Despite widespread implementation of incident reporting systems, events remain underreported by physicians. This quality improvement study increased the proportion of incident reports submitted by physicians using text message prompts, faculty development, and a patient safety rotation for medical resident physicians. These results demonstrate that specific interventions can increase physician use of voluntary event reporting systems.
