NEW YORK, May 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Children's Minnesota, one of the largest pediatric health systems in the US, is collaborating with avoMD, a next-gen clinical decision support platform, to enhance its evidence-based clinical guideline offering. Clinical guidelines are recommendations based on the latest science that are used by providers to help treat common conditions to achieve optimal patient outcomes.
"By integrating avoMD with Children's Minnesota's evidence-based approach and expertise, our clinicians will be better equipped to deliver standardized, quality care with greater efficiency."

The two parties will be digitizing Children's Minnesota's guidelines into digital, interactive formats which will be made available on clinicians' phones via the avoMD mobile app. The collaboration will focus on specific guidelines, including venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis, febrile infant, multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C), diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), and skin and soft tissue infections (SSTI), across the ambulatory, emergency, and inpatient care settings. Additionally, avoMD will leverage its analytics capabilities to offer Children's Minnesota valuable clinical and quality insights.
"Children's Minnesota is committed to improving children's health by providing the highest-quality care, and adopting avoMD only underscores that commitment," said Dr. Gabrielle Hester, medical director of quality improvement at Children's Minnesota. "By integrating avoMD with our evidence-based approach and expertise, our clinicians will be better equipped to deliver standardized, quality care with greater efficiency."
