MEDai Launches Patient-Specific Early Warning System for Hospitals
Date:4/3/2009

'Pinpoint Review' bedside system ensures patient safety and quality, safeguards hospital reimbursement

ORLANDO, Fla., April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- MEDai, Inc., an Elsevier company and leading provider of advanced solutions for healthcare that utilize award-winning predictive analytics, announced today the launch of its new patient-specific early-warning system for hospitals, Pinpoint Review(TM). Pinpoint Review generates predictions for acute-care patients, focusing on the likelihood of a patient developing a complication, like decubitus ulcers, acquiring a hospital-acquired infection or being readmitted. Such events increase hospital mortality rates, boost healthcare costs, compromise patient care quality and safety, and result in lower government reimbursement to hospitals. In addition to the predictions, Pinpoint Review provides a list of triggers behind each prediction, allowing caregivers to understand the "why" and more effectively generate a plan of action.

Pinpoint Review addresses the increasing pressure on hospitals from entities such as the Agency for Healthcare Quality and Research and the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations to deliver a higher quality of care and fewer medical errors. The solution applies predictive models to patient data while patients are still in the hospital and while there is time to adjust care to avoid a negative outcome. Pinpoint Review alerts care providers to patients at risk for developing several of the conditions that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) no longer reimburse. After analyzing cost and quality data associated with specific CMS "never events" for several hospitals, MEDai determined that the cost avoidance for conditions like readmission and decubitus ulcers can range in the millions per hospital.
