CatalyzeCare is a virtual community for healthcare professionals, researchers, and educators to share resources and collaborate on innovative ideas for transforming the healthcare delivery system. On CatalyzeCare, communities can be formed, tools and resources tested, discussions held, and ideas shared and developed. This hub provides the essential framework for collaboration and dissemination for any healthcare professional or researcher. Importantly, CatalyzeCare is a HIPAA aligned platform.
Patient Safety Organization
The Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2015 was developed and enacted in response to the Institute of Medicine report, “To Err is Human”, which generated national concern with the number of preventable medical errors that were occurring. By providing privilege and confidentiality protections to hospitals working with Patient Safety Organizations (PSO), the act was intended to promote shared learning to enhance quality and safety nationally. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is responsible for the regulation of PSOs. RCHE was designated a PSO in 2015, one of only two Indiana-based PSOs.
RCHE has established this compliance policy to ensure that all staff, faculty, and researchers involved with identifiable health records are properly informed. This policy shall serve as a guideline for the handling of data, security, and the appointment of those to administer HIPAA-related documentation.
RCHE is housed in the Gerald D. and Edna E. Mann Hall located in the heart of Discovery Park, Purdue’s innovative interdisciplinary research and enterprise hub. The building provides significant, secure office and collaboration space for the center’s faculty, staff and students. The building’s contemporary, flexible design fosters an environment conducive to interdisciplinary collaboration to address grand challenges that have significant impact on Indiana, the nation and the world.
CatalyzeCare.org, RCHE’s national home for our Infusion Pump Informatics (IPI) community, our newly launched REMEDI Central community and our HIPAA aligned data repository, contains several big data sources.
