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

JDCH has used the TheraDoc decision support technology since 2007 for infection prevention, medication safety and other applications. The system automates the collection and analysis of clinical data from a range of sources within the hospital and alerts caregivers to clinically significant information so that appropriate interventions can be made. The software also helps coordinate communication among patient care teams and hospital executives, and facilitates reporting to public health officials and quality organizations.  

"We adopted the pediatric asthma initiatives based on our desire to be at the forefront of quality patient care," said Alice Chan, R.Ph., IT clinical applications manager at MHS. "We were committed to decreasing the need for readmission and achieving a high compliance rate with the quality measures, and TheraDoc helped us streamline the process. We are pleased that we can share our experience and success of using information technology to help improve the quality of patient care."

According to Stanley Pestotnik, M.S., R.Ph., general manager, TheraDoc, Hospira, JDCH's success with these quality initiatives illustrates the versatility of the TheraDoc clinical surveillance platform, which provides tools to quickly address a range of quality and patient safety challenges that arise in healthcare every day.
