Editor’s Note

The ECRI Institute and the Partnership for Health IT Patient Safety (ie, a multistakeholder collaborative convened and operated by the ECRI Institute) announced April 10 the new INsight® Culture of Safety Assessment for Health IT Companies.

The new program allows health IT developers to assess safety culture with a tool specifically tailored to their organizations. A confidential survey questionnaire facilitates development and implementation of safety-focused action plans gleaned from team members responses.

The Partnership is encouraging health IT companies to use the survey to focus on a three-part safety vision:

  • safe design and development
  • safe use
  • safe implementation of health IT.
