Case Review & IHI Trigger Tools

The "trigger tool" methodology, developed by the Institute of Healthcare Improvement (IHI) describes a way to greatly enhance the chart or case-note review process by rapidly identifying events that may suggest the presence of an adverse event or omission of care.


Edgebox has developed a general trigger tool for case review that can be used to quickly build a profile of safety and quality across a range of known clinical issues by reviewing as few as 20 cases.

Including a manual case review component into your incident or adverse event reporting program can help assess the accuracy and validity of voluntary reporting initiatives while uncovering hidden issues that may not be visible through other methods of error detection.

Other more specific sets of trigger tools  are available for different care settings to look for things such as adverse drug events in nursing homes. For more specific drug assessment requirements in nursing homes please see our comprehensive modules for Pharmacovigilence.
