REPORTS:  
RWHC has developed clear, concise, and at-a-glance reports so that you and your stakeholders can easily identify areas of strong performance as well as opportunities for improvement.  No need to wade through pages of data you will never use.  Many of our reports are online, generated “just in time” for you and by you! Whether you want broad indexing or drill-down capability, RWHC has the reports you need!


QI CONSULTING:
Does your QA or QI program feel the DRIP syndrome:  Data Rich, Information Poor? Moving your data from collection to analysis to improvement in systems and processes is the recipe for transforming care at the bedside.  Our staff know the conversations about small volumes and best practices. We also know that smaller hospitals have unique opportunities for change and growth at a pace not possible in larger facilities.

Positioning your program for inclusion into your hospital’s strategic goals is vital. Knowing where you have been in patient safety, quality of care, and satisfaction can play a key role in setting a course for the future.

A great quality program engages discussion by executives, physicians, and stakeholders. It evokes the imagination and innovation of bedside caregivers, who know and can do the best. Presenting your data is just one part of the puzzle.

While RWHC’s Quality Indicators Program may not be the glitziest package you will see as you shop for a vendor, our staff provides a level of service, support, and value that will exceed your expectations. 

RWHC provides many other services that can help your hospital provide more of the factors that make patient care better, and our hospitals better places to work. Please look at the other programs that are offered here at RWHC.  Then call us to discuss current pricing and packages that meet your hospital’s needs.
