The RASMAS solution has now been implemented throughout JHHS.
"Two days after that, the alert goes to risk management, and then to legal, ensuring visibility and action within the organization." RASMAS meets the requirements for an alert and recall process set by the Joint Commission for the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), which sets performance standards for healthcare facilities.
RASMAS has reduced workloads at JHHS by eliminating duplicate notices and sending each of the coordinators only those alerts that apply to their domain.
Next, Mitretek clinical staff review and research the data before releasing it to their RASMAS subscribers.
The subscriber organization can customize its use of RASMAS with filters to create a centralized or decentralized approach to information dissemination and to control access to drill-down information on actions taken.
We have had tangible and intangible results from the use RASMAS. Overall, we have:
* Been able to manage all alerts within the system in a paperless fashion, including those received in paper format from manufacturers, since we can submit directly to RASMAS.
Fortunately, we were able to take immediate corrective action and also share this notice with other RASMAS users.
