Oakwood Healthcare selects RL Solutions as partner for infection control and prevention


RL Solutions, makers of innovative and easy-to-use healthcare quality and safety software, today announced that Oakwood Healthcare has selected RL Solutions as its partner for infection control and prevention. A long-time client, Oakwood is currently using RL Solutions products for risk management, patient feedback and medical claims management.

Oakwood Healthcare System is one of the most comprehensive healthcare delivery systems in southeastern Michigan. With almost 1,300 beds, it provides care to about 1 million people in 35 communities. With all of those patients comes an increased risk for infection, which makes Infection MonitorPro (IMPro) an ideal solution. It helps infection preventionists and infection control practitioners (IPs) prevent the spread of healthcare-acquired infections by performing realtime surveillance of hospital systems.

"IMPro lets our infection control staff share information across multiple sites, which is all the more important when your facilities span a 50 mile radius." says Sara Atwell, Chief Quality and Patient Safety Officer, Oakwood Healthcare System. "And the fact that it is integrated with our existing hospital systems and RL Solutions software is an added bonus."

"As a national quality leader, Oakwood was one of the first healthcare systems in southeast Michigan to make detailed quality information available on its website more than two years ago," says Sanjay Malaviya, president and CEO of RL Solutions. "It is forward-thinking decisions like this that make Oakwood a champion of care not only in its region but across the nation as well. We are honored to have them as a client."
