“Providers are tired of one dimensional static alerts. CareTRAK delivers contextually relevant alerts that accurately reflect the current condition of the patient,” Paul Lindeman, MD, veEDIS Clinical Systems Chief Medical Information Officer.
Plantation, Fla. (PRWEB) April 10, 2015
veEDIS Clinical Systems has introduced CareTRAK™, a unique, lightweight, EMR-agnostic tool that identifies patients at the highest risk for readmission and/or a bad outcome and instantly notifies any “stakeholder.”
Like an anti-virus program working in the background, CareTRAK consumes clinically relevant data from the companion EMR, including nursing and physician documentation, laboratory results, and orders, and runs this through a library of evidenced-based, “multi-dimensional” risk algorithms. When risk is detected, CareTRAK automatically generates meaningful, actionable alerts to the clinician at the point of care, as well as custom messages to any 3rd party stakeholder via text message or email.
CareTRAK’s cloud-based deployment with a central, unified database also allows data analysis across multiple facilities and across multiple patients, providing a true syndromic surveillance functionality. In addition, the tool provides the ability to create new risk algorithms quickly and easily, allowing a facility to focus on risk unique to their patient population, making it ideal for an academic or teaching facility.
Additionally, CareTRAK reports provide critical information for quality and risk managers, answering the question: “of all patients seen yesterday, who is at the highest risk of adverse outcome and/or readmission today?”
“Providers are tired of one dimensional static alerts. They want contextually relevant alerts that reverse when clinically appropriate and accurately reflect the current condition of the patient,” explained Paul Lindeman, MD, veEDIS Clinical Systems Chief Medical Information Officer. “CareTRAK delivers this, driving down risk and at the same time, increasing the quality of care delivered. That, in turn, works to reduce the financial impact of adverse outcomes, readmissions, and potential legal action that can result from a high risk patient being discharged.”
CareTRAK is also available as a component of veEDIS, the best of breed, cloud-based, Emergency Department EMR.
See CareTRAK at HIMSS Annual Conference, April 12 – 16 in Chicago (Booth 4974, South Hall.)
