A first-in-nation pilot of automated adverse event detection and response in Massachusetts hospitals

The Betsy Lehman Center is seeking a diverse cohort of 6-8 Massachusetts acute care hospitals to pilot an automated adverse event monitoring system. Our partner, Pascal Metrics Inc., is a federally listed Patient Safety Organization and a leader in the field.

This technology runs in the background of electronic health records to detect preventable patient harm events in near-real time. Daily analytics, combined with expert consultation, enables a timely response to reduce the risk of future harm. Early-adopter hospitals across the country have achieved significant and sustained reductions in preventable harm and high returns on investment.
