Parrish Medical Center Chooses Noblis’ RASMAS to Streamline Medical Recall Processing
July 14, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsNoblis announced today that Parrish Medical Center (PMC), Titusville, Fla., has chosen to use the Risk And Safety Management Alert System to transform its product recall management operations.
RASMAS is a web-based product recall management service that improves the way hospitals receive, track and manage product alerts and recalls. As a RASMAS subscriber, Parrish joins a large community of hospitals and healthcare organizations throughout the United States and Canada that rely on RASMAS to deliver recall notices and expedite the processes involved with the removal of recalled products. Subscribers report that using RASMAS reduces alert-processing time by up to 80 percent and dramatically decreases the number of days it takes to remove potentially harmful products from use.
According to Sheryl O’Connor, PMC director of Risk Management, "This system enables us to review recalls and alerts at a glance from the various agencies and manufacturing companies from which Noblis receives them. It helps us be proactive to prevent adverse patient outcomes." O'Connor went on to say, "Because Noblis keeps everything current and up to date, it is much easier to manage recalls and alerts and provides an easy tracking system so PMC can stay on top of them."
"Parrish Medical Center’s choice to use RASMAS to improve patient safety exemplifies their commitment to the community and to their stated goal of creating life-enhancing environments for patients, families and staff," said Noblis President and CEO Lydia Waters Thomas, Ph.D. "We are pleased to welcome Parrish to the RASMAS community."
