Top-Ranked Henry Ford Health System Chooses RASMAS Recall Management Service

Innovative Health System to Streamline Recall Processes Using the Risk and Safety Management Alert System (RASMAS)

Falls Church, VA, January 10, 2007 --( Mitretek Systems is pleased to announce the addition of Henry Ford Health System to its list of prominent healthcare organizations using RASMAS to automate their recall processes.

RASMAS is a web-based subscription service that alerts healthcare personnel when recalls or safety notices are issued for products found in hospitals. Unique management and workflow tools dramatically reduce the amount of time that passes between when a hospital receives notification of an alert and the time it takes to remove potentially harmful products from use. Detailed work history and real-time reports give management centralized oversight of the alert management process on an organization-wide basis.

“RASMAS gives us a comprehensive view of all of the recalls and alerts that are being handled at Henry Ford,” states James O’Connor, Henry Ford’s Vice President, Supply Chain Management. “This insight is invaluable because it allows us to communicate recall information consistently and accurately to our customers throughout our many hospitals and clinics.”

“Henry Ford Health System is known for its pioneering spirit and its quality healthcare,” says Clay Chase, RASMAS National Sales Manager. “Henry Ford’s decision to adopt RASMAS to streamline its recall management processes is an excellent example of how this top-ranked hospital combines innovation and technology to support its mission of patient safety and quality.”
