Patient safety remains a cornerstone of healthcare, often as the barometer of an institution's overall quality and efficacy. Yet, this critical aspect of healthcare is far from fail-proof, with issues ranging from medical errors to trips and falls affecting countless patients yearly.

However, the conversation around patient safety is changing, evolving from mere error minimisation to creating robust systems designed to maximise learning and improvement. Innovative triangulation is an integral part of building this system.

What Sets Triangulation Apart?

Triangulation in patient safety is a methodical approach to learning from patient safety incidents, incorporating multiple layers of data – from incidents, risks, complaints, claims, audits, CQC self-assessments, NICE, CAS and more - to construct a well-rounded, comprehensive view of patient care and potential pitfalls.

It's an analytical technique that enables healthcare professionals to cross-reference data from disparate sources without having to manually do so, to pinpoint issues that may go unnoticed when evaluating each data source individually.

Healthcare providers can proactively identify and address underlying patterns, trends, and concerns by doing so.

Spotlight: King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

King's College Hospital in London is a prime example of an institution that is building a powerful risk management system that can leverage triangulation to elevate its safety protocols. With an unwavering commitment to patient care, this system is focused on patient safety, integrating a state-of-the-art digital system to streamline data collection and analysis across departments.

This allows for real-time risk assessment and proactive interventions, effectively revolutionising the traditional approaches to patient safety.
