This study examined the implementation of a tool integrated into the electronic health record to export surgical discharge data to an adverse event reporting platform. The tool demonstrated high sensitivity and specificity when compared to a chart audit and identified a higher proportion of adverse surgical events than traditional reporting mechanisms. The authors recommend implementation of these automated reporting mechanisms.
