CORK, Ireland and WASHINGTON, March 17 /PRNewswire/ --- EHA Soft Solutions (EHA), an Ireland-based provider of advanced software solutions to the healthcare, oil and gas, telecommunications and other industry segments, today announced that it has been selected by Quality Employment Credentialing (QEC) to provide the organization with customized automated risk management and mitigation software. EHA will first implement the software at QEC test sites in Pennsylvania, New York and Texas before deploying the solution nationwide.
The news coincides with a business reception today in Washington, DC hosted by Enterprise Ireland, the Government Agency responsible for driving leadership and growth for innovative Irish companies in international markets. The event was one of several associated with a trade mission to the U.S. led by Ireland's Prime Minister, Brian Cowen.
QEC was formed because increasing risk and liability, identity theft, and the high costs to hire healthcare providers have become a growing problem for hospitals, nursing homes, staffing agencies and other employers of the healthcare workforce. QEC intends to cut costs and reduce risk to the industry and consumers by introducing a new standard of hiring best-practices. The company's approach replaces the inefficient protocols of piecing together hiring elements such as background checks, drug screening and competency testing, with a new streamlined model that compiles the information in a highly secure and independent global clearing house. The result is a new approach that substantially reduces the risk and exposure to liability of a hiring mistake.
Said, QEC chairperson, Colleen Mills, "With EHA, we have found a partner with superior software solutions that can support our goal to transform healthcare hiring practices and reduce the threat and liability associated with hiring mistakes. We're very pleased to be working with EHA."
For more than a decade, EHA has provided advanced integrated risk management systems that support regulatory guidelines, including occupational health and safety, food safety, quality and the environment. The company's software solutions are an ideal fit to support QEC's ambitious mission, according to Mike Shackleford, vice president of operations at EHA. "By significantly reducing risk and exposure to liability, the QEC system will improve overall quality of care and reduce staff turnover, meaning substantial savings for healthcare providers that are struggling with escalating costs in today's environment."
