Using information to improve outcomes in the healthcare industry

Empower healthcare workers to make the correct decision every time, wherever they are.

The Challenge

The sheer volume of healthcare data available to practitioners can often feel more overwhelming than helpful.

Over the past few years, the growth and implementation of electronic medical records and related clinical applications clearly show the importance of IT in the healthcare industry. Healthcare providers continuously work to improve quality of care and reduce operational costs, and are searching high and low for a solution that will help them do this.

The sheer volume of healthcare data available to practitioners can often feel more overwhelming than helpful. Data streams into your hospital at rapid pace, and everything from patient satisfaction surveys, staff schedules and medical equipment tracking to medical device outputs and disparate EMR systems piles up and starts gathering virtual dust on your servers. So how do you regain control, and move forward to improve the quality of care you provide, whilst still remaining cost effective?

Electronic health records (EHRs) offer plenty of data, including diagnoses, test results, emergency room visits, prescriptions, demographic information and information about previous hospitalizations. This data is incredibly valuable, but it's far too much for doctors and nurses to trawl through manually.

The clinical language is large and full of regional terms and phrases. In some cases, the same term can have different meanings or there can be several meanings associated with one term, depending on the context in which the doctor records it.

Some large healthcare organizations operate in multiple countries or parts of the world and need information to be presented in the local language to ensure every user in every country is catered for.

The Solution

Quickly integrate and analyze healthcare data from EHRs, clinical and financial systems so you can stay on top and provide excellent care to your patients and staff.

DecisionPoint is a business intelligence system that helps you get information to workers on the front-line of your organization, enabling you to combine, collate and share medical data from different systems so everyone in the hospital or healthcare group can move together towards shared goals. It is more important than ever to put your data to work for you to drive improvements in patient outcomes and cost reductions, and to empower caregivers on the floor. DecisionPoint can help you create this patient-centred approach to data in your organization.

Implement wall-mounted and mobile BI apps on the hospital floor:

As well as arming doctors, nurses, administrators, shift coordinators and managers with authenticated and secure access to the information they need, you're also optimizing the flow of patients throughout the hospital. This will help improve the quality of care you provide and increase the efficiency of your organization.

Align the whole organization to your desired outcomes by blending data sources:

When you have data in many systems, it's hard to get an overview of the health of your organization. By allowing staff within your care facilities to see and understand their data, you get a single and correct version of the truth and ensure stakeholders make decisions from the same data. A solution that enables you to deliver the same information in different languages and formats is a huge bonus for healthcare providers. Together these capabilities make mistakes in data interpretation far less likely.

Always focus on the patient:

It is crucial that both medical and non-medical staff can easily understand where the organization is and where it wants to get to, to ensure everyone is pushing in the same direction. This requires information apps that are focused on a patient's situation, treatments and interactions; and that allow staff to quickly absorb high-level information, while also providing answers to second- and third-level questions without having to go back to the IT department.
