HCPro Releases Time-Saving Patient Safety Web Site

Press Releases, November 18, 2009

HCPro, Inc., a leader in assisting hospitals with meeting The Joint Commission's National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG), addressing CMS patient safety-related regulations, ensuring patient satisfaction, and improving the overall quality of healthcare, debuted its newest online resource, Patient Safety Monitor, today at www.patientsafetymonitor.com.

Patient Safety Monitor provides information, analysis, and training on critical patient safety issues. It features the Patient Safety Crosswalk, a Web-based grid that organizes state, CMS, and Joint Commission requirements by topic. Instead of searching multiple sites and publications for competing regulatory information, users will be able to efficiently access the information they need in a comparative format with the Crosswalk.

Patient Safety Monitor addresses the challenges faced by patient safety professionals in the wake of more focused 2010 NPSGs and ever-changing patient safety standards. The site also features customizable forms and tools to demonstrate compliance, a monthly newsletter focused on important trends and staff training ideas, and a blog and e-mail updates to ensure members remain current on the pressing issues in the field.

Users are encouraged to take a free 7-day trial on the new Web site by visiting www.patientsafetymonitor.com
