U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Names CareRise a Patient Safety Organization
Date:4/7/2009

NEW ORLEANS, April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- CareRise, a risk management company based in Mandeville, Louisiana, serving skilled nursing and rehab facilities, assisted living and specialty hospitals, was recently approved by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services as a Patient Safety Organization (PSO). CareRise's listing became effective April 1 and can be viewed at http://www.pso.ahrq.gov/, the website for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), which regulates PSOs.

PSOs were created by the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2005 to minimize events that adversely affect patients. PSOs are designed to improve the quality and safety of U.S. health care by encouraging health care organizations to voluntarily report and share data on patient safety events. In an effort to promote information gathering, the data is considered legally privileged, confidential and protected from discovery in litigation.

CareRise developed a unique risk management process that is aimed at reducing claims by identifying risks and facilitating corrective action. CareRise's delivery is an ongoing process, scoring hundreds of risk factors while working with facilities to improve their score, thereby mitigating high-risk areas.

"The Patient Safety Organization designation means CareRise's patented risk management system will play an even larger role in minimizing healthcare risks in nursing homes and assisted living facilities across the United States," said CareRise Founder Tim Goux. Goux founded the privately held risk management company in 2000 to offer healthcare organizations a process to prevent patient care errors by identifying the cause and formulating systems both on-site and technical to fix it.

CareRise's patented risk management system is currently available in Louisiana and California. CareRise specializes in risk management with an emphasis on quality assurance using a patented method that combines industry expertise with state-of-the art technology. CareRise risk managers work with clients on-site to reduce patient hazards and to file real-time reports with insurers each month. CareRise is based in Mandeville, Louisiana and is privately held. www.carerise.com
