Introducing a robust methodology to create point of care decision support
CarePaths – A Decision Support, Surveillance and Management Tool integrated with EHR workflow.
Solution: CarePaths – Heart Failure
CarePaths – Heart Failure is a comprehensive management tool for inpatient, ambulatory and ED workflows related to patients who have Heart Failure with Reduced Ejection Fraction (Systolic Heart Failure). The tool identifies clinical practice and knowledge gaps, provides treatment advice, and educates clinicians to properly manage cardiovascular patients per peer-reviewed guidelines, as, for example, AHA/ACC/HFSA guidelines related to the management of heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) patients and AHA/ACC/HFSA and Heart Rhythm Society guidelines related to the reduction of sudden cardiac death and all-cause mortality in HFrEF patients.
Hiteks supports configuration of the algorithms included so that they are client-specific, although the solution comes with a preset library of guidelines including those for Prevention & Screening, Monitoring, Evaluation, Treatment and Dose Titration. Outcomes are measured so that the system can identify improvement and reduction of variation of care to improve the clinical and financial Key Performance Indicators.
Pharmacy optimization and clinical management can be achieved through a single, EHR-integrated application that provides timely and patient-specific advice, as shown in these 2 videos:
