New Toolkit for Patient IdentificationTHURSDAY, MARCH 30, 2017
The Partnership for Health IT Patient Safety, a multi-stakeholder collaborative convened and operated by ECRI Institute, has released a new toolkit – Health IT Safe Practices: Toolkit for the Safe Use of Health IT for Patient Identification. The toolkit outlines eight safe practice recommendations for safe health IT practices for patient identification along with actionable resources to facilitate implementation of the recommendations.
The recommendations are a robust culmination of a multi-stakeholder workgroup based on a deep dive of patient identification-related safety events reported to ECRI Institute PSO. Trish Lugtu, Sr. Manager, Advanced Analytics Solutions, participated on this workgroup to offer an analytical perspective based on malpractice claims data and continues to represent Constellation, a committed Collaborating Organization of the Partnership since 2015.
