Abstract

Harmful events, which occur during the provision of health care, can be costly and deadly. The challenge for clinicians and health professionals is to eliminate or at least reduce occurrence of these events to improve quality of care. This paper introduces a web-based intelligent system for managing the clinical incidents. The development of the system is an integration of rule-based reasoning, case-based reasoning and causal-based reasoning over the net infrastructure. The use of heuristic knowledge, previous cases as well as causal models facilitates the implementation of analysing, browsing and explaining clinical incident knowledge. The resulting system leads health professionals to share knowledge/experience on active and latent human failures and the re-use of such information increases clinical safety awareness.
