Tenth largest healthcare system in the United States will implement
RL6:Risk throughout its facilities
TORONTO, Sept. 5, 2012 /CNW/ - RL Solutions, developers of innovative
and easy-to-use healthcare quality and safety software, announced today
that Trinity Health Corporation has selected RL6:Risk to enhance
patient safety and track, manage, and analyze incidents.
Trinity Health is the tenth largest healthcare system in the United
States, with a ten-state network of 49 acute-care hospitals, 432
outpatient facilities, and 33 long term care facilities. RL6:Risk will
be implemented throughout these facilities to allow the organization to
further promote a culture of safety as well as improve the efficiency
of work processes for quality and risk management.
Prior to RL6, Trinity Health had been using an internally built incident
reporting system. Although effective as a means of gathering incident
information, Trinity Health's needs eventually outweighed the system's
capabilities, prompting the search for a more robust tool. Before
deciding on RL Solutions, Trinity Health went through a vigorous
selection process to learn about the different solutions in the market,
reviewed RL6:Risk's exclusive endorsement from the American Hospital
Association and selected RL6:Risk based on its need for a solution that
was easy to use and flexible,
"Trinity Health participates in business relationships that are
collaborative and beneficial to its ministry — especially to our
patients," said Rebecca Havlisch, Vice President Insurance and Risk
Management for Trinity Health. "We look forward to the promise of our
collaboration with RL Solutions and expect the rollout of RL6:Risk to
help us achieve the patient safety improvements we seek."
"Trinity Health is a national healthcare leader, committed to its
communities and to improving patient safety across its 10-state
enterprise," said Sanjay Malaviya, President & CEO, RL Solutions.
"Initiatives such as 'Caring Excellence', in which the latest clinical
advances and health information technology are leveraged for the
benefit of patients across the country, are just one of many examples
of this leadership. RL Solutions is honored to play a role in Trinity's
ongoing commitment to patient safety."
