TORONTO, Nov. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - RL Solutions, creators of innovative and easy to use healthcare quality and safety software, announced today that Newton-Wellesley Hospital of Boston, MA, has selected RL6 to provide automated infection surveillance throughout the organization.
Recently ranked the 16th best hospital in Massachusetts by U.S. News & World Report, Newton-Wellesley will use RL6:Infection to conduct real-time surveillance of hospital systems to help reduce the spread of HAI and ultimately provide a safer environment for patients.
