The software allows continuous monitoring and evaluation of clinical information and executes quality indicators of the treatment. It uses complex clinical algorithms to find correlations in clinical data that indicate the presence of high-risk conditions and responds by early identification and intervention of any threat. The system has the feature to alert clinicians in real time so that patients can be assessed and best practice interventions can be delivered.
What are the areas in healthcare where this application can be implemented?
Corticon BRMS enables core measure reporting that enables automatic extraction of data across a set population. For instance, Romanian Ministry of Health has installed universal healthcare system for all citizens, including prescription drug coverage. There is considered to be wide mismatch of data available on the population leading to fraudulent activities. For instance, doctor claims for 27 million patients whereas only 19 million exist. Such analysis of the population can be easily detected through this application.
What is the usage of this application in real time drug monitoring in patients? How can this be useful in hospitals?
There is a wide real-time drug interaction monitoring feature of this application. For instance, when a new medication is administered followed by a rise in the heart rate by, say 10 percent, and blood pressure falls by say 20 percent, of minimum allowable for this patient within five minutes, real time window then reviews drug interaction model and if needed withdraws new medication and alerts clinician.
Other functions are, when an at-risk patient is detected outside an authorized area then it alerts the nearest appropriate nurse or when mobile medical device is detected outside an authorized area and not co-located with an authorized user then it alert the nearest appropriate security person. When care giver enters a room then customize in-room display with relevant information or when a nurse leaves a patient room followed by the same nurse entering another patient room and if any of the basic activities are not followed such as the latex glove dispenser not utilized or the hand sanitizer dispenser not utilized within 15 seconds, then it raise audio-visual disease control alarm.
What difference the new application can bring in the way healthcare is delivered?
Progress Corticon Business Rules Management is designed to drive smarter for faster business automation at health and human services agencies. It helps organizations across the spectrum of healthcare to automate operational decisions and intelligent citizen interactions by accelerating and streamlining the implementation and maintenance of regulations, rules and policies. It aims to improve accuracy and speed of benefits eligibility and delivery and consolidates redundant tasks and sharing information across programs. Besides, it also prevents fraud with automated audit and fraud investigation processes.
And how can it be deployed in hospitals?
Corticon BRMS can be deployed on a standalone desktop environment for business rules modelling with Corticon Studio or in a scalable enterprise-ready business Corticon Server.
