Real-time Health Data Analytics Invigorates Cardiology Care
Mountain View, CA – March 30, 2016 – The UW Medicine Regional Heart Center has implemented a new approach for continuous quality improvement in the cardiac catheterization laboratory using Foundations™ from Health Level. Critical information that traditionally is difficult to obtain and use, is now available instantly, enabling leadership, doctors and staff to make timely evidence-based decisions.
UW Medicine Regional Heart Center is among the best cardiology care centers in the world, with ground breaking procedures and treatments. The vast amount of data was being unused, due to lack of interfacing and analytical capability. Recognizing the challenge, UW Medicine leadership took a self-service approach to empower the department staff and management.
By interfacing data that is already being created in the course of patient-care to Foundations Cardiology, physicians, staff and leadership were able to immediately gain insight into their business and clinical performance. Immediate and actionable personalized performance metrics are available to the entire heart center team. Powerful clinical surveillance tools that saves time and improves patient outcomes are available to the clinical leadership.
“Across the industry, lack of actionable data and visibility is impacting patient care and business performance. It is rewarding to see how UW Medicine has taken Foundations Cardiology and use it every day to run their business of patient care.” said Parag Paranjpe, Founder and CEO of HealthLevel, “We are fortunate they have selected Foundations™ and partnering with HealthLevel to improve patient care.”
