Ohio’s largest health system chooses RL6:Risk
October 14, 2010 (Toronto, Ontario) – RL Solutions, developers of innovative and easy-to-use healthcare quality and safety software, today announces that Catholic Healthcare Partners (CHP), has selected RL Solutions to enhance its patient safety and quality of care initiatives.
As one of the largest non-profit health systems in America, CHP has more than 38,000 associates working at 34 hospitals, 14 long-term care facilities and other diversified health initiatives. With that many people and locations, CHP needed an incident management system that was easy to use and customizable. RL6 from RL Solutions has an intuitive user interface and adaptable forms, so it easily meets both of these requirements.
Catholic Healthcare Partners will use the risk management module in RL6 to track safety events, near misses and more in a centralized database. With RL6, CHP will have complete control over its data and can freely share information within the organization or with third parties. RL6’s customizable reports permit staff to analyze CHP’s safety data immediately. These factors influenced Catholic Healthcare Partners’ selection of RL6.
“We hosted webinars at each of our sites, demonstrating potential reporting software,” explains Renee King, Performance Improvement Manager at Catholic Healthcare Partners. “After each webinar, we sent out a survey asking our staff to rate the products. RL6 received a 98% endorsement rate. Across the board, our front-line staff recognized that RL6 is easy to use. And our managers appreciated the high level of customization possible.”
“Everyone at RL Solutions is extremely excited to work with Catholic Healthcare Partners,” says Sanjay Malaviya, the president and CEO of RL Solutions. “CHP has been recognized repeatedly for its commitment to quality of care, by everyone from Thomson Reuters to the Joint Commission. We will work very hard to ensure that RL6 helps this top-performing health system provide even safer care to its patients.”
