InPhase is partnering with the Health Service Journal to bring attention to the importance of improving patient safety systems.
With the deadline to switch to an LFPSE (Learn from Patient Safety Events) compliant system before March 2023 just 6 months away, it’s crucial that Trusts begin to look for a new incident reporting system now.
We’ll be at the Patient Safety Congress! Will you?
Important update! The Patient Safety Congress will now take place on 24th-25th October 2022.
The Health Service Journal (HSJ) is hosting its annual Patient Safety Congress on the 24th-25th October 2022, and InPhase will be there!
The Congress is designed to talk about all things patient safety, including the very pertinent topic of transitioning patient safety reporting of incidents, risk and events to the new Learn from Patient Safety Events (LFPSE) national system. Healthcare providers across the UK meet to discuss how we can work together to create an excellent patient experience, keep them safe, prevent incidents, and ensure learning and improvement.
How can Trusts rely on technology when all it does is slow them down? There might be a better way…
The Covid-19 pandemic put a never-before-seen strain on healthcare providers that they will be recovering from for the foreseeable future. The usual 1M annual users of the NHS avoided the service during the pandemic to prevent further strain on the service, avoid catching the virus or have had their consultations pushed back to accommodate the number of Covid patients that had taken precedent.
Audits no longer need to be gruelling, time-consuming work. Audit Oversight from InPhase shows you how to revolutionise your audits!
The ‘World Hand Hygiene Day’ on social media, running under the slogan ‘Unite for Safety: Clean your Hands’, was applauded by Jules Storr, former president of the Infection Prevention Society, who said, “I love the theme of this year’s campaign – the culture around safety and quality and of course infection prevention and control is everything.”
With the announcement by NHS England that all healthcare providers must have a Learn from Patient Safety Event (LFPSE) compliant incident reporting system by 31st March 2023, Incident Oversight from InPhase became one of the leading LFPSE certified solutions for all NHS Trusts.
East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust were one of the first to select the new LFPSE compliant Incident Oversight app from InPhase, to aid their continuous improvements to patient safety. The move to InPhase allows for complete oversight of the Trust.
The mental health crisis among nurses is the unseen epidemic sweeping the NHS. We explore what could help.
The Covid-19 pandemic left devastation in its wake. With 22 million cases and 177,000 deaths in the UK alone, everybody has encountered the disease that will have a lasting impact on us for decades to come. The NHS and healthcare providers around the UK became the country's heroes, with the public flocking to the streets in their millions to cheer on our frontline workers.

Audits are often viewed as time-consuming, box-checking annoyances by the NHS staff who must complete them. As a result of the lengthy processes required to complete audits, audit completion rates are often not where they should be – with a not-unusual 43% completion rate recently recorded at a major trust.
A better way to record, report and learn from incidents to improve patient safety and care.
Incident reporting is vital for healthcare providers to advance learning, improvements, and patient care. However, due to a lengthy, complex reporting process, minor incidents often go unreported, giving an inaccurate overview of adverse events. For more reliable data, better learning, and continuing to work towards delivering better standards of patient care, NHS England strongly encourages reporting of incidents, despite much of it being voluntary.
