On July 6th UCLA Health is implementing a new event reporting system called Safety Opportunities for Improvement (SOFI) for reporting of near miss and actual events associated with patients, employees and visitors.
At UCLA Health, we constantly strive to improve both patient safety and outcomes. The best way to do this is to build a strong culture of safety by enabling individuals to communicate actual or near miss events and opportunities for improvement. In turn, key stakeholders are made aware of situations and action plans are developed to improve care. The event reporting system is the primary source in UCLA Health that helps us identify opportunities for improvement.
In preparation for the SOFI go live, all UCLA staff are required to watch the following culture of safety video, which also includes training on how to report an event in SOFI. In addition, on-site training will be provided to leaders who receive and follow up on events prior to go live. We are very excited for the implementation of SOFI as UCLA Health continues its journey toward growing a stronger culture of safety with the entire UCLA team.
