Stanson Health today announced an expanded partnership with Altamonte Springs, Florida-based Adventist Health System (AHS), one of the largest health systems in the U.S., with 46 hospital campuses across nine states, to enable its clinical decision support (CDS) solutions within the electronic health record (EHR). AHS will implement Stanson’s tools across its system, enabling providers to access highly validated, evidence-based recommendations and CDS analytics.
“Stanson’s technology solutions are already live in some of our largest inpatient and ambulatory care settings and we’re now expanding their usage across our entire system,” said Adventist Health System Chief Medical Information Officer Qammer Bokhari, MD. “Medical knowledge and technological capabilities are compounding at a rapid rate. Stanson is on the forefront pairing Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence capabilities with evidence-based guidelines. This will help provide additional support to our care teams by bringing meaningful, real-time clinical decision support to help provide the best care possible.”
The suite of Stanson Health tools that will be deployed across several more areas of inpatient and ambulatory EHRs includes:
Stanson’s Core Content library of proven, well-curated clinical interventions: Choosing Wisely, high-cost medications, laboratory tests, MA Star, etc.
Stanson’s PAMA-compliant mechanism for imaging decision support, which does not require indication entry or re-entry of data from the EHR
Stanson’s Iris Analytics, which enables rich CDS insights of Stanson and homegrown content, provides peer-comparison, order set analysis and outlier feedback as well as national de-identified benchmarking
“Our providers have responded really well to Stanson’s clinical decision support because it uses patient-specific clinical data from the chart to make recommendations,” said Adventist Health System Chief Medical Information Officer for Ambulatory Solutions Shelly Nash, MD. “It presents to them in their workflow as a helpful, actionable ‘nudge’ and we’ve seen great follow-rates and adherence to these important guidelines. Stanson’s analytics show the individualized clinician response, and leadership has been able to use the data to inform their feedback, which further drives adherence to these health system measures.”
Creating CDS with industry-leading follow-rates requires a sophisticated development process that involves intensive testing. The clinical development team at Stanson Health rigorously tests its clinical interventions prior to customer release and after. Once the interventions meet certain standards, Stanson’s platform is able to provide actionable guidance to help clinicians meet the needs of patients. Stanson’s analytics application picks up the clinician response and provides insights to the right individuals.
“Adventist Health System is a leader and an innovator in delivering high-quality and high-value care for its patients. They have been important partners to Stanson and we look forward to expanding our relationship with the organization,” said Stanson Health Chairman of the Board Scott Weingarten.
