    NHS hospital staff spend countless hours capturing data in electronic prescribing and medicines administration systems. Yet that data remains difficult to access and use to support patient care. This is a tremendous opportunity to improve patient safety, drive efficiencies and save time for frontline staff. I have just published a post about this challenge and Triscribe's solution. I would love to hear any comments or feedback on the topic... How could we use this information better? What are hospitals already doing? Where are the gaps? Thanks

    NHS hospital staff spend countless hours capturing data in electronic prescribing and medicines administration systems. Yet that data remains difficult to access and use to support patient care. This is a tremendous opportunity to improve patient safety, drive efficiencies and save time for frontline staff. In this blog, Kenny Fraser, CEO of Triscribe, explains why we need to deliver quick, low-cost improvement using modern, open source software tools and techniques. We don’t need schemes and standards or metrics and quality control. The most important thing is to build software for the needs and priorities of frontline pharmacists, doctors and nurses.

    Health and social care faces a conflict between safe and appropriate staffing and the (government) directive to be cost efficient. In a time of clinical and support staff shortages, increasing demand for services and financial austerity, there is a need for a consistent approach to workforce analysis, benchmarking and planning across the health and social care to enable informed decision-making across finance, HR and nursing management to put the patient and their safety at the centre of all we do. 'Establishment Genie' is an online workforce planning, safe staffing and benchmarking tool. It has been co-developed and tested with more than 300 teams across acute, community, residential care, hospice and independent providers of care. This has been supported by input from NHSE, NHS Professionals, The Florence Nightingale Foundation, Safe Staffing Alliance, Royal College of Nursing, Health Education England, Queen’s Nursing Institute and academic nurse staffing experts.

    The framework for safe, reliable, and effective care, set out by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, provides clarity and direction to health care organisations on the key strategic, clinical, and operational components involved in achieving safe and reliable operational excellence, a 'system of safety', not just a collection of stand-alone safety improvement projects.

    Medical errors rank as the eighth leading cause of death in the U.S. Clearly medical errors are an epidemic that needs to be contained. Despite these numbers, patient safety and medical errors remain an issue for physicians and other clinicians. This book bridges the issues related to patient safety by providing clinically relevant, vignette-based description of the areas where most problems occur. Each vignette highlights a particular issue such as communication, human factors, electronic health records, and provides tools and strategies for improving quality in these areas and creating a safer environment for patients.

    In their paper 'Managing risk in hazardous conditions: improvisation is not enough', Almaberti and Vincent ask "what strategies we might adopt to protect patients when healthcare systems and organisations are under stress and simply cannot provide the standard of care they aspire to". This is clearly a critical and much overdue question, as many healthcare organisations are in an almost constant state of stress from high workload, personnel shortages, high-complexity patients, new technologies, fragmented and conflicting payment systems, over-regulation, and many other issues. These stressors put mid-level managers and front-line staff in situations where they may compromise their standards and be unable to provide the highest quality care. Such circumstances can contribute to low morale and burn-out. Eric Thomas discusses this further in his Editorial published in BMJ Safety & Quality.

It was designed to improve efficiency, productivity and performance at ward level in acute hospitals. It was based on three principles: good ward organisation so that materials were readily accessible displaying ward-level metrics such as patient safety and experience use of visual aids to understand patient status at a glance.
