Start Working Differently
Our Safety Learning System™ (SLS) methodology of case review allows practicing providers to become a part of healthcare improvement & gives them the opportunity to learn from each other in a non-adversarial environment. The purpose of SLS case review is to identify system issues or barriers that prevent providers from doing their best job & allow for harm to be caused.
The proper dissemination of case review findings could not be done without system administrators who are in charge of configuring & managing our Healthcare Safeware® technology. System administrators are essential to guiding case reviewers, safeguarding PHI, managing patient cases, preparing for MultiLens discussion, aggregating findings & disseminating the learnings.

Value of a Central Registry
A central registry is essential to the standardization & reconciliation of case review findings. It further allows for broader findings to recorded that can be shared with everyone in an organization. Our Healthcare Safeware® acts as a central registry for your organization and allows for data to be meaningfully aggregated & disseminated throughout each hospital.
Customize Your Findings
Configuration allows for Healthcare Safeware® to be customized to your hospital's organizational & leadership structure. System administrators are responsible for the accurate configuration of the software before reviews begin. It can be a lengthy process but we can't stress the importance of this step enough. Actionable information could not be gained from findings & data would cease to be meaningful to your organization without this process of customization.
