LOS ANGELES, Feb. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Stanson Health, a health technology company supporting medical providers in real time at the point of medical decision-making, today announced Hartford HealthCare, an integrated health system in Connecticut, has experienced immediate impact from its clinical decision support (CDS) tools. With the Stanson Health platform, Hartford HealthCare providers have access to validated, evidence-based recommendations that use patient-specific data to help clinicians make better treatment decisions for their patients. In addition to the improved clinical outcomes, Stanson Health's CDS enables significant financial savings to be achieved.
"Because of the potential to reduce risk to our patients, we chose to turn on Stanson Health's blood transfusion intervention," said Hartford HealthCare's Dr. Spencer Erman, Vice President and Chief Medical Informatics Officer. "Our physicians responded really well and in 45 days we prevented over 250 unnecessary transfusions. Early results show our physicians have almost a 50% follow rate and this one intervention is annualizing over $1 million in savings. Also, we were able to use Stanson's analytics to gain additional insight that will guide on our ongoing educational outreach to nurses and providers on the impact of inappropriate use of blood products and telemetry. These early wins are just scratching the surface of what we hope to do with Stanson."
The Stanson Health platform can be rapidly deployed to:
- Reduce alert fatigue and clinician burnout
- Improve quality and patient satisfaction
- Hardwire cost-reducing behaviors
"Stanson successfully integrated their product into our EMR and we did not have to change our clinical process or workflow to accommodate their interventions," said Hartford HealthCare's Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Richard Shirey. "We are encouraged by the early results and are beginning to realize the power of real-time clinical decision support to help care teams make the best treatment choices for our patients."
"Hartford HealthCare is committed to their patients and clearly understands the benefits of reducing unnecessary treatment and its associated costs," said Stanson Health Chief Commercial Operations Officer Ryan Nellis. "We are thrilled to see our Clinical Decision Support solutions support Hartford HealthCare physicians to provide high-value healthcare services."
