Aurora Health Care in the US has selected the Peminic Safety Suite to improve health safety and to improve communication and data sharing between patient relation, risk and safety teams.

Peminic eSurveillance, which connects to electronic health records, will identify near misses and adverse events that require further action.

The safety suite will help Aurora implement prevention protocols before an event occurs or intervene with mitigation strategies to activate disclosure, apology and investigative steps in a timely fashion.

The surveillance system will allow the hospital to manage the workload associated with these efforts to reduce false positives and focus on client-specific goals balanced with measured improvement.

Peminic's board chairman and CEO Charles E Leonard III said eSurveillance will improve team collaboration, better quantify risk, reduce medical errors and improve patient safety, satisfaction and loyalty.
