Providers are increasingly using healthcare analytics to monitor, analyze and drive practice changes in disease management that improve patient outcomes and quality of care.
Burlington, MA (PRWEB) March 13, 2014
Dimensional Insight, a developer of business intelligence (BI) solutions, today announced that Harm Scherpbier, M.D., vice president & chief medical information officer of Main Line Health, a Dimensional Insight customer, presented a session titled, “Does CPOE Guide Clinicians to the Best Choices? Clinical Analytics for Insulin Regimen Tracking,” last week at the National Healthcare CMO/CMIO Summit. In the session, Dr. Scherpbier discussed how Main Line Health, a community health system serving suburban Philadelphia, uses The Diver Solution™ (Diver), Dimensional Insight’s BI platform, to strengthen its diabetes regimen tracking.
The National Healthcare CMO/CMIO Summit was an invitation-only event for senior-level medical executives and solution providers. It was held March 6-7 at Red Rock Resort & Spa in Las Vegas. The agenda included keynote presentations, case studies and interactive sessions, as well as one-on-one meetings.
In his presentation, Dr. Scherpbier discussed how Main Line Health implemented computerized physician order entry (CPOE) guidelines for inpatient insulin therapies. Physicians, nonetheless, were using CPOE to build suboptimal insulin therapy order sets. Using Diver, Main Line developed an endocrinology dashboard application to analyze insulin regimen ordering patterns and correlate the choice of insulin regimen with patients’ glucose outcomes.
Main Line uses the application to give direct, physician-specific feedback, as well as target education and training to hospital physicians. Insights are used to further refine CPOE guidance so that Main Line can improve the quality of care delivered.
“We are seeing rapid growth in the application of analytics to clinical data among our healthcare customers, as clinical data becomes more widely available electronically,” said George Dealy, Dimensional Insight’s vice president of healthcare applications development. “Providers are increasingly using healthcare analytics to monitor, analyze and drive practice changes in disease management that improve patient outcomes and quality of care.”
