Bon Secours Health System Adopts Quantros Safety and Quality Solutions

Leading Not-for-Profit Health System to Support Culture of Patient Safety with Real-Time Event Management and PSO Protection from Quantros

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Quantros, a leading provider of data management, decision support and clinical business intelligence solutions for the healthcare industry, today announced that Bon Secours Health System has adopted Quantros software and services solutions to support its patient safety initiatives. Bon Secours is one of the largest not-for-profit health care providers on the East Coast, with more than 30 facilities and 21,000 employees across seven states.

“Quantros has the technology solutions and clinical expertise to help us maintain the safest possible care environment for our patients and residents,” said Sherry Brunner, Vice President of Risk and Insurance Services for Bon Secours Heath System.

Bon Secours will implement Quantros Safety and Risk Management (SRM), a comprehensive Web-based event reporting, tracking, monitoring and workflow management solution. Quantros SRM™ generates the information healthcare organizations use to reduce the instance and impact of preventable medical errors. Bon Secours will also adopt Quantros Feedback Manager™ and Disruptive Event Manager™, two additional products within the SRM Product Family.

“By providing immediate access to critical event information across our health system,” said Brunner, “Quantros SRM allows us to identify safety issues and track interventions in real time.”

Bon Secours Joins Quantros Patient Safety Center

In addition to implementing Quantros software solutions, Bon Secours will join the Quantros Patient Safety Center (QPSC), a national, federally-listed patient safety organization (PSO) that affords participating healthcare organizations federal protection for their safety event data. PSOs help healthcare organizations improve patient safety by enabling participants to collaborate and measure performance against their peers within a legally protected environment.

As a QPSC participant, Bon Secours will leverage additional benefits from the Quantros community, including collaboration with Quantros domain experts and access to aggregate, de-identified comparative data from more than 800 facilities that also use the Quantros SRM incident reporting system.

“Managing event data can be time-consuming, and in some cases confusing for an integrated health system spanning seven states,” said Brunner. “The Quantros Patient Safety Center not only gives us the system-wide legal protection of a national PSO, but it seamlessly integrates with our RMIS software to dramatically improve reporting.”

“Bon Secours is well known for its extensive commitment to patient safety,” said Sanjaya Kumar, MD, President and CEO of Quantros. “By providing solutions that put the right information into the right hands at the right time, Quantros will help Bon Secours deliver the highest quality of care.”
