📋 Appropriate Utilization

Appropriate Utilization accelerators are designed to implement best practices based ordering and administration of labs, imaging, medications and other high-cost/high-risk resources.

POKE-R stands for prevent pain and organisms from skin and catheter entry and radiology. Our Labs & Images (POKE-R) accelerator features utilization numbers for:

  • Lab draws
  • Images
  • Invasive medication administration by DRG & clinical     configuration tool

This Vancomycin accelerator tracks vanco days, creatine levels and pharmacy similar to the more expanded. Vancomycin Management Program inclusive of:

  • Pharmacy intervention
  • Kidney function
  • Therapeutic medication levels

Opioid is a high risk pain management program, classified as an epidemic by CDC. Effective prescription and administration of Narcan and Opioids are required in both an inpatient and ambulatory setting. Our utilization informatics provides ability to filter on:

  • DRG
  • Readmission
  • Length of stay
  • Mortality

Our Blood Utilization accelerator categorizes counts of blood administration units based on blood administration guidelines. Our solution categorizes blood in 5 distinct categories by provider, specialty, service, and department.

  • Category 1: Hgb less than 7 g/dL (Hct <21%)
  • Category 2: Evidence of acute bleeding with Hgb less
    than 8.5 g/dL
  • Category 3: Evidence of hemodynamic instability with
    Hgb less than 8.5 g/dL
  • Category 4: Hgb less than 8.5
  • Category 5: Any unit administered for an order that does
    not meet criteria for any of the blood categories 1
    through 4 will be in category 5. Category 5 will represent
    the units administered with no documented justification.

Managment of the central lines and foley catheters are important for patient safety. Our Lines, Drains & Airways accelerator includes informatics on:

  • How they are managed
  • Trending
  • Volume
  • Utilization by location
  • DRG

Our Ventilators accelerator tracks number of days on mechanical ventilation by location and service by DRG. Also tracks the number of patients on ventilators. Ventilator bundle performed- includes metrics such as:

  • Head of bed elevation
  • Daily sedation interruption
  • PUD prophylaxis
  • VTE prophylaxis

🏥 Ambulatory

Ambulatory accelerators are built to help you better manage chronic disease and preventative health.
