Verge Health Boosts RWJBarnabas Health Approach to Patient Safety

Verge Health, the industry’s leading risk management software company for hospitals and health systems, will support RWJBarnabas Health, New Jersey’s largest integrated health care delivery system, in moving closer to becoming a high-reliability health system with the full implementation of Verge’s Governance, Risk and Compliance solutions onto a single, data-driven platform.

“We’ve understood that credentialing and patient safety go hand-in-hand for years and are excited that it can all be on a single platform with Verge Health,” says John F. Bonamo MD, MS, FACOG, FACPE Executive Vice President / Chief Medical and Quality Officer for RWJBarnabas Health. “The addition of credentialing services is a key component of our Governance, Risk, and Compliance for Healthcare maturity and evolution towards becoming a high-reliability health system. “

Since 2016, Verge has provided the accreditation and regulatory, patient and employee safety, and peer review components of its enterprise software solution, the Converge Platform, to RWJBarnabas Health. With the addition of credentialing services, compliance rounding and advanced tools for the reporting of events directly through the EMR, the provider will utilize nearly the full range of the Converge Platform solution so that it can proactively manage GRC.

“While we are certainly grateful for the continued confidence RWJBarnabas Health has shown in Verge Health with an expanded view of discovery and the integration of our practitioner management platform, we’re also pleased to see them take a leadership role in looking at GRC in a more holistic way,” says Mark Crockett, MD., Chief Executive Officer for Verge Health. “The healthcare industry will not make it to the same level of high reliability as the nuclear power or airline industry until it stops organizing around the survey and starts organizing around the patient.”

Terms of the expanded contract were not disclosed. The two organizations have already begun work on integrating the additional components of the Converge platform into RWJ Barnabas, and expect completion in early 2019
