Clarity Informatics have been involved in patient safety in four regions of England for six years. This has focused on working with NHS partners to deliver clinical quality improvement and mortality review programmes.
There are many ways to embed a culture of patient safety and quality improvement in a clinical setting. These include inspection of sites, surveys of opinion such as patient experience measures, quantitative data using national or regional information or collecting data from clinical units. We have specific experience in the data collection, analytics and reporting to improve patient safety.
We rely on clinical engagement at the outset. Our method of driving the process provides a firm foundation for the clinical “buy-in” which secures a basis for future working. Beyond this, in order to provide confidence for the clinicians, we then deliver high quality complete and accurate data to inform our approach to patient safety and quality improvement.
