New enhancements include mobile file management, support for Android and customized mobile event reporting forms
ANAHEIM, CA, Oct. 27th, 2014 /CNW/ - RL Solutions, creators of easy-to-use healthcare quality and safety software, announced today the new addition of mobile functionality to RL6 that allows healthcare organizations to better report, manage and administer incidents and patient feedback on the go, from any Android or iOS device. This latest update expands on the mobile submission capabilities already available, allowing administrators to manage submitted files and create custom mobile submission forms based on the needs of their organization.
With RL6:Mobile, hospital staff can submit patient feedback and incidents at the point of occurrence by using their smartphone or tablet. Leveraging the features found in today's mobile devices, users can quickly document the details of an event by capturing photos with the camera or recording information with the built-in voice recorder. Once an incident is submitted, it enters normal hospital workflows set up by the RL Solutions system administrator. By bringing event reporting capabilities to the mobile device, organizations can engage all staff in patient safety.
With mobile file management, administrators of RL6 can now access additional functionality that was previously only available on the desktop, including viewing file summaries, flagging important files and assigning follow-ups. Through advanced security functionality, only those authorized to view submitted files on a mobile device will have the ability to do so.
With customizable forms, it is now possible for healthcare organizations to specify the information that front-line staff must capture on their mobile devices. This new functionality will save administrators time by ensuring that all relevant information is captured at the point of occurrence, thereby reducing the need for follow up, and making it easier to manage the file upon submission.
"When we released our mobile functionality a year ago, our primary objective was to give healthcare organizations the ability to extend patient safety reporting to all staff," said Sanjay Malaviya, President & CEO, RL Solutions. "We have been humbled by how extensively our clients adopted the mobility and pushed the need for more devices and more features. Now, we are excited to bring that functionality to Android users, as well as new capabilities that will allow our clients to do much more on the go."
The RL6 app is available in the App Store. New features and Android capabilities will be released in early 2015. Demos will be provided during the American Society for Healthcare Risk Management (ASHRM) Conference taking place in Anaheim, CA, from October 26th - 29th, 2014, at the Anaheim Convention Center.
