Redox Extends Capabilities of Salesforce Health Cloud with Patient Data from Electronic Medical Records

Redox provides a modern API solution for clinical integration with electronic medical record (EMR) systems. The addition of Redox to the Health Cloud product provides streamlined sharing of clinical data and a comprehensive view of patient conditions and clinical events. Health Cloud is generally available for purchase today, giving healthcare providers new ways to make smarter care decisions, engage with patients across their caregiver networks and manage patient data. Redox joins Salesforce as a Health Cloud launch partner at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS16) Conference in Las Vegas.

“We are devoted to accelerating the adoption of great technology in healthcare. We believe Salesforce Health Cloud represents a great step for the industry and look forward to helping the solution positively impact the maximum number of lives,” said Niko Skievaski, Co-founder & President, Redox. “Health Cloud brings together data from many sources and presents a comprehensive view of the patient. Accessing data from the electronic medical record real-time through a modern infrastructure is an integral piece of this puzzle and we are proud to partner with Salesforce to deliver robust EMR integrations.”

“We live in the age of the customer, and patients now expect personalized and engaging experiences with their healthcare providers,” said Joshua Newman, MD, Chief Medical Officer, GM, Salesforce Healthcare and Life Sciences. “Health Cloud is all about building stronger patient relationships, and Redox is a valuable part of our journey towards creating a modern healthcare platform for patients, doctors, and everyone else involved in care.”

Mission Health Selects PeraHealth To Enhance Clinical Surveillance, Patient Safety

Asheville, N.C.-based Mission will integrate PeraHealth’s suite of clinical surveillance solutions into its existing enterprise data warehouse and its Cerner electronic medical record (EMR) system, helping care teams visualize a full picture of patient condition. The software will also be used at the 763-bed Mission Hospital to remotely monitor patients and support bed management across the health system’s five other hospitals located throughout western North Carolina.

“Our partnership with PeraHealth further demonstrates our commitment to providing fully integrated patient care that improves the health of the people and communities we serve,” said Ronald A. Paulus, M.D., president and CEO at Mission, the only health system in the nation named to Truven Health Analytics’ Top 15 Health Systems list four years in a row (2012-2015).

Powered by the Rothman Index, a disease-agnostic measure of patient condition used to predict patient readmission and mortality risk, PeraHealth software pulls data from all major EMR systems. The data is automatically translated into an Index score that’s presented in color-coded graphs computed upon admission and trended across the entire episode of care. The Rothman Index is validated by 18 peer-reviewed publications, including a recent article detailing how its use by a nurse rapid response team was linked to a 30 percent mortality reduction.

“Providing clinicians with innovative, analytics-driven resources to help deliver the right care, in the right place, at the right time is essential in today’s healthcare environment,” said Dr. Chris DeRienzo, Chief Patient Safety Officer at Mission Health. “We believe our partnership with PeraHealth will enhance communication among caregivers, especially during care transitions, and deliver new methods of reducing preventable harm to our patients through machine learning and predictive analytics.”

Patients frequently exhibit subtle warning signs in the hours and days before experiencing life-threatening health problems. Considering the average five-day hospital stay includes at least 24 patient handoffs, these signs can easily be missed during department transfers and shift changes, increasing the potential for unnecessary patient harm and costs.

“Detecting potential patient deterioration is extremely challenging for any care team,” said PeraHealth CEO Stephanie Alexander. “By clearly trending a full picture of patient condition in real-time, PeraHealth solutions alert clinicians earlier to subtle health issues, which can increase the likelihood of successful intervention. We are honored to partner with Mission Health to support their use of innovative analytics to provide high value patient care.”

National Decision Support Company Launches CareSelect

Today, National Decision Support Company (NDSC) announced CareSelect, a new enterprise-wide appropriate use criteria (AUC) and clinical pathway delivery engine integrated with electronic medical records (EMR).

"With over 2 million monthly transactions being generated by more than 100 health systems using our flagship solution ACR Select, we have rapidly become the market's choice to enable the delivery of EMR integrated imaging appropriate use criteria (AUC)," saidMichael Mardini, CEO, NDSC. "Through this experience we have also earned the trust of EMR vendors and guideline publishers alike, and due to the rich interoperability we've achieved with our EMR partners we have expanded into new clinical areas through CareSelect."

CareSelect is designed to house and manage both national and local guidelines and enable healthcare organizations to directly manage the delivery and configuration of EMR advisories using the most up to date clinical knowledge—all within the native EMR user interface.

Guidelines are constantly changing and providers are struggling to manage the delivery of all this new medical knowledge to healthcare providers in a meaningful way. Compliance and quality are critical success factors in a value driven healthcare environment and CareSelect enables the delivery of a wide range of medical knowledge to healthcare providers without the need to reconfigure the EMR each time a guideline changes or needs to be added.
