Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Improve results and cost savings with our COPD solution

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) makes it difficult for patients to breathe easily. Exacerbation of COPD including worsening emphysema and chronic bronchitis (two main types of COPD) can be costly and have grave outcomes for patients. Our solution helps support clinicians to manage COPD patient populations by providing analytics around preventative care and treatment of COPD.

  • Ambulatory (Preventative Care Management) Metrics
    • Spirometry testing performed annually.
    • Short term and long term bronchodilators medication management.
    • Access to pulmonary specialists
    • Timely appointments to address COPD management with PCP’s and Pulmonologist.
  • Exasperated COPD in Acute inpatient
    • Spirometry performed.
    • Inhaled Bronchodilators and Steroid medication management.
    • Chest X-ray performed upon admission and routine Xrays performed.
    • Routine Blood Gases to monitor oxygenation levels.
    • Routine Blood Chemistry monitoring.
    • Monitor for over-utilization of labs.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) also includes outcomes for Exacerbated conditions

Patient Cohort -Acute hospital and ambulatory encounters for patients with pulmonary disorders.

Step 1: Assess

  • Collaboratively set goals and objectives to deliver required outcomes for finalization for the program.
  • Identify and assess criteria for calculating a Return on Investment for the program.

Step 2: Examine and analyze approximately 30 relevant data points

  • Workflows analysis for data points include – clinical documentation, flowsheets, Best Practice Alerts, Medication Administrations, Navigators, Smart forms, ADT
  • Identify discrete data points to examine for data inconsistencies.
  • Optimize the workflow for process improvement based on Best Practices.
  • Define the necessary documentation standards to reduce data inconsistencies.
  • Order sets and groups to provide for the right care at the right time.

Step 3: Orchestrate, Blend & Synthesize

  • Coordinate EHR optimization to help Physicians, Specialists, Care Providers and Care Mangers.
  • Enable & organize to unlock the current data infrastructure based on data elements to implement a governed approach to analytics based on established project/program objectives and goals

Step 4: Optimize (user behavior analytics from above icon group)

  • Help validate the workflows and train end users during the acceptance and transitory phase to help drive adoption.
  • Suggest and recommend further refinement, if needed, based on specific organizational needs.

Step 5: Adopt

  • Provide Visualizations from extended data analytics infrastructure to help sponsors and committees drive the outcome objectives and goals.
  • Provide analytics for Clinical Efficiency teams to help derive the most value from adherence to shared baseline protocols (clinical guidelines for acute or chronic disease management), if applicable
