The American Hospital Association Awards its Endorsement to RL Solutions RL6:Risk for Incident Management Reporting Systems
Chicago (October 20, 2009) – The American Hospital Association (AHA) today announced it has exclusively endorsed RL Solutions RL6:Risk for healthcare incident management. RL6:Risk is a web-based incident and adverse event management system that allows users to easily submit, refine, analyze and communicate critical incident information. AHA Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of the AHA, awards AHA endorsements for products and services which assist member hospitals and healthcare organizations to achieve organizational excellence.
Capturing and managing incidents effectively enables hospital administrators to evaluate trends, assess high risk areas and develop action plans to mitigate future risk. RL6:Risk from RL Solutions provides risk and quality managers the ability to manage incidents from occurrence to resolution. With RL6:Risk's powerful monitoring, alerting and drill-down reporting capabilities, organizations can streamline and eliminate most of the administrative tasks associated with adverse events resulting in more time for patient care and quality initiatives.
Unlike other offerings, RL6:Risk is completely flexible and does not force an organization to conform to preset workflows or specific ways of capturing information.
RL6:Risk also provides alignment to any number of federal, state and local taxonomies - including AHRQ Common Formats - allowing users to easily send data from the system to Patient Safety Organizations like the ECRI Institute PSO.
“It is critical that hospitals implement best-in-class technologies to streamline incident management and reporting,” said Anthony Burke, president and CEO, AHA Solutions, Inc. “Of all the solutions we evaluated, RL6:Risk offered the greatest flexibility for customization allowing health care providers to easily adapt to frequently changing needs in a fast-paced environment."
AHA implemented an intensive evaluation process dedicated to helping hospitals improve healthcare delivery and patient care. RL6:Risk was consistently described by users as flexible, easy to use and extremely intuitive.
“The entire RL Solutions team is honored to receive this endorsement from the AHA for RL6:Risk ,” said Sanjay Malaviya, President and CEO, RL Solutions. “We credit our dedicated clients, who have enthusiastically shared their ideas, suggestions and passion for excellence with us over the years, for this recognition. We feel privileged to have RL6:Risk acknowledged in this way and we look forward to working with the AHA in promoting safer healthcare.”
