CHICAGO LONDON May 23, 2012 Washington, D.C.
UHC, an alliance of 116 academic medical centers with 264 affiliated hospitals in the U.S., and Datix, a U.K.-based provider of patient safety technology solutions, today announced a strategic collaboration to deliver new patient safety software and improve quality in U.S. hospitals.
The collaboration of UHC and Datix will provide UHC members with access to additional patient safety information that can help improve overall hospital quality. The partnership will build on Datix’s advanced software development expertise and extensive tool suite and UHC’s current Patient Safety Net® program, including deep patient safety knowledge, use of Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) common formats, and Patient Safety Organization (PSO) services.

One of the key areas of the partnership is the expansion of UHC’s Patient Safety Net® — one of the largest repositories of patient safety event data, and a unique analytical and benchmarking tool — to include information about claims and complaints.
"We selected Datix because it is the global leader in safety and risk management solutions with a proven, long-standing commitment to advancing patient safety," said Thompson.
