Integrated Healthcare Holdings Adopts Pavisse™ to Enhance Patient Safety at its Four Hospitals in Orange County, Calif.
SANTA ANA and SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF. - Oct. 3, 2013 - Integrated Healthcare Holdings Inc. (IHHI) (OTCBB: IHCH), which owns and operates four hospitals in Orange County, and RGP Healthcare™, a division of Resources Global Professionals (NASDAQ: RECN), today jointly announced that IHHI is adopting Pavisse™, a cutting-edge health IT system that enhances patient safety to proactively deal with life threatening issues and compliance issues before they occur.
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.
"Pavisse's comprehensive incident management system will help us create a safer environment for patients in our four hospitals," said Dan Brothman, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of IHHI. For example, Brothman said Pavisse can help preemptively identify gaps in patient safety practices which will allow IHHI to improve existing procedures to ensure the utmost attention is given to patient care.
Brothman also noted that Pavisse will help IHHI identify and address incidents in real time. "We have a responsibility to our patients to promptly resolve any concerns; Pavisse aids us in that area. If we are experiencing problems on the night shift with patient safety on the third floor, Pavisse will alert us to the event, analyze the root cause and allow us to take immediate corrective action with our staff to educate them and fix the problem," he said.
RGP Healthcare President Radgia Cook said, "IHHI is committed to providing the highest-quality patient care. We are excited that such a great organization has selected Pavisse to help it achieve its goals."
IHHI (OTCBB: IHCH) owns and operates four hospitals in Orange County, Calif.: Western Medical Center Santa Ana (the oldest hospital in Orange County and one of three trauma centers in the area), Western Medical Center Anaheim, Coastal Communities Hospital and Chapman Medical Center. The hospitals have a total of 770 beds, 2787 employees, and 1725 active physicians.
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 (PSO) 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.
