3 Innovative Solutions for Improving Quality and Patient Safety

To help your hospital or health system increase the quality and safety of its patient care, look to the following solutions that have earned the exclusive endorsement of the American Hospital Association (AHA).


Hospitals selecting a product or service with the AHA Endorsement can be confident it has met the AHA’s highest standards. Read below about three AHA Endorsed solutions that will help you enhance quality and patient safety.


Secure Messaging Solution

Imprivata logoHealth care organizations today struggle with pagers and outdated communication technologies that delay the delivery of care while impacting providers’ productivity and satisfaction. As a result, many providers turn to their own or hospital-owned mobile devices for communication, which hospitals find difficult to protect against security breaches that compromise electronic patient health information (ePHI).

Fast and easy-to-use, the Imprivata Cortext secure messaging platform from Imprivata streamlines clinical workflow efficiency and enhances staff satisfaction by enabling care team collaboration, mass communications and provider-to-patient communications inside and outside hospitals.

Quality Reporting and Management Solution

With Medisolv’s ENCOR Quality Reporting and Management software, hospitals and physicians can efficiently measure and report all their quality data to meet evolving regulatory requirements, improve performance and patient safety, and deliver value-based care. The comprehensive solution supports all three types of quality measures — abstraction, claims and eCQMs — and boasts a 95 percent client retention rate.
