Central California 'Safety Net Hospital' Is First Public Hospital To Adopt Pavisse To Automate Incident Reporting And Remediation

"Safety and privacy violations pose risks far beyond the legal realm," added Kern Risk Manager, Eva M. Satori, CPHRM, FASHRM. "For instance, nurses were complaining our current system took too long to complete a report. Those are precious minutes not spent on patient care."

Pavisse is the latest in a series of cost-effective and innovative information technologies. Hensler, in league with CIO Bill Fawns, have pioneered at Kern to promote better patient care.

"We look forward with great pleasure to partnering with the forward-thinking team at Kern to continue to improve safety and efficacy as they care for the people of Kern County," said Cook.

About Kern Medical Center Founded in 1867, and owned and operated by the County of Kern, Kern Medical Center strives to provide the best care possible to a community of more than 850,000. Kern treats more than 16,000 inpatients annually, nearly three-quarters uninsured or Medi-Cal recipients. A designated Level II Trauma Center, the 222-bed hospital operates the only trauma center between Fresno and Los Angeles, handling approximately 43,000 emergency visits annually as well as more than 100,000 affiliated clinic visits. Affiliated with the University of California, Los Angeles, Geffen School of Medicine, Kern has trained an estimated one-third of all physicians practicing in the county and is one of the county's largest employers with 1800 employees, including three US News & World Reports "Top Doctors."

About Pavisse A highly affordable and effective incident management system, Pavisse has the unique ability to capture incident data and provide required reports to multiple patient safety organizations (PSOs) and state agencies on demand or via a set scheduling process that includes quarterly and annual report capabilities. Healthcare organizations (HCOs) can customize workflow, data collection, analysis and reporting to meet specific needs without the need for complex data transformations or double data-entry. Content-driven, Pavisse can be easily applied to potentially any type of incident management workflow. Innovative reporting capabilities provide executive dashboard overview and monitoring as well as unparalleled internal benchmarking and Pareto graphing for easy-to-understand outcomes and problem area identification. Dynamic automated workflow provides unique issue audit and corrective action plan capabilities, and the CAP Toolkit includes an extensive online archive of global best practices.

An intelligent routing module helps insure reported incidents are appropriately delegated and followed-up. It can be configured to notify the right people and assign workflow for the right incidents at the right time, helping to insure incident reporting mandates are met and the inception-to-remediation incident lifecycle managed appropriately. Circumnavigation architecture lets users move between screens within a specific issue with user-inspired considerations for ease of use and efficiency, significantly reducing the incident resolution cycle.

Other unique features include "Hold" functionality to enable authorized users to place reported incidents "on hold" to preserve data integrity, as well as a reserves module to track the true cost of incidents and associated remediation. A content-rich library includes policies and procedures, as well as a comprehensive archive of pertinent regulations and standards.
