July 30, 2009, Cambridge, MA – RL Solutions, the leading provider of healthcare quality and safety software, announced today that it will be sponsoring the 2009 MITSS HOPE Award. MITSS and RL Solutions will present the award at the MITSS 8th Annual Dinner and Fundraiser on Thursday, November 12, 2009, at the Boston Marriott Copley Place Hotel.
MITSS established this award in 2008 to recognize people who exemplify its mission: supporting healing and restoring hope to patients, families and clinicians affected by adverse medical events. The award winner must demonstrate this through leadership, promoting awareness, education, advocacy, support and action in his or her healthcare community. Patients, families, healthcare providers, hospitals (including teams or departments), academic institutions, community health centers, grassroots organizations and EAP programs are all encouraged to apply.
“We are humbled and delighted to sponsor the MITSS Hope Award,” said Mike Smith, Director of Alliances at RL Solutions. “Both of our organizations are dedicated to patient safety: our solutions help healthcare workers prevent incidents, while MITSS helps people when incidents do happen. It’s an honor to partner with such a like-minded organization.”
“We truly appreciate RL Solutions’ sponsorship of this year’s award,” reflected Linda Kenney, MITSS President and Executive Director. “The MITSS Hope Award is a great way to recognize the remarkable individuals working within our healthcare system to improve patient safety.”
As part of its sponsorship, RL Solutions will provide the $5,000 prize that will be presented to the deserving winner to help them continue their work. Applications for the HOPE Award are available at www.mitss.org/hopeaward.
