Datix Limited Key Developments

Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust Deploys Datix's Patient Safety Software to Support the Newly Formed Foundation Trust

Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust has deployed Datix patient safety software to support the newly formed Foundation Trust, following the merger of Norfolk and Suffolk's separate mental health trusts in January 2012. With both former trusts as users of Datix Incidents for many years, NSFT purchased Datix Risk Register in March 2013 to manage, mitigate and minimise risk effectively across the larger, more complex organisation. NSFT's most recent investment in Datix has already improved communication, promoted proactive decision-making around patient safety and elevated the role of risk management in support of the Trust's four-year Service Strategy. Datix Risk Register provides NSFT with a valuable audit trail that tracks the management and mitigation of risks from end to end. The Trust knows exactly what risks it faces and who is accountable for managing each risk. With support from the Trust board, the system has been adopted widely at all levels and has significantly elevated the awareness of risk and the role of risk management. The advanced reporting capabilities provided by Datix enable NSFT to identify Serious Untoward Incidents on a daily basis. For example, should a patient act aggressively towards a member of staff, this is triggered as a potential risk to the organisation. If this type of incident recurs, the Trust has the appropriate evidence to call the police and take the matter forward without delay.
