Reporting delays in treatment in Datix

As a result of the pandemic and the increase in waiting times seen in some of our services, Datix has now been updated to include an option to record patient harms which have resulted from a delay in treatment, either from within our own services or from services external to DCHS. This includes harms related to a deterioration of physical or psychological well-being. The option will appear when ‘Patient’ is selected for incident type, within the Incident coding section.
