TITLE :ROLE OF INCIDENT REPORTING SYSTEM IN HEALTHCARE MANAGEMENT: A CASE OF MULTISPECIALITY TERTIARY HOSPITAL IN INDIA
Abstract :The incidence reporting system (IRS) has risen to prominence as a critical tool for enhancing patient safety. The majority of affluent countries (such as the United States of America) are well progressed in implementing and strengthening their IRS systems, while developing countries such as India remain in the nascent stage. This research aims to analyze the role of IRS in healthcare administration through the lens of a multispecialty tertiary hospital in India's Punjab state. We evaluate the hospital's incident records for the years 2019 and 2020. The study emphasizes the inadequacy of the manual approach for reporting healthcare incidents and the importance of reinforcing the usage of the IRS. The study demonstrates that staff training, practical demonstrations, awareness lectures, and continuous nursing education (CNE) in IRS contribute to lowering incident recurrence. In summary, IRS can contribute significantly to incident reporting, patient safety, and effective healthcare management in developing nations such as India.
