INVESTIGATION TOOL

Improving patient safety and quality of care through the use of smart technology

Where does Eva fit in?

Eva was created to replace the healthcare sector’s manual systems. Currently, no integral software solution exists to facilitate and improve the quality of patient safety investigations. This is where Eva comes in. Eva helps investigators save time and navigate the complexities of the investigative process. With automated tips and guidance drawn from the application’s rich knowledge base, Eva goes about gathering and interpreting the data behind the scenes to deliver consistency, support and a wider understanding of the improvements needed in patient safety in UK Healthcare.​

Healthcare Investigators Tool

How Eva helps overcome current challenges and raises the benchmark for incident investigations

User interface​

Healthcare workers report major challenges in conducting patient safety investigations, including a lack of sufficient training and guidance, and a general feeling of disorientation. Those responsible for investigations say that the process can become so convoluted that there isn’t enough time to implement the changes necessary for long-term improvements; investigations can be delayed, rushed and inconsistent. With Eva Investigation tool, you can:

  • Follow logical step-by-step processes to conduct investigations with greater efficiency and reporting quality​
  • Constantly improve processes and skills with automated guidance and built-in training features ​
  • Populate your Word document report with a click of a button​
  • Work on the move and in real-time – Eva functions on all types of devices at any time​
  • Rely on additional tech and consultancy support

Dashboards

Current processes often limit the ability of governance teams to track investigations, identify recurring themes and issues across multiple investigations, and take appropriate action. Meanwhile, the use of manual tools is time consuming and limits the collation and analysis of data at scale. With the Eva Investigation tool, you can:

  • Uncover common themes and underlying causes with a 360-degree view of investigations as well as into your organisation’s overall performance
  • Track the progress of individual investigations, including action plans, from simple user-friendly dashboards​
  • Inform proactive decision-making and policy design to prevent further incidents​
  • Optionally share anonymised data with other trusts to encourage greater learnings​
  • Report with confidence to regulators
