  23. PATIENT SAFETYWUSM Event Reporting System • http://ers.wusm.wustl.edu

  24. Traditional Voluntary Reporting in Hospitals Lost Opportunities to Learn • Key Findings: • Hospital staff did not report 86% of events to incident reporting systems • Physician accounted for less than 2% of reports Hospital Incident Reporting Systems Do Not Capture Most Patient Harm. January 2012 OEI-06-09-00091 • Low physician reporting is problematic because it hinders the ability to identify and mitigate risks. Physicians view health care through a unique lens, which allows them to identify certain types of hazards and certain contributing factors better than others. Noble, DJ, Pronovost, Underreporting of Patient Safety Incidents Reduces Health Care’s Ability to Quantify and Accurately Measure Harm Reduction. J Patient Saf 2010; 6:24

  25. A Different Approach to Physician Reporting —Stimulated Reporting • M & M cases • Patient Safety Triggers: National or Local • PS Indicators (AHRQ) • IHI Global Trigger Tool • PS Triggers (see pocket card)
