Predictive analytics: anticipate the future of patient care

Catch patients before they fall through the cracks, help keep them well, and intervene when they’re trending poorly. MEDITECH Surveillance analyzes your data in real time and automatically identifies patients who need attention, whether they qualify for a potential HAC or a clinical quality measure. Our integrated toolset fits smoothly into clinical workflows, helping care teams to prioritize care, take action sooner, and improve outcomes.

Quality and Surveillance works in the background of MEDITECH Expanse, pushing information to you as an early warning system.

"Think of MEDITECH’s Surveillance solution as a combination of the US Air Traffic Control system and the US Geological Survey: it’s that powerful. Surveillance improves communication amongst healthcare teams across all transitions of care. Now, patient safety will take a leap forward with this communication solution."

Stop emerging issues in their tracks.

Your nurses and physicians will know as soon as a patient meets the criteria for sepsis, CAUTI, and other risks.

Evidence-based rules search the clinical and demographic data in MEDITECH’s EHR, 24/7. Patients who meet profile criteria automatically populate tracking boards that indicate if the patient is showing signs of a potential HAC. Clinicians can order, document, or message the care team from these actionable boards, right on the spot.

Our integrated solution broadcasts alerts to status boards and trackers throughout MEDITECH Expanse, reducing communication delays and expediting interventions.

"Being able to have crucial information sent to you versus you looking for it, you’re able to save time and intervene earlier in your patient’s care."

Early awareness means early intervention

Lauren Piech, RN, an informatics nurse at The Valley Hospital (Ridgewood, NJ), describes how this real-time alerting system complements practitioners’ workflow while raising their awareness of HACs and quality metrics.

Hospital-wide problem-solving.

This clinical solution is so versatile, you can use it in any department.

  • Identify at-risk patients earlier
  • Keep healthy patients well
  • Comply with quality measures
  • Prioritize care
  • Manage patient populations

The Valley Hospital created an ED copayment surveillance profile to help track whether registrars requested patients’ copayments. The profile helps staff to be more efficient in their collections and curbs lost revenue.
