Prevent sepsis and other hospital-acquired conditions
Surveillance works in the background of your EHR, 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."
Physician Informaticist, MEDITECH
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 your 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 your MEDITECH EHR, 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."
Associate Vice President, MEDITECH
