East Jefferson General Hospital Adopts New Health IT System

East Jefferson General HospitalEast Jefferson General Hospital in Metairie has announced the adoption of the health IT system Pavisse™, an RGP Healthcare software, to enhance patient well-being and satisfaction. The system manages patient safety, privacy and other compliance-related incidents.

The hospital is the first in the state to adopt Pavisse. It’s a 420-bed Nurse Magnet hospital that is acquiring a number of cost-effective and innovative technologies the benefit patients and the overall hospital system.

“East Jefferson is committed to promotion of patient safety and satisfaction,” said East Jefferson Chief Quality Officer Ruby Brewer. “We conducted a thorough review of available incident management systems and determined that Pavisse was the right system to leverage our patient safety initiatives.”

RGP Healthcare developed Pavisse as an end-to-end incident management soluton. For example, if a hospital mislabels medications or doesn’t have the right surgical equipment, Pavisse captures and reports the data. The system also helps healthcare organizations customize workflow, data collection, analysis and reporting.

“Pavisse gives our hospital a better and more efficient method for analyzing incidents and implementing corrective actions,” Brewer added. “This reduces paperwork and allows our staff to spend more time caring for patients.” Said RGP Healthcare President Radgia Cook: “We are delighted that East Jefferson selected Pavisse. East Jefferson has already set high standards for patient care, and we look forward to helping it continue to improve safety and efficacy for the people of the greater New Orleans area.”
