What does “evidence-based, context-based mean”?
Stanson CDS rules present a message to the ordering physician. That message displays on the order entry screen, is based on the specific patient’s records, and cites an appropriate authority.
Transition to risk-based payment requires a greater focus on reducing costs
As the healthcare landscape evolves, organizations must find ways to reduce costs, without sacrificing quality of care, to remain competitive.
Unnecessary or inappropriate care accounts for a significant amount of overall healthcare spending. More than 80% of overall healthcare costs are directly linked to decisions made by physicians.
The decision to place an order for medical services initiates most of the cost in healthcare and often has the most impact on quality of care. Stanson offers providers Clinical Decision Support (CDS), integrated with natural workflow, at the time the physician places an order. Stanson keeps the “Five “Rights” of clinical decision support at the forefront of the physician workflow: the right information, to the right person, in the right intervention format, through the right channel, at the right time.
Stanson helps organizations prepare for global or shared risk by targeting the significant opportunity to reduce costs by providing physicians with Clinical Decision Support aimed at reducing or eliminating unnecessary care.
Effective clinical decision support requires engagement at the point of care
Studies show that physicians are enthusiastic about reducing unnecessary care and overwhelmingly endorse the use of clinical guidelines. Delivering the right decision support at the right time at the point of care is the key to reducing costs. Integrating decision support seamlessly and automatically integrated into the provider workflow is 112 times more likely to have an impact.
Unlike other forms of CDS, alerts are patient specific and easy to access
Not all forms of CDS are equally effective; e.g., only real-time alerts embedded into the workflow are both precise and available at all times, resulting in much higher clinical adoption.
Evidence-based, physician-designed logic drives Stanson alerts, ensuring that an alert will only fire when the patient meets a specific profile and offers only recommendations relevant to the physician’s decision. Physicians don’t need to alter workflow to access pertinent recommendations because the system ensures the alert will fire when appropriate.
Stanson uses an extensive clinical review process to create Stanson alerts, and vets all content extensively in a large, academic community hospital through a standardized process of implementation, testing, optimization, and redeployment. Stanson monitors, evaluates, and improves the logic and structure of each intervention based on daily use by practicing physicians.
The Stanson Clinical Decision Support System is the engine that’s changing the way providers deliver healthcare in the United States.
