– Pinpoint Review(R) Enhancements Allow Hospitals and Clinicians to Provide Safer, More Efficient and Less Costly Care
Elsevier / MEDai, a leading provider of advanced clinical analytic healthcare solutions, announced today the launch of the latest version of Pinpoint Review(R), its real-time, clinical surveillance system for hospitals. The new version will feature an expanded set of clinical watch triggers, expanded core measure alerts and three new predictions: ICU Admission Prediction, Length of Stay Prediction and Mortality Prediction.
Pinpoint Review generates predictions for acute-care patients, focusing on the likelihood of a patient developing a complication, contracting a healthcare-acquired infection or being readmitted within 30 days of discharge, while patients are still in the hospital and there is time to adjust care to avoid a negative outcome.
With the expansion of Pinpoint Review’s new predictions, care givers are able to enhance their efforts in proactive care management. Pinpoint Review unlocks the power of clinical and administrative hospital data by utilizing predictive technologies to turn data into actionable information. Empowering today’s hospitals with the ability to predict whether or not a patient will be admitted to the ICU or higher intensity care unit, a predicted length of hospital stay or patient expiration goes a long way in driving down the cost of care and brings a proactive approach to quality improvement.
Pinpoint Review addresses the increasing pressure on hospitals from entities such as the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations to deliver a higher quality of care and fewer medical errors. Pinpoint Review alerts care providers to patients at risk for developing several of the conditions that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) no longer reimburse.
Additional Elsevier / MEDai tools include Pinpoint Quality(R) and Pinpoint Compliance(R). Pinpoint Quality provides robust retrospective outcomes analysis that helps hospitals and physicians quickly identify areas for improvement, making it possible for clinicians to improve performance, outcomes, patient satisfaction, efficiency and cost savings by understanding the drivers of the negative outcomes and allowing them to compare their performance against national standard benchmarks. Pinpoint Compliance(R) provides a simple, time-saving Web-based solution for organizations to collect, report and submit data to the Joint Commission, CMS, and other regulatory reporting agencies, while participating in initiatives related to accreditation, quality improvement and compliance.
