Unit 12: Learning from Mistakes: Error Reporting and Analysis and HIT

This unit is designed to assist the learner in understanding the role of HIT in error detection and reporting and analysis of errors. The unit pulls together the links between learning from mistakes and the science of safety and safe culture. It includes a review of three tools for error detection and reporting: automated surveillance systems, error reporting systems, and predictive analytics and modeling. Examples of two powerful quality improvement tolls (root cause analysis and failure mode effects analysis) are provided and the role of HIT professional in contributing to these efforts is discussed.
