Hiteks Supports Local NYC Artists to Strengthen Pediatrics Focus
Hiteks is proud to support the directors of a NYC-produced documentary film called The Candidates, which was shown in November at the DOCNYC film festival and at last week’s Big Sky Film Festival in Montana:
This high school in Queens serves as an example of how youth activities, including political ones, can be presented in an educational way and create engagement and knowledge generation amongst students. The film has already received distinction by entertaining offers from studios that will soon make the film available to audiences via streaming. If you are interested in screening this film at a local high school please let us know so that we can connect you with the directors.
The need for pediatrics-based education and focus is also paramount to health care, where knowledge can be shared of how to properly identify and manage children’s illnesses such as cancer, lung disease, infections, and many others. For instance, when these illnesses worsen they become the primary drivers of patients suffering from Sepsis and Status Asthmaticus and deterioration of outcomes seen when patients enter the hospital.
By sponsoring the directors of The Candidates, Hiteks is both fostering community awareness of political issues, as well as the co-morbid conditions which need to be captured for CDI (Clinical Documentation Improvement) and CDS (Clinical Decision Support) to improve care. Hiteks’ approach of optimizing the EHR for clinical decision-making can be best seen through our Pediatrics CDI, VigilantQA Sepsis Surveillance and CarePaths For Heart Failure programs. We are able to reduce false positive Epic BPA alerts for Sepsis and optimize advice for CDI from evidence-based guidelines through our engineering which accommodates patient age and demographics, along with client-specific logic.
We will be using the funds from our investment in this film for the continued research and development of pediatrics programs in CDI and CDS for sepsis surveillance programs. If you are interested in how your local hospital or health system can better monitor for these conditions to improve CDI, patient safety and outcomes, please contact us.
