An Almost Medical Error™ or Near Miss is an unplanned event that has the potential to cause harm, but due to a fortunate break in the chain of events was prevented from being harmful, or fatal.
Reporting these Almost Medical Errors™ will help healthcare organizations learn ways to prevent future errors, and create a safe environment for patients, staff, and family members.
AlmostME™ provides a voluntary, confidential, non-punitive, and secure means of reporting (AME™) Almost Medical Errors™ or Near-Miss Medical Error Incidents by patients and healthcare professionals with the goal of improving patient safety.
High-reliability approaches to patient safety are increasingly focused on preventing harm by focusing on near-miss and precursor safety events. These early-phase events allow systems problems and process issues to be detected before patients are harmed. AlmostME is an intuitive app that allows frontline healthcare staff to quickly create structured near-miss reports without disrupting their workflow.
AlmostME™ leverages cutting-edge mobile device technology to allow near-miss events (Almost Medical Errors™ or AME's) to be reported and seamlessly interfaced into hospital legacy systems. AlmostME™ will help decrease serious safety events by making near-miss safety event reporting easy and intuitive. This innovative technology will make care safer, more effective and less costly.
