Near-real time monitoring of patient safety incident (PSI) reports can be facilitated with automatic detection methods, which can improve timeliness of detection. Reduced PSI identification time would provide quicker feedback on PSI data to healthcare professionals and allow them to effectively adjust safety procedures at hospitals. A visualization of the PSI data can provide the user with feedback together with a PSI data exploration possibilities and analysis of the PSI patterns. Therefore, during the project, a web-based interface (wUI) was developed using web-development tools and provided PSI data as a proof of concept. Usability theory was considered during design to facilitate a user-friendly and intuitive feedback tool. The implemented wUI was validated and the results showed, that the systems requirements were fulfilled well, with possible optimization features.
