DENVER, Feb. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent study published in the Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology Journal analyzed several quality measures of data captured during the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic comparing Axion Health's ReadySet EHR to traditional paper processes.
8,411 employees from a California-based healthcare network participated in the study. Data collection occurred during the second peak of the pandemic H1N1 influenza season from November-December 2011. Read the complete article.
In this study, the authors stated "healthcare workers provided more complete information…when they used a self-administered, Web-based EHR..." "EHRs significantly reduced the frequency of vaccine-related medical discrepancies…" And, "despite initial concerns that the convenience of an EHR would lead to a high rate of declinations," it was observed that voluntary vaccination rates exceeded national and state averages.
The researchers also noted that, "if a medical contraindication was indicated on the electronic survey, the EHR flagged that answer and provided clinical decision support to the provider;" providing a function not possible using paper forms.
Axion Health's medical content team continuously integrates new and revised medical information into its clinical decision support tools. It's the only company in the field of workforce health management software that maintains a medical advisory board of nationally recognized knowledge leaders.
Additionally, Axion Health's unique core intelligence called MD IQ™ integrates the industry's only workflow algorithms that analyze employee medical and exposure histories to provide clinical snapshots.
The study concluded Web-based EHR solutions can "improve the quality, accuracy, and tracking of vaccination data and can bridge the gap between public health recommendations and tangible improvements in health outcomes."
Axion Health's ReadySet is a Web-based solution that completely manages vaccination programs, resulting in increased voluntary compliance (often at 90+%), accurate real-time reporting, minimized duplicate clinical tests, and reduced data entry time.
