SEATTLE and SAN FRANCISCO - January 21, 2015 - The Polyclinic, one of the largest multi-specialty physician groups in the Puget Sound region, and RGP Healthcare™, a division of Resources Global Professionals (NASDAQ: RECN), today jointly announced that The Polyclinic is implementing Pavisse™, a cutting-edge incident management and patient safety system.
The Polyclinic is deploying Pavisse at its 13 medical clinics and one support facility -- including The Polyclinic Madison Center, its nine-story flagship location in downtown Seattle -- with the option of deploying Pavisse at six additional facilities in the future. The Polyclinic is physician-owned and run, and comprised of the Seattle-area's top primary care physicians, specialists and surgeons across more than two dozen medical specialties.
"After reviewing other incident reporting applications, we determined that Pavisse provides the right tools to support our focus on patient safety, efficient reporting, and continuous process improvement in all areas of patient care," said Angie Beck, Director, Clinical Quality at The Polyclinic.
Pavisse, developed by RGP Healthcare, is a new, comprehensive patient safety and peer review solution designed to help hospitals and clinics manage adverse events and other compliance-related functions across the enterprise.
"The Polyclinic is a leader in personalized healthcare that combines a comprehensive range of medical services under one roof," said RGP Healthcare President Radgia Cook. "We are delighted they chose Pavisse to help them continue to provide the very best care for their patients."
