Near Miss Registry
ACP facilitated the nationwide expansion of the Near Miss Registry, developed by the New York Chapter of the ACP and Dr. Ethan Fried, to improve patient safety.
A near miss is an act of omission or commission that could have harmed a patient but did not reach the patient as a result of chance, prevention or mitigation. The goal of the Near Miss Registry is to understand factors that can lead to such close calls and how medical errors can be averted.
Individual clinicians report near miss events on a confidential, anonymous web-based survey. ACP is working to expand the Near Miss Registry to community hospitals around the U.S. and to ambulatory practices, linking the confidential and secure survey tool to educational and quality improvement resources.
The reporting tool is located at nearmiss.org and is hosted on a secure server that is protected under the confidentiality provisions of the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2005.
