Patient Safety Monitor Suite
The Patient Safety Monitor Suite alerts a health provider’s patient safety organization (PSO) of potential harm, based on pre-defined or client defined clinical trigger events and rules. It also provides drill down analysis of the root cause and documentation of the analysis and root cause. Unlike a patient record system or EMR, this documentation is stored in a protected area governed by the clients’ PSO, to be used for process and quality improvement purposes only.

Problem (i.e. barrier, issue, complication, etc.) being solved for the end user
Safety events represent waste –financially and through avoidable deaths. A mass of challenges prevents most systems from achieving zero harm, including complexity, insufficient data, and burnout. The Patient Safety Monitor Suite enables healthcare organizations to focus relentlessly to identity, understand, and prevent all-cause harm so you can consistently provide safe, high-quality care.
Idea/solution to the problem, if applicable
The Patient Safety Monitor Suite is a collection of automated patient safety tools that improves patient outcomes and lowers cost. The suite flows from surveillance of events to documentation of pressure injury assessment findings and finally to the aggregation of patient safety findings.

Impact (i.e. measurable outcomes), if applicable
Thibodaux Regional Health System sought to transform its blood transfusion practices. Aware that blood transfusions were often over-used, Thibodaux Regional’s leadership prioritized engaging providers to decrease unnecessary transfusions, reduce potential risks to patients, and improve costs of care. The organization leveraged data and analytics to better understand opportunities for improvement.
• $104K reduction in costs, the result of a 28.6 percent relative reduction in red blood cell transfusion.

UnityPoint Health created a task force to develop and implement a plan for maximizing blood management. The task force incorporated decision support to improve transfusion ordering in alignment with the transfusion standards. An analytics platform has also been leveraged, which monitors the utilization of blood products, including predictive modeling to risk-adjust blood utilization specific to patient case-mix, and data down to the ordering provider level.
• $17.4M reduction in direct costs over six years, the result of decreasing unnecessary RBC transfusion.

Community Health Network (CHNw) was keenly aware of the impact that opioid prescribing patterns have on potential opioid misuse and set a focus on decreasing opioid prescriptions; however, it lacked access to meaningful data that could be used to understand the volume of opioids that were prescribed postoperatively. CHNw created an orthopedics guidance team and leveraged data within its analytics platform to gain insight into prescribing habits over time.
• 35 percent relative reduction in the total number of opioid pills prescribed.
• 20.4 percent relative reduction in the average number of opioid pills per prescription.
• 239,230 fewer opioid pills available in the community.
