Intervene is a product that allows Pharmacists to record an intervention during the screening of a drug chart. Sometimes the severity of the intervention may result in a patient death, thus the system can recommend to add these interventions to a risk register like DATIX.
The importance of recording these errors via an intervention form serves two main purposes. Firstly, it is to keep track of the error and include it on a risk register for auditing purposes. Secondly, it serves an educational purpose so if the errors keep recurring, the Pharmacists can train the doctors to reduce or eliminate the same errors.
Statistics on the interventions are also available in real time and reports can be produced for specific periods in time. These are useful to append to slides and displayed during meetings to discuss these errors.
