HIMSS Honors Memorial Healthcare System for Using TheraDoc(TM) Decision Support Technology to Achieve 97 Percent Compliance With Pediatric Asthma Quality Measures
Date:3/1/2010

Introduced in October 2009 by HIMSS and the American Society for Quality (ASQ), the Stories of Success! program called for case studies showcasing real-world examples of leveraging health information technology to improve patient safety, quality, effectiveness and efficiency. Memorial Healthcare System was honored by a peer-review body of experts from HIMSS, the Joint Commission, the National Committee for Quality Assurance and the ASQ.

The recognized case study highlighted how MHS' Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital (JDCH) met the children's asthma care core measures by using a team approach and tools from the TheraDoc computerized safety surveillance and decision support system. Healthcare providers at JDCH found that it was difficult to track all pediatric asthma patients to ensure compliance with the measures. In some cases, patient length of stay was only one to two days, further complicating efforts to comply with the core measures. The team utilized TheraDoc computer-generated alerts to identify pediatric asthma patients based on prescription medication and admissions data as a first step in implementing a core measure for providing pediatric asthma home management care plans to patients and caregivers -- resulting in a 97 percent compliance rate with the asthma core measures.
