Incident reporting generates data about adverse events. This qualitative study of patient safety analysts sought insights about how incident report data is synthesized and used. Participants reported that existing software for safety reporting does not support needed analysis such as trends over time, integration of data from multiple sources, and categorization of events. The results highlight the need to develop sociotechnical approaches to error reporting.
