UHC along with Datix, a UK-based provider of patient safety technology solutions, has decided to install its new patient Net®/Datix (PSN/Datix) solution at WVU Healthcare.

WVU Healthcare is the largest provider of healthcare services in West Virginia, with facilities that treat more than 3,600 people each day.

The initial implementation of the new online Datix incident reporting system is at West Virginia University Hospital and was rolled out to more than 6,000 staff and 400 physicians in June this year.

Tamma Melton, Manager, Center for Quality Outcomes at WVU Healthcare said, “We originally started working with UHC to access data for benchmarking and reporting purposes.” Mr. Melton also said, “We looked at UHC’s patient safety net, which is one of the largest repositories of patient safety event data, plus an analytical and benchmarking tool in U.S. Therefore, we were delighted to become the inaugural site for the new UHC and Datix collaboration and PSN/Datix patient safety software.”

The main advantage of the new system will be the ability for those reporting an incident or near miss to see feedback from their manager on the investigation process.

UHC is an alliance of the nation’s leading non-profit academic medical centers, which are focused on delivering world-class patient care. Datix is the leading supplier of software for patient safety, risk management, incident and adverse event reporting.
