Enhancing patient safety event reporting. a systematic review of system design features.
Electronic patient safety event reporting (e-reporting) is an effective mechanism to learn from errors and enhance patient safety. This paper aimed at revealing the current status of system features, detecting potential gaps in system design, and accordingly proposing suggestions for future design and implementation of the system. Three literature databases were searched for publications that contain informative descriptions of e-reporting systems. In addition, both online publicly accessible reporting forms and systems were investigated. The authors concluded that the current e-reporting systems are at an immature stage in their development, and discussed their future development direction toward efficient and effective systems to improve patient safety.
