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."
