SAN FRANCISCO (November 25, 2013)-RGP Healthcare™, a division of Resources Global Professionals (NASDAQ: RECN) and developer of incident management software Pavisse™, today announced that Madera Community Hospital has selected Pavisse to enhance patient safety and track, manage and analyze incidents.
Madera Community Hospital (MCH) is a not-for-profit community hospital based in the Central Valley of California. MCH will implement Pavisse to further promote a culture of safety, as well as improve the efficiency of work processes for quality and risk management.
Prior to Pavisse, MCH used an internally-built incident reporting system. Although effective as a means of gathering incident information, MCH's needs eventually exceeded the system's capabilities, prompting the search for a more robust tool. Pavisse was selected based on ease of use and flexibility.
"Madera Community Hospital views the relationship with RGP Healthcare as collaborative and a beneficial step in improving our ability to deliver quality care to the patients we serve," said Lisa Essex, Director of Quality and Risk Management for MCH. "Our collaboration with RGP Healthcare and the implementation of Pavisse is another positive step in keeping with the hospital's dedication to provide quality healthcare services to Madera and the surrounding communities."
Said RGP Healthcare President Radgia Cook: "We are delighted to partner with MCH, which has demonstrated an ongoing commitment to the communities it serves and to improving patient safety. Pavisse's end-to-end ability to integrate and streamline the incident management process will play a pivotal role in helping MCH achieve its goals for delivering high quality and efficient patient care."
