Underreporting of adverse events is a known shortcoming of incident reporting systems. This pre–post study demonstrated an increase in reporting of perioperative adverse events through a multifaceted intervention that included interviewing clinicians about barriers to reporting and creating a local requirement to complete adverse event reports using an electronic incident reporting system. The study team concluded that mandated reporting addresses underuse of incident reporting systems.
