a peer review protected manner with each other about follow up within the system.

Follow up responsibilities

Follow Up Responsibilities

  • Initiate and document comprehensive follow up within 48 hours of receiving a Patient Safety Report. Follow up should be initiated immediately for reports with a severity level above level 3. Timeliness is essential to assure meaningful follow up.

  • Follow up should include analysis and comments on factors that contributed to the event, whether the event was preventable, and any corrective measures taken.

  • Complete follow up within 7 business days of the Patient Safety Report being entered (though in some instances this is not possible).

  • If yours is the primary department involved in the event, notify Risk Management when all follow-up has been completed and the file is ready for closure by entering the follow up type: “FILE IS READY FOR CLOSURE”. If this step is omitted, Risk Management will not be notified that the file can be closed.

Follow Up Responsibilities

  • When another department/service is involved, use the email function in RMPro to communicate promptly and directly with other manager(s) who need to add follow up.

  • If your department is one of the other departments and services involved in an event, complete follow up as noted above and enter the follow up type: “Follow up is complete for my area”.

  • Review the “Open Files” report which you will receive weekly, and respond to open files. Files open for your area can also be viewed any time by looking in “Add a follow up note”.

  • Communicate changes and improvements to staff using RMPro reports as appropriate.

In conclusion

In Conclusion

  • Once you have clicked on the “OK” button on the lower right of the “Follow Up Details” screen, your follow up will be recorded. Be sure to log out when you are finished.

  • ALL communication regarding Patient Safety Reports should be kept in RMPro to maintain peer review protection.

  • Please do not email regarding Patient Safety Reports outside of RMPro. By doing so, peer review protection is lost and we do not have a record of follow up.

    If you have questions, pleasecontact Risk Management:
