Get to the Root of the Matter

Root Cause

When serious events occur in a healthcare setting, it's crucial to respond, document, learn and improve

Root Cause Collage

Performing a root cause analysis is one of the best ways to investigate the systemic causes of serious reportable events (SREs) and never events. With RL6:RootCause, you can easily perform a root cause analysis and build a corrective action plan.

RL6:RootCause helps hospitals get to the root of the matter

Move beyond basic root cause analysis with RL6. RL's root cause analysis software is integrated into the latest version of RL6:Risk, so you can start an RCA with just one click.


Document your root cause analysis and investigation in one easy-to-use system


Email action items to recipients and track their progress


Identify improvements that will translate into improved patient safety and outcomes—and cost savings


Build a narrative with a unique timeline view and flag important events for follow-up

By giving you the tools to dig down

Determine what actions caused harm and establish multiple root causes. RL6 includes special templates for physical causes, human causes and latent causes.

And generate reports

Use the powerful RL6 Report Center to get a centralized view of all the action items associated with an RCA, including open action items. Plus, track your recipients' follow-up actions directly in the root cause analysis file.
