Description:

National Adverse Event Management System (NAEMS) is a national web-based database for the reporting of adverse clinical incidents and ‘near misses’.

The Clinical Indemnity Scheme (CIS) was established in 2002, in order to rationalise pre-existing medical indemnity arrangements by transferring to the State, via the Health Service Executive (HSE), hospitals and other health agencies, responsibility for managing clinical negligence claims and associated risks.

Under the scheme, which is managed by the State Claims Agency (SCA), the name used by the National Treasury Management Agency (NTMA) when carrying out its claims’ and risk management functions, the State assumes full responsibility for the indemnification and management of
all clinical negligence claims, including those which are birth-related. Although the system has a primary Claims Management functionality, the clinical incident reporting feature is designed to support sharing of learning from “near misses” and in the aftermath of serious adverse clinical events, at local and national levels.
