Goals and Priorities for Health Care Organizations to Improve Safety Using Health IT

  • May 1, 2016

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) published a revised report on recommendations and suggested solutions to potential Health IT safety issues. The report includes data and recommendations garnered from CRICO Strategies national Comparative Benchmarking System (CBS), a database comprising more than 350,000 medical liability claims.


Recommendations for health care organizations originated largely from the results of studies of adverse event reports and claims reported to (or through) entities, including The Joint Commission (TJC), The ECRI Institute, the Controlled Risk Insurance Company (CRICO), the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP), the Veterans Health Administration, and the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) Manufacturer and User Facility Device Experience (MAUDE) database.
