Mortality
Review System

Creating A Safer Process

They are avoidable, expensive, and serious – and yet preventable medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States. 1Hospitals and acute care facilities have invested millions of dollars in technology solutions, but their approach isn’t working. There’s a better option out there – an option that addresses the weakest aspects of traditional Mortality and Morbidity Reviews.

Conventional mortality review systems evaluate individual decision-making, but that’s not sufficient. The Fortude Mortality Review System looks at more, evaluating a greater percentage of patient deaths (up to 100%) in an effort to identify weaknesses in overall processes. This project was launched in partnership with researchers from the world-renowned Mayo Clinic.

What Can It Do For You?

The Fortude approach is dramatically different. Our Mortality Review System (MRS) provides distinct advantages, such as centralized reporting and standardized review systems, which ultimately help you achieve improved safety scores.

Our MRS can help you:

  • Save financial resources and time in comparison to building a comparable system
  • Access data in real-time
  • Use an optimized delivery model for quick implementation
  • Integrate with third parties
  • Use a customized workflow and task management system
  • With action tracking and root cause analysis modules
  • Create extensible reporting module
  • Identify system frailties such as:
  • The duration of time between checking a patient’s vitals
  • The dosage for a specific medication
  • The response time for addressing fever
  • The number of nursing staff on duty on a med/surg floor
