When you make the upgrade from NRLS to LFPSE, you need to set yourself up for success. This comes by moving to an LFPSE incident reporting system that supports full triangulation of incident data with all other related safety and quality assurance data including clinical audits, CQC, NICE, policies, key quality indicators and more.

A fully integrated system supports better learning and improvement with more informed, faster decision making.

Your new LFPSE incident reporting system should be able to have further modular additions that allow you to create one, integrated solution.

The 7 Critical Elements of LFPSE.

We’ve put together this blog mini-series to talk you through what you should look for in your new LFPSE incident reporting system. It’s now more important than ever to choose your new system, ahead of the March 2023 deadline set by NHS England.

Whilst NHSE has extended the deadline for a testing, refinement and customisation period until 30th September 2023, you must still have procured and begun testing by the 31st March 2023.

Triangulation Capabilities.

When it comes to something as serious as learning and improvement surrounding incidents, it’s crucial that you have complete oversight of the data. You must be able to follow the golden thread of cause and effect for better understanding and improvement-based decision making.

After an incident has been reported and uploaded to localised and national LFPSE databases, it’s crucial to learning and improvement that the data can be analysed further. Your new LFPSE incident reporting system should be integrated and can triangulate data against audits, CQC, NICE, policies and key quality indicators.

This gives you the ability to quickly and easily pinpoint where the issues lie with the support of triangulated, cross-checked capabilities. For example, check the audits are being done and if the policy is being followed. You can then make the best improvement decisions and act immediately.

Your teams can learn from patient safety events and improve by quickly and easily creating actions in alignment with policy, CQC and NICE to keep everyone on track and ensure time is spent in the most impactful areas.

More importantly, get complete oversight of your organisation from top to bottom and mine data for gold at any level for robust, reliable and evidenced assurance.

Oversight from InPhase: Your One, Integrated Solution.

Oversight from InPhase is designed for integration that sets your Trust up for success. If you migrate to LFPSE Incident Oversight, you get the opportunity for concurrent or future upgrades to include audit, quality, CQC, NICE, risk registers, mortality, safeguarding, policies, BAF, PAM and more.

When asked what prompted their move to InPhase, Chris North, the Quality and Assurance Lead at Sulis Hospital Bath, said “it was a choice between multiple new contracts or something that is integrated… Oversight offered modules for most of the areas we need a product. It appealed to us to have it all in one place. That’s a real positive.”

When used together these modules create the ultimate single oversight system, providing robust and reliable assurance from team to ward to board.

The Power of Three.

Your new LFPSE incident reporting system must have triangulation capabilities of at least: Incident, Audit and Quality assurance (including CQC self-assessments, NICE Guidance, policies and key quality indicators).

This will maximise the learning potential of your data as well as support you in identifying trends in a real-time golden thread of reliable information to ensure preventative measures are put in place, influencing positive policy changes and incidents do not happen again.

Get one place, one system and one truth to provide the best possible patient safety and care.
