Rideout Health Deploys Pavisseâ¿¢ To Optimize Patient Care And Safety

SACRAMENTO, Calif. and SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Rideout Health, a non-profit community-based healthcare system, and RGP Healthcare™, a division of Resources Global Professionals (NASDAQ: RECN), today jointly announced that Rideout has selected and is implementing Pavisse™,  a cutting-edge technology for monitoring and ensuring patient safety.

Rideout operates facilities and services located throughout Yuba, Sutter and Nevada counties. They include acute-care hospitals Rideout Memorial and Fremont Medical Center; the Heart Center at Rideout; the Rideout Cancer Center, affiliated with UC Davis Medical Center; outpatient primary and specialty clinics and a host of ancillary services, including senior living services, home health, hospice and durable medical equipment.

Pavisse, developed by RGP Healthcare, is a new comprehensive incident management solution designed to help hospitals manage patient safety, patient privacy and other compliance-related functions across the enterprise.

"We will be one of the first hospitals in the Sacramento region to deploy this software," said Istikram Qaderi, M.D., Senior Vice President and Chief Quality Officer at Rideout.

"We'll first deploy Pavisse at Rideout Memorial and once the system is running smoothly, we'll look to using it at other locations in our organization to help us continually monitor and improve the safety and quality of our patient care, which is always our number one priority."

Dr. Qaderi is responsible for planning and directing Rideout's programs for quality, patient safety and satisfaction, including infection prevention and control; analytics and performance excellence; risk management; care coordination/case management; and compliance with TJC and CMS standards and conditions of participation as well as state and federal regulations.

Dr. Qaderi, a former surgeon, shifted his career focus in recent years to helping healthcare organizations work with doctors and other staff to align clinical care and patient-centered services in programs for performance improvement. He has spoken and published extensively on topics such as quality, physician and staff engagement, safety, patient satisfaction, performance excellence and culture change.
