Tracking data in the office environment.

Author information

  • 1Board of Managers-Mountain View Hospital, Idaho Falls, Idaho 83404, USA.


Data tracking in the office setting focuses on a narrow spectrum of the entire patient safety arena; however, when properly executed, data tracking increases staff members' awareness of the importance of patient safety. Data tracking is also a high-volume event and thereby continues to loop back on the consciousness of providers in all aspects of their practice. Improvement in date tracking will improve the collateral areas of patient safety such as proper medication usage, legibility of written communication, effective delegation of patient safety initiatives, and a collegial effort at developing teams for safety design processes.
