Delivering solutions

Less Effort, Less Burden, More Impact

Dara Bartels, CEO at Mile Bluff Medical Center, gives an example of how Expanse Search and Summarization powered by Google Health uses AI to comb through old records and discover a medication that worked well for a patient years before.

    “I used to spend about 15 minutes per patient cleaning up problem lists, especially for new patients or patients transferred to me from other providers. The search and summarization functionality will help me cut this time down significantly.”

    Angela Gatzke-Plamann, MD

    “This search and summarization tool is powerful. Instead of spending hours or days requesting and sifting through several hundred pages of a patient’s record, this can be done in minutes. It distills the information into something usable at the moment that makes an immediate difference in what I do for this patient.”

    “I searched for a DNR, and it pulled up the scanned document, and I found it right away. It saved us that day in the ER.”

    “I am tasked with reviewing hundreds of pages of discharge summaries and scanned documents from other sites each day. This functionality is going to transform my entire workflow.”

    “Instead of having to take the time to conduct lengthy chart reviews, the solution gives us the capability to confirm patient conditions like sepsis, surgical site infection, or hospital-acquired infection within minutes. This allows us to more smoothly ensure we provide the best care to our patients while giving us the accurate data we need to submit to national organizations like CMS.”

    Brenda Totzke

    Director of Infection Control

    “There’s been a lot of hype about AI in the industry, but it's not until you put that functionality into action that you see the immense impact this technology can have on the staff. When you can make your staff's lives easier by more efficiently surfacing the right data at the right point in the workflow to provide more precise patient care, it's a win for everyone.”
