This study describes the successful implementation of a Web-based reporting system for near-miss events in primary care practices. The most prevalent reports were breakdowns in office processes, with varying risk for adverse events, as found in prior studies of incident reporting. Although near-miss reporting can stimulate improvement efforts, it is not a precise method for detecting safety problems.
