MILFORD, Conn., March 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Bernoulli, the leader in real-time solutions for patient safety, announced that two prominent physicians will join the company as consultants to explore issues related to real-time healthcare delivery and increased patient safety.
Neil A. Halpern, MD, MCCM, FCCP, FACP, is Director of the Critical Care Center, Chief of the Critical Care Medicine Service and Medical Director of Respiratory Therapy at Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) Cancer Center in New York. Dr. Halpern oversees a team of highly experienced doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, respiratory therapists, research and bedside nurses, and critical care programmers who help provide care for patients in MSK's adult medical-surgical intensive care unit (ICU).
Since 2000, he has co-chaired the hospital's Clinical Device and Product Evaluation Committee, and since 2014, the Alarm Committee at MSK. Between 2005 and 2007, he chaired the multidisciplinary ICU Design Committee that developed the plan and monitored the construction of MSK's 20-bed medical-surgical adult ICU, which opened in April 2007.
"There is a clear need in healthcare for greater connectivity, interoperability and comprehensive real-time data to support improved patient safety, enhanced care team collaboration and proactive clinical intervention," said Dr. Halpern. "I look forward to advising Bernoulli on the applications and services that will have the greatest impact."
Amar Setty, MD, is the CEO of AnesthesiaStat, a Baltimore-based anesthesia consulting and management company operated by practicing, Board Certified anesthesiologists. In addition to an active private practice, Dr. Setty serves as the immediate-Past President of the Maryland Society of Anesthesiologists, where he continues to be an advocate.
He is working to develop data-centric applications for patient-advocated, value-based care, ultrasound/video-based artificial intelligence for medical procedures, as well as an app for patient empowerment in chronic pain. He has a unique interest in the use of technology to improve the perioperative experience and is working to build a new system of surgical risk prediction and management. He hopes to improve the quality and care of patients before and after discharge.
"The complexity and exponential growth of patient-generated data in modern care settings can be overwhelming, and even act as a barrier to real-time patient care and interventions if not properly managed," said Dr. Setty. "I am excited to share my perspectives and experiences as a physician with Bernoulli to better facilitate the use of comprehensive real-time patient data to improve patient safety, quality and cost of care."
"Many of the challenges facing healthcare providers – including mitigating patient safety threats, embarking on value-based care initiatives, and streamlining clinical workflows – require comprehensive real-time data, surveillance and analytics," said Janet Dillione, CEO of Bernoulli. "Dr. Setty and Dr. Halpern's clinical expertise will help uncover valuable insights, enabling us to better align our solutions with the needs of hospitals and health systems."
