Congestive Heart Failure

Improving the quality of timely medical interventions associated with CHF exacerbation can improve patient outcomes.

Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) is a common chronic medical condition that is associated with complications and high mortality rates. This CHF analytic clinical solution will provide the necessary data elements clinically recommended to treat CHF exacerbation.

Congestive heart failure occurs when the heart function is unable to provide sufficient blood flow to the body. CHF hospital visits incur 4.4% mortality and 60% readmission rate. 5.1 million people in the United States have heart failure and about half die within five years of diagnosis.

This solution utilizes analytics to actually affect patient quality of care and clinical outcomes. It enables the business and clinicians to access appropriate information at appropriate times resulting in reductions in CHF mortality, length of stay, and administration improvements to timely measurements and follow-up appointments.

The program tracks the times of which medical interventions are performed. This data will help to identify potential barriers and trends in treatment plans once CHF exacerbation treatment begins The improvement of CHF exacerbation treatment workflows impacts notable hospital KPI’s such as length of stay, readmissions, and mortality rates. Improved weight management, line management, ambulation, and fluid management.

Patient Cohort - Acute hospital encounters for patients with congestive heart failure.

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 70 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
