MEDITECH launches Telemetry Appropriateness Toolkit in Expanse
MEDITECH's Telemetry Appropriateness Toolkit supports your organization in the indication-based ordering and timely removal of ECG monitoring.
According to the Society of Hospital Medicine, inappropriate use of telemetric (ECG) monitoring is likely to increase the cost of care and produce false positives, and could result in patient management errors.
MEDITECH’s Telemetry Appropriateness Toolkit helps organizations improve telemetry management through indication-based ordering and timely removal of ECG monitoring. Decreasing inappropriate ordering can reduce utilization costs, increase throughput, and enhance patient satisfaction.
Aligned with industry recommendations, the toolkit is designed using Expanse, our fully interoperable, web-based platform. It includes a bundle of evidence-based tools for the inpatient setting, such as optimal workflows and clinical decision support interventions.
