Intervene faster with Surveillance, our predictive analytics solution

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.

How does MEDITECH help identify high-risk patients?

Hear from Chief Quality and Compliance Officer Cathy Pimple, MS, APRN, as she explains how Newman Regional Health (Newman, KS) is reducing all-cause readmissions.

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.
