The Center for Patient Safety has a new program to gather data to help Missouri providers address two major concerns: falls with injury and adverse events with high-risk medications. Participants in the program will spend a few minutes per event on a web-based data-gathering platform. CPS will process the information and, together with Primaris, develop solutions for issues identified in the reports. In addition to their contribution to safety, participants will benefit in several ways:
- Access to a data platform that can function as an internal electronic incident reporting system,
- Federal confidentiality protection for the participant’s work on the reported areas, and
- Access to an excel-based tool to record root cause investigations and CPS resources for effective investigation.
