failure mode and effects analysis

, failure mode and effect analysis,

FMEA

An attempt to prioritize system-wide problems that may arise in the provision of (health care) services. It involves a review of the likelihood that particular errors may be made, along with the magnitude of the effect of those errors. Failures that occur frequently or may have a large impact on outcomes are identified for proactive review and repair.
