East Jefferson General Hospital Adopts Pavisse™ To Manage Patient Safety, Privacy And Other Compliance-Related Incidents

METAIRE, La. and SAN FRANCISCO, July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- East Jefferson General Hospital, a 420-bed Nurse Magnet hospital in Metairie, La.,  and RGP Healthcare™, a division of Resources Global Professionals (Nasdaq: RECN), today jointly announced that East Jefferson is making a major commitment to enhancing patient well-being and satisfaction through its adoption of Pavisse™, a unique health IT system that manages patient safety, privacy and other compliance-related incidents. East Jefferson is the first Louisiana hospital to adopt Pavisse.

" East Jefferson is committed to promotion of patient safety and satisfaction," said East Jefferson Chief Quality Officer Ruby Brewer. "We conducted a thorough review of available incident management systems and determined that Pavisse was the right system to leverage our patient safety initiatives."

Developed by RGP Healthcare, Pavisse is an end-to-end incident management solution that helps hospitals report, manage and remediate potential violations of any pertinent regulation or standard. For instance, a hospital might mislabel medication or not have the right surgical equipment. Pavisse captures incident data and provides required reports to multiple patient safety organizations and state agencies on demand. Pavisse also helps healthcare organizations customize workflow, data collection, analysis and reporting to meet specific needs as well as eliminate complex data transfers and double data entry.

"Pavisse gives our hospital a better and more efficient method for analyzing incidents and implementing corrective actions," Brewer added.  "This reduces paperwork and allows our staff to spend more time caring for patients."

Said RGP Healthcare President Radgia Cook: "We are delighted that East Jefferson selected Pavisse. East Jefferson has already set high standards for patient care, and we look forward to helping it continue to improve safety and efficacy for the people of the greater New Orleans area."

Pavisse is the latest in a series of cost-effective and innovative technologies East Jefferson is using to promote better patient care.
