Industry Use Cases
Improving Patient Care Through Analytics Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)
With the rapid growth and use of advanced electronic health record (EHR) systems, this has produced an abundance of data previously unavailable for analysis. Currently many health organizations have reporting systems for operational key performance indicators (KPIs) and regulatory metrics and data warehouse systems for analytics. However, using this increasing information as meaningful knowledge to increase quality of care remains a challenge.
Improving Patient Care Through Analytics Clinical Quality – Blood Utilization
The use of advanced electronic health record (EHR) systems has grown rapidly in the United States. This has created an abundance of data previously unavailable for analysis. Many Health organizations have advanced and now have reporting systems for operational key performance indicators (KPIs), regulatory metrics and data warehouse systems for analytics. However, using this information as meaningful knowledge to increase and target those areas of concerns regarding quality of care still remains a challenge.
POKE – Using Analytics to Reduce Patient Harm
Major events and surgeries are not the only sources of trauma during a hospital encounter. Many small, less invasive events such as shots, line placements, blood draws, and imaging studies happen throughout a patient’s hospital stay. Many of these less traumatic events have the potential to negatively impact patient outcomes by increasing the risk of hospital-acquired infections through skin invasions and exposure to organisms, reducing the patient experience by causing pain and frustration, increasing cost and causing other complications.
Clinical Program – Sepsis
Septic shock occurs when organ injury from infection leads to dangerously low blood pressure and abnormalities in cellular metabolism. Severe sepsis and septic shock have one of the highest rates of hospital mortality, with estimates ranging from 25 to over 50%.
