St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System to Manage Recalls Using RASMAS
May 04, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsNoblis announced today that St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System will automate its product recall management operations using the Risk And Safety Management Alert System (RASMAS).
St. Luke’s, a faith-based, non-profit healthcare provider, will receive daily safety alert notices and recall information from RASMAS. If any recalled or flawed products are found, St. Luke’s staff will use RASMAS’ workflow tools to manage the alert and track all of the actions they take to remedy the problem. A complete work history will be available to enhance JCAHO and FDA compliance.
"Noblis is pleased to welcome St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System to the RASMAS community," said RASMAS National Sales Manger, Clay Chase. "Some of the first benefits that we expect St. Luke’s to gain from using RASMAS are increased time savings, greater alert management efficiencies, and increased cross-department collaboration."
St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System joins a growing number of Texas hospitals including Christus Health, Memorial Hermann Healthcare System, Texas Health Resources, The Methodist Hospital System, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler, and University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, that have chosen to utilize RASMAS to reduce the costs of managing recalls and to improve patient care.
