“This is first and foremost about patient safety,” said Dan Ferguson, vice president of medical operations for Catholic Healthcare West. “We are committed to placing our patients in a safe and compassionate environment where healing can best take place. We are assured that the mobile solution offered by MercuryMD will help our clinical teams access the information they need, when they need it, to improve patient care and safety.”
