Clarity Group, Inc. Announces Launch of Portal 2.0, the Next Generation of the Healthcare SafetyZone Portal

Clarity Group, Inc. has released its new version of the Healthcare SafetyZone® Portal. Portal 2.0.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 22, 2010 -- Clarity Group, Inc., a leading provider of healthcare risk, quality and patient safety software and consulting services, announced today that it has launched its new 2.0 version of the Healthcare SafetyZone® Portal ("Portal")

The Portal is Clarity's web-based solution to electronic event reporting and data management, which have become necessities in all healthcare systems/provider organizations focused on patient safety. The Portal, which was created in 2003 by Clarity's development team, provides its users with a streamlined data collection system that is populated by user-defined fields so that users know they are collecting and reporting on the information that is of value to them. Also built into the Portal is a powerful notification engine that allows for a real-time access to the data for immediate follow-up and consultation. The system is HIPAA compliant and is set up to your exact specifications, from the questions being asked to what information is seen by those doing follow-up. Kim Reed, IT Manager for Clarity Group and lead developer of Portal 2.0 says, "The Portal gives our clients the ability to collect not only patient safety events of falls and medication errors, but is used broadly to manage such areas as patient complaints, infection control events, equipment failures and security events. The Portal enables each client to determine the events it wants to collect and how it wants to collect and follow-up on the information provided."

Since 2003, Clarity has worked with its Portal clients to enhance and to ensure that the Portal has adapted to the needs of the users. Kim Reed says, "The Portal 2.0 was a complete rework of the original system. While the main functionality and user friendly interface has stayed very much intact, we have rebuilt the inner workings of the system to provide the end user with a more advanced analysis and graphing features as well as a more refined look and feel."

Built on the latest development platform, Portal 2.0 also offers a much more comprehensive set of administrative level capabilities that allow the administrators at the individual facilities to truly control what data is being collected, who is being notified of that data and how it gets reported back out from the system.

With an ever growing list of hospitals/facilities using the Portal, Clarity has a rich pool of resources to assist in development. "We really work with our clients to ask them what features they would like to see in Portal 2.0. From the beginning, the Portal has been designed with the users in mind. With all the feedback we received during the development stage, Portal 2.0 genuinely is a system that was built by the users to work the way they want to work," states Craig Russell, Vice President of Information Services and Products at Clarity.

Since its introduction in 2003, there has not been a single facility that has stopped using the Portal once they've started. Portal 2.0 is currently being rolled out into new healthcare systems across the nation and is being upgraded in all of the existing users throughout the first two quarters of 2010.
