Texas Health Resources used rapid application development techniques to deploy a Web-based application, the Safety Action Learning Tool, which captures and analyzes data related to patient safety. The healthcare provider's more than 21,000 workforce members can input incident information, which is routed to managers for follow-up action. Managers can use the information, which has links to additional data about patients, employees and medication, to improve processes. Employees can file reports in 75 percent less time, and reporting of incidents has increased as much as 40 percent.
