It is not sufficient to merely identify risks when it comes to healthcare. Risks need to be analyzed and appropriate safety measures need to be identified and monitored.

The bowtie methodology complements risk identification methods like HFMEA studies and provides a deeper understanding of your risk. Some questions that need to be answered are:

  • Do we have enough (or too many) safety measures?
  • Can we focus more on hardware or systems, instead of procedures?
  • Do we know who is accountable for our safety measures?
  • Are the safety measures as adequate and reliable as we thought they would be?

An increasing number of health care organizations are using the bowtie methodology for analyzing, monitoring and communicating their risks.
