West Calcasieu Cameron Hospital (WCCH) in Louisiana, made a commitment to implement a culture of safety, focused on quality and innovation, to provide them with a competitive edge. To deliver an organization-wide program, WCCH knew they needed a comprehensive and flexible event management solution.
SOLUTION: PATIENT AND EMPLOYEE SAFETY
WCCH’s quality expansion focused on three points, core measurement management, organizing their meaningful use program and an IT infrastructure that could support key safety initiatives.
Implementing the Patient and Employee Safety application, WCCH’s IT infrastructure now had the ability to aggregate data, identify and act upon adverse events, and apply proactive and preventative measures to improve outcomes.
Creating transparency, supports WCCH’s safety culture through ease of use reporting, team enablement, and shared communication.
Serving as the primary audit and data collection tool, the application manages WCCH’s quality and safety policies and procedures, updating standards in real-time.
“With the increasing data burden on hospitals, it is imperative that we have the right systems in place to support us in our quality and safety initiatives.”
