In 2014, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) began funding Patient Safety Learning Laboratories (PSLL) which use collaborative approaches to incorporate digital health tools to improve patient safety.  This research paper discusses the experiences of 12 inpatient units at one large tertiary care center after implementation of a PSLL intended to engage patients, families and the care team in identifying, assessing and reducing threats to patient safety in real time through EHR integration.
