Why should I submit an adverse event or near miss into SOFI?
By submitting an adverse event or near miss in SOFI, you are providing key information about variances in patient care that are often associated with care processes and systems. We can learn from those variances and improve processes and systems to prevent future similar occurrences.
What happens after I submit an event into SOFI?
After an event is submitted, an email notification is sent from the system to department and category managers for review. The SOFI report will also be reviewed by Quality Management. Follow-up action(s) will be taken by specific departments as appropriate. Click here to see the Quality Event Flow Chart >
