Datix Cloud IQ, a newly released SaaS-based software application from Datix, will transform the way healthcare organizations learn when things go wrong by providing enhanced analysis of patient safety events.
CHICAGO, IL, November 10, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ — If one international healthcare software company has its way, the number of people who suffer globally from preventable patient harm is going to be significantly reduced. Datix, the world’s leading provider of patient safety software, has just released Datix Cloud IQ, an enhanced SaaS-based application that enables healthcare organizations to go beyond simple incident data to uncover “why” mistakes happen – allowing healthcare providers to eliminate root-cause issues that lead to medical errors, and truly embed change in their organizations.
With Datix Cloud IQ, healthcare providers can reverse the negative and increasing trend of preventable patient harm. The ground-breaking software provides the means for organizations to significantly improve institutional learning, resulting in better patient outcomes, enhanced efficiency, and reduced cost.
“Mistakes happen in high-risk environments,” said Oliver O’Connor, head of product management at Datix, “but by learning from those mistakes, we ensure a safer future for both patients and staff. This is a dramatic leap forward in the ability for organizations to move to a culture where learning is key to risk mitigation, rather than seeking to lay blame.”
As well as identifying “why” safety incidents occur through a rigorous investigations module, Datix Cloud IQ allows recommendations to be made for improving processes and assessing the value and outcome of those improvements.
Building on Datix’s reputation for providing comprehensive incident reporting and patient safety solutions, this system provides a fresh view of managing patient safety data. It is the result of academic collaboration, research, user engagement, and a continued drive for innovation. Datix Cloud IQ provides five toolkits (Capture, Evaluate, Strategy, Implement, and Assess) that take organizations through a continuous improvement process. There is also a comprehensive analytics feature, allowing organizations to look at trends as they occur and even predict where instances may arise in the future.
“Healthcare leaders and academics have acknowledged that we urgently need a more rigorous way to respond to untoward incidents and the failure to learn,” said Datix CEO Seyed Mortazavi. “Datix Cloud IQ is a direct response to that requirement. At Datix, we are harnessing the latest, easy-to-use, SaaS-based technology to enable all manner of healthcare systems to investigate and analyze why things go wrong. This is a pioneering next step to reporting on incidents, and one that will enable healthcare organizations to make a very real difference to patient safety.”
Datix Cloud IQ launched November 10.
