Microsoft Introduces Patient Safety Screening Tool to Stop Spread of In-Hospital Infections
Date:2/24/2008

>"Even with the years of specialized training physicians receive, it is challenging to see patterns in clinical data amid chaos," said Dr. John Barwise, assistant professor of anesthesiology and neurosurgery, Division of Critical Care, VUMC. "The early detection and treatment of sepsis requires a number of tests, observations and decisions to be made in a limited amount of time. Microsoft's Patient Safety Screening Tool is an essential tool in the fight against sepsis. While the initial focus with PSST is early detection of severe sepsis, the tool is flexible to allow for future modules such as MRSA, pneumonia, urinary tract infections and more."

"The Patient Safety Screening Tool is a suite of Microsoft technologies that enable caregiver collaboration and increase patient safety through early detection of severe sepsis in critical care units," said Randy Fusco, industry technical strategist, Microsoft U.S. Health and Life Sciences Group. "Built on the latest Microsoft platform, PSST can be delivered as a traditional Web- based solution within the hospital or as a software plus services model, providing even more flexibility for provider organizations to deploy solutions focused on patient safety. PSST is a great example of how Microsoft customers can deploy Microsoft Office SharePoint Server to enable automated workflows and ultimately drive improved patient care."

The Patient Safety Screening Tool is part of the Microsoft Connected Health Framework Architecture and Design Blueprint. Launched at last year's Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) show, the blueprint offers a real-world model for healthcare providers seeking to deploy service-oriented architecture solutions to address increasing pressures on an overburdened and fragmented healthcare system. The Connected Health Framework Architecture and Design Blueprint provides a vendor-agnostic approach for addressing integration and solutions within healthcare organizations. I
