Healthcare systems across the country are equipping their healthcare providers with more patient data than ever before. While this represents significant progress, it can be difficult for physicians and other providers to turn that data into actionable information. In other words, they often lack the time and resources to sift through all of that data to gather the most meaningful insights that can be applied at the point of care.
Houston Methodist has found a solution that is leading to higher care quality and reduced costs. The health system is using a tool to provide real-time data (including cost data, as appropriate), related to patients’ medications, labs, and radiology studies—directly within providers’ clinical workflow. The tool also enables access to the state’s prescription monitoring program reports within the clinical workflow. And, it sends context-specific alerts to providers based on EMR, PMP, and VigiLanz’s clinical surveillance data.
