PROFESSIONAL SERVICES & SOLUTIONS
You have converted your stacks of records to digital and are using the latest in EMR technology, but you still cannot make the data work for you. Our services focus on three core areas that not only transform your data, but provide clear insights and processes that equip your team for years to come.
The process in which drugs are prepared or dispensed efficiently within the pharmacy is difficult to accomplish. Changes in patient circumstances or drug expiration can result in a high rate of waste. The overall cost of waste can be hidden from pharmacies due to inadequacies in the EMR reporting and ability to tie a specifically prepared drug to the specific use for a patient.
Through the use of analytics and targeting areas of opportunity, more insight to waste causes can result in cost reduction. Quality and safety are at the forefront of implementation. Reducing costs and measuring whether the drugs were available when they should have been, ensures that an urgent request from nursing would not be needed.
Effective harms reduction begins with early identification. However, harms identification can be delayed as a result of the burden of manual entry on clinicians. We understand the most valuable place your clinicians can be is at the patient's side.
Analytic services that mine EMR and transaction data to measure key data elements and events that are required to identify a patient as a Hospital Acquired Infection candidate. Built on a comprehensive data warehouse of record data, our team is able to take the burden off of your clinicians.
Our team doesn't stop at simply telling you what happened in the past, but goes beyond by stacking advanced analytic models to accurately predict harms before they occur.
