  RGP Healthcare Launches Pavisse™ to Help Hospitals Comply with Safety and
  Privacy Regulations, Reduce Risk, and Improve Leapfrog Hospital Safety Score

Business Wire

IRVINE, Calif. & SAN FRANCISCO -- January 31, 2013

RGP Healthcare, the healthcare unit of Resources Global Professionals
(RGP)(Nasdaq: RECN), today announced the launch of Pavisse,™ a
first-of-its-kind integrated incident management solution created to help
hospitals manage all patient safety, patient privacy and other
compliance-related incidents across the enterprise.

Pavisse offers an efficient and cost-effective way for hospitals and other
healthcare organizations (HCOs) to comply with ever-changing healthcare
regulations and standards, learn from mistakes, and improve safety. Pavisse
helps HCOs track and improve compliance with patient safety regulations, HIPAA
requirements and other standards or regulations, including the Sarbanes-Oxley
Act (SOX), and manage the complaint/grievance process. It also provides
hospitals a means of improving their Leapfrog Hospital Safety Score.

“Our goal was to give healthcare providers an integrated, browser-based
compliance tool that would simplify incident management,” said RGP Healthcare
President Radgia Cook. A recognized leader in healthcare compliance solutions,
Cook led the national team of healthcare IT and compliance experts that
developed Pavisse.

“The recent move to value-based purchasing has made thorough reporting,
analysis and remediation of incidents related to heart failure, pneumonia and
other patients particularly critical,” Cook noted. “When you consider that we
provide both the software and the expertise to help hospitals improve safety
scores, and avoid Medicare and other penalties related to high readmission
rates, Pavisse virtually pays for itself. It’s so simple to use, there’s
simply no reason not to achieve full compliance.”

About Pavisse

Pavisse is an incident management software system that automates the process
of reporting potential safety and other incidents to pertinent regulatory
bodies. Robust and intuitive to use, the browser-based solution provides an
audit mechanism for compliance monitoring, and aggregates data to create
active, real-time dashboard views by incident type with embedded guidance
tips. Pavisse analytics help pinpoint areas that need improvement, and the CAP
Toolkit, a comprehensive corrective action plan methodology tailored to each
hospital’s cause-determination process, creates pathways to compliance and
improvement.

Workgroup-driven and content-rich, Pavisse comes preloaded with everything a
healthcare organization needs to effectively manage incident reporting and
compliance—including report templates, and data-mining and benchmarking
capabilities. A special Reserves module tracks the cost of incidents, risks
and remediation efforts—for example, the cost of a new Pyxis software patch to
address medication dispensing errors or the cost of new guardrails to avoid
patient falls—to enable hospitals to fully understand the cost implications of
incidents.

Users can access a content-rich archive of regulations and best practices
related to safety, privacy and other pertinent issues online 24x7. Eight hours
of free consulting per quarter are available to subscribers to help optimize
system use or develop custom safety and compliance strategies; additional
consulting hours are available at an affordable cost.

Highly affordable and available via subscription or enterprise model, Pavisse
is ideal for HCOs of any shape or size, including acute and long-term care
providers, psychiatric facilities, home-health agencies and more. And unlike
electronic health record (EHR) implementation, deployment is quick and
painless, and non-taxing to already overtaxed hospital IT resources.
