Micromedex® 360 Care Insights Identifies At-Risk Patients Using Data Profiling and Clinical Surveillance
Ann Arbor, MI and Birmingham, UK – November 6, 2012 — Truven Health Analytics℠, formerly the Healthcare business of Thomson Reuters, today announced the launch of its Micromedex® 360 Care Insights, a data profiling and clinical surveillance dashboard that allows healthcare providers to quickly identify at-risk patients and intervene early to improve clinical outcomes. The new solution was unveiled at the EHI Live 2012 Congress, a two day conference and exhibition for eHealth professionals being held at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, UK.
At a session entitled “Real-time Surveillance and Patient Safety; the Future of Clinical Decision Making,” Jon Challenger, Truven Health Analytics director of EMEA and South Asia, explained how the Micromedex 360 Care Insights dashboard helps clinicians reduce unnecessary costs associated with prolonged treatment and readmissions.
“Healthcare providers are constantly balancing the challenge of improving the quality of clinical outcomes against tighter budgets and shrinking staffs,” said Challenger. “Micromedex 360 Care Insights addresses those challenges by leveraging big data analytics to flag potential warning signs before they become problems.”
Combining the clinical knowledge of Truven Health Analytics with real-time data profiling and clinical surveillance capabilities, Micromedex 360 Care Insights provides clinicians with a consolidated dashboard of patients and proactive alerts of critical new values to help them avoid the risk of infection, adverse drug events, and other potential complications.
Micromedex 360 Care Insights is a system-agnostic solution that aggregates patient data from a hospital’s disparate systems to provide a consolidated dashboard for clinicians. Admissions, lab results, observations, medications, transcribed reports, and other patient-specific information can be seen on one secure dashboard, accessed online or via mobile devices. This real-time solution provides critical back-up during hospital systems downtime.
Though Micromedex 360 Care Insights is new to the UK, many clinicians will be familiar with Micromedex. The Micromedex clinical reference solution is widely relied upon in the UK, and trusted worldwide by 5,500 hospitals in 83 countries. Its comprehensive content is now coupled with the UK’s Electronic Medicines Compendium Summary of Product Characteristics (SPCs). The new content delivers UK-approved information on dose, therapeutic indications, possible side effects and more in the familiar, consistent Micromedex format. Customers can search on commercial or generic drug names to access this information.
