ECRI Institute Awarded U.S. Air Force Contract

August 24, 2007 — ECRI Institute, an independent nonprofit organization that researches the best approaches to improving patient care, announced that it has been awarded a new contract by the U.S. Air Force to deploy ECRI Institute’s Alerts Tracker, a Web-based, automated hazard and recall alert management system, at 80 Air Force facilities worldwide.

Alerts Tracker, utilizing results from ECRI Institute investigations; medical device, drug, and recall information culled from ECRI Institute’s extensive databases; and the FDA, manufacturers, and other sources, electronically distributes alerts directly to appropriate staff in each facility.

Use of Alerts Tracker reportedly ensures hazard and recall alerts don’t slip through the cracks by enabling organizations to easily monitor staff actions, speed up facility response time, and quickly administer required reports.
