The more we report, the more we learn.
A Near Miss caught today could prevent an Occurrence tomorrow.
Increase near miss reporting and enhance patient safety through implementation and maintenance of data-driven improvement strategies.
Experts view near misses as possibly the best predictors we have of medical error; yet, these are markedly underreported. American Data Network PSO’s statewide Good Catch campaign aims to help learning-focused organizations turn that trend around!
ADN PSO developed an incentive-based campaign that fosters a growing culture of safety by encouraging the recognition and reporting of risk before anyone is harmed. ADN PSO’s Good Catch campaign offers participating organizations opportunities to:
- Significantly increase near miss reporting;
- Reveal process and system vulnerabilities; and
- Develop and implement proactive data-driven improvement activities.
Our goals are to help hospitals capture the data they need to identify areas where their patients’ quality of care and safety could be improved and to support their endeavors to drive change. We’re committed to working alongside each participating organization throughout this process. We’ve even developed a Good Catch Awards program to recognize individuals, departments or teams, and whole organizations that use near miss analytics to take action that ultimately reduces risk and prevents patient harm.
Good Catch campaign runs from January 1 – December 31, 2017.
The Good Catch campaign has been endorsed by the following associations who are committed to healthcare quality and patient safety in Arkansas
Note that participation in the Good Catch campaign does not constitute PSO membership nor does it invoke any federal protections associated with PSO participation.
