LOS ANGELES, Feb. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Zynx Health™, a market leader in providing evidence- and experience-based clinical decision support since 1996, today announced the launch of Lumynz, a breakthrough surveillance and analytics SaaS platform that measures the utilization of evidence-based interventions and the impact on financial outcomes. Healthcare leaders attending next week's HIMSS19 Global Conference and Exhibition in Orlando will have the opportunity to preview Lumynz and meet with Zynx Health representatives at Booth 1921.
Lumynz provides an interactive, retrospective analysis of provider orders utilization against evidence-based interventions that are proven to enhance outcomes. This analysis highlights how the interventions are being utilized by clinician staff, identifying opportunities to reduce unwarranted care variance. Lumynz enables leaders to engage with clinicians via targeted messages that guide patient care and improve the clinical decision process. Additionally, Lumynz evaluates if the care provided is accurately reflected in the Charge Description Master and on patient claims and identifies charge capture opportunities that have financial impact.
"With Lumynz, hospitals have an interactive solution that helps them realize the full value of standardized clinical actions based on evidence," said Kevin J. Daly, president of Zynx Health. "Over the last decade, organizations have invested millions to implement CPOE solutions that leverage evidence-based protocols, yet few hospitals have reliable solutions to verify clinicians are actually utilizing these interventions. Lumynz provides hospitals a way to measure adherence with evidence-based standards of care, allowing leaders to take appropriate action to ensure the delivery of the right patient care and more accurate charging. Furthermore, Lumynz enables hospital leaders to monitor whether initiatives to improve care are actually impacting clinician behavior."
Dr. Kelly Philiba, the physician informatics specialist at Zynx Health's innovation partner Health Quest, added that "Lumynz enabled us see the complete picture of our evidence-based practices from both clinical and financial perspectives. In March, we implemented a VTE prophylaxis alert but briefly turned it off in May to troubleshoot. Lumynz revealed the initial impact of a 20% increase in compliance with this vital intervention, reflected the oscillation with alert deactivation and reactivation, and provided concrete validation that (at minimum) 92% of heart failure patients are receiving evidence-based care. It was a retrospective enlightenment for us. Lumynz helps us to visualize these processes, and perhaps more importantly, the data gives us a means to delve into 'why' certain interventions are being employed. Lumynz continues to highlight areas of opportunity which empower our drive toward innovation and excellence."
