VigiLanz Supports Program that Reduces Rate of Acute-Kidney Injury

VigiLanz Supports Innovative New Approach at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital

Nephrotoxic medications are critical for many patients. Unfortunately, they can also sometimes lead to acute-kidney injury in pediatric patients. To address this problem, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center created a complex algorithm to identify patients at risk. The program has led to a 40 percent reduction in AKIs.

VigiLanz supports the program by monitoring patient datawith a complex set of exposure criteria and alerting providers in near real-time if a patient has been exposed to nephrotoxins. It also lets providers know if injury occurs.
