Maximize your departmental safety
Every clinic, regardless of its size, resources, and experience, can benefit from prospective risk management. myQA PROactive will enable you to maximize departmental safety and optimize your QA program with your available resources.
Until recently, specific tools were not available to enable every clinic to perform prospective risk analysis quickly and easily. myQA PROactive changes this situation, with easy-to-use features and compliance with major risk analysis guidelines, including AAPM TG 100 and European regulations from the EU Council directive 2013/59/EURATOM.
Save time with intuitive tools
The Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) method is an intuitive tool used by many risk managers. myQA PROactive starts you with a clean and powerful FMEA workspace where you can quickly learn how to use the innovative features.
- Import your existing FMEA studies or start with high-quality, fully editable IBA templates prepared by our clinical partners.
- Create flowcharts to clearly detail your workflows. Flowcharts can be annotated and color coded without adding complexity.
- Set risk acceptance and tolerance levels with a risk matrix and review consequences with intuitive “traffic light” indicators.
- View risk status with the library dashboard and use version control to track development of your risk analysis.
Innovative objective risk analysis
Avoid time-consuming complexities of risk evaluations such as cryptic numbers and human bias. Maximize support for obtaining the resources necessary to implement your identified safety measures. With myQA PROactive you gain:
- Automated analysis of risks, based on measurable quantities like “event rate” (affected patients per year).
- Automated quantitative evaluation of safety measures in terms of event rates.
- Automated cost benefit analysis of all safety measures to support change for your department.
Be systematic and targeted
With myQA PROactive, you can opt for Fault Tree Analysis (FTA), FMEA, or both. FTA is a powerful tool for prospective risk management. FTA focuses on worst-case scenario and adverse effects on patients and is very fast. FMEA is workflow centric and systematic but time consuming. FMEA and FTA can be used as alternatives or complementary.
myQA PROactive Synchronization℗ enables you to switch effortlessly between FTA and FMEA analyses. You can target the most hazardous risks with FTA and then systematically analyze all workflow details with FMEA.

myQA PROactive: The only commercial prospective risk management solution for radiation oncology, a tool for risk management.
Proactive Risk Management in Radiation Oncology: from Burden to Value
Multi-professional healthcare teams use proactive risk management (RM) to analyse probable patient treatment failures and execute "safety measures" to prevent mishaps. IBA Dosimetry software for proactive risk management is myQA Proactive. This article shows how it solves FMEA spreadsheet flaws and facilitates AAPM TG100  implementation so every clinic may manage risks with a positive effort balance.
"myQA PROactive is an innovative tool for prospective risk analysis tailored to the needs of radiation oncology. It offers a formalized approach to risk assessment following best practice methodology. The software includes flowcharts and FMEA, and the integrated fault tree analysis identifies measures to block multiple error pathways, further increasing patient safety."
