JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Clearsense, the developer of an advanced healthcare data ecosystem and data applications focused on improving outcomes, today announced a partnership with CHI Franciscan Health (CHI Franciscan) to help the organization fulfill its mission of creating healthier communities. CHI Franciscan's clinicians and practitioners will be leveraging the Clearsense Data Ecosystem, Clinical and Operational Surveillance solutions and 360 Degree Patient Insights to provide better patient care.
In healthcare today, massive amounts of data are generated every day and then stored in disparate places—and it is both costly and complex to make meaning of this abundance of data. Clearsense aggregates and organizes this data for clinicians, empowering them to identify and gather the most relevant data for patients and make more informed decisions about their care.
CHI Franciscan, which has been ranked among the Top 100 Integrated Health Networks in the nation since 2004, will activate the easy-to-use analytics platform at its eight acute care hospitals. The Clearsense analytics applications, offered as a subscription-based suite, will enable clinical, operational, and financial decision-makers at the Tacoma-based health system to tap into powerful, real-time streaming analytics without requiring upfront hardware investments or maintenance costs.
Clearsense applications remove the barriers created by data silos and closed platforms, allowing health systems to harness the power of big data, which can be incredibly difficult to realize without the support of the right technology. The cloud-based platform easily aggregates structured and unstructured data from all sources, maintaining the highest level of data integrity. The Clearsense applications will serve as a core component of CHI Franciscan's comprehensive data and analytics strategy, providing the intelligence to treat—and often foresee—health issues facing members of the community while controlling cost and risk.
The Clearsense analytics suite offers CHI Franciscan the following benefits:
- Real time situational awareness of key clinical and market strategy indicators, assisting clinicians in the early detection, recognition and treatment for conditions like sepsis, Rapid Response Activation and Code Blue
- Deep insights into the social determinates of health to better understand patients as individuals – their attitudes, behaviors, as well as other healthcare influencing information assists in organizational strategic business and operations decisions
- The ability to create a 360 degree view of patients and populations and faster paths to insights through the data ecosystem's ability to aggregate and analyze complex, high-volume data transactions
- Streaming analytics in real time to drive powerful healthcare insights while eliminating latency issues
"We believe that providers must be proactive in their response to the changing healthcare landscape. Taking that much-needed action requires data and analytics to drive more informed decision making. We're very pleased to partner with Clearsense, who offers the most advanced solution on the market today, to access real-time insights that will help us to achieve better clinical, operational, and financial outcomes—and most importantly, improve the health of the patients we serve," said Ketul J. Patel, Chief Executive Officer of CHI Franciscan.
"At Clearsense, we pride ourselves on bringing fresh and innovative solutions to the data-related challenges facing healthcare providers. CHI Franciscan's forward-thinking leaders understand our vision and share our passion, making them an ideal partner for our company. We welcome them to the Clearsense family and look forward to collaborating to drive sustained outcomes improvement," said Christopher Rogowski, President of Clearsense. "Our team is also thrilled about the progress we continue to make in increasing our footprint to provide high-impact and affordable data driven solutions to more health care organizations across the country."
Based in Jacksonville Beach, Florida, Clearsense is inventing a new model of healthcare analytics, one that is truly accessible to even non-data scientists, for meeting and exceeding quality measures and patient wellbeing. No longer will data silos and closed platforms impede progress. No longer will cost and complexity pervade the analytics industry.
