As part of an ongoing commitment to advancing quality health care and improving patient safety, UTMB will begin using the new UHC/Datix Patient Safety Net® (PSN) effective February 25, 2013.
The PSN will continue to be our Web-based reporting tool that was reorganized by UHC/Datix and will assist us in capturing information about safety-related incidents and improving both communication and collaboration among patient safety team members. Specifically, the PSN will continue to capture information about adverse events, near misses, and unsafe conditions that involve patients, staff and visitors.
We hope you will do your part in making UTMB a safer environment by making the commitment to use the PSN tool. We will continue to update all staff through the next couple of weeks with the cross over track to the new system.
Thanks for your commitment to safety by reporting!
