ECRI Top Ten Safety Safety Concerns.

ECRI Institute published its Top 10 Patient Safety Concerns for Healthcare Organizations to give healthcare organizations a gauge to check their track record in patient safety. The list originally appeared in its Healthcare Risk Control (HRC) System newsletter, the Risk Management Reporter, and is reprinted in this report. The list is partly based on more than 300,000 patient safety events, custom research requests, and root- cause analyses submitted to our federally designated patient safety organization, ECRI Institute PSO, for evaluation and analysis.

The number 1 issue on the list is data integrity failures with Health IT systems.

ECRI intends to publish its top 10 list of patient safety concerns on an annual basis and recommends using it along with ECRI Institute’s other two top 10 lists: list of health technology hazards and ar list of technologies to watch to stay informed in all areas of patient safety.
