Quantros Software Supports Commitment to Saving Lives and Reducing Risk

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 15, 2009 -- Passavant Area Hospital in Jacksonville, Ill., a 93-bed, community hospital, announced it will use the Quantros Safety and Risk Management solution (SRM), an electronic self-reporting, event tracking, monitoring and workflow management tool designed to reduce risk and support a culture of patient safety.

The hospital selected Quantros, a leading provider of safety and quality software and professional services solutions for the healthcare industry, after reviewing three vendors. The organization cited Quantros' Professional Services team, who provide clients with technical support and education, the application's user- friendly format and the reporting engine as key priorities in making the decision.

"As an organization dedicated to patient safety, we want to identify safety events in real-time and to immediately implement and monitor corrective action," said Connie Mudd, Passavant's Vice President of Quality Management.

"This helps us investigate and fix the root causes of the events," she added. "We need an easy way to enter events electronically and compile them quickly. With Quantros, we have that capability. Now the departments and quality management team can get the alert at the same time."

"Passavant Hospital's selection of Quantros SRM highlights the benefits of integrated data and workflow management and reporting, along with a team of clinical experts who support implementation and training." noted Chris Bethell, Vice President, Marketing and Product Development, Quantros, Inc. "We are pleased to have Passavant select Quantros."
