Alere Analytics Infection Control and Medication Management Solution
Alere Analytics has launched its Clinical Surveillance product for hospitals, which is an automated technology solution designed to manage antimicrobial stewardship, infection control and medication management.
Alere demonstrated this new solution at the 40 th Annual Conference of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC), as well as showcasing its antimicrobial stewardship initiative Test Target Treat™. Test Target Treat™ demonstrates the importance of using rapid diagnostics to make more targeted treatment decisions and reduce the inappropriate use of antibiotics. Alere's new Clinical Surveillance Solution is currently being deployed at a large (over 500 bed) hospital in the greater New York area, which further strengthens Alere's rapid diagnostics and real-time decision support footprint in over 2,000 hospitals.
The Clinical Surveillance Solution provides a dashboard view of all patients currently being treated in order to provide clinicians with real-time information that can reduce the risk of hospital acquired infections. The platform's single sign -on provides access and input data without requiring providers to sign on to another system, and can be easily integrated into existing hospital systems with no disruption to workflow. In addition, our flexible and evidence-driven rules editor help infection control personnel to prevent Healthcare- associated Infections (HAI), identify those at risk of new infections, take appropriate action in real-time, and prevent adverse events and readmissions.
It is designed to provide hospitals of any bed size with the ability to seamlessly capture an report on quality, performance and accountability measures from electronic health records (EHRs). The Clinical Surveillance Solution also provides electronic reporting capabilities to public health agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control.
By automating these measures, hospitals will be able to save countless hours and resources, while providing the highest quality of care to their patients.
The Alere Analytics Clinical Surveillance Solution provides hospitals with real-time capabilities that support the following initiatives:
- Antimicrobial Stewardship
- Medication Monitoring
- Anti-Coagulation Management
- Disease and Patient Monitoring
- Isolation Support
Alere Analytics' platform is built on industry standards to provide both functional interoperability through HL7 v3, as well as semantic interoperability across medical terminologies.
The parameters of the system are defined by the hospital user and include a coordinated effort with infection control practitioners, pharmacists and laboratory personnel.The dashboard's single view allows actionable information to be delivered in real-time and at the point of care, in order to directly and immediately impact and improve the quality of care for both the individual patient and entire populations. Most importantly, the evidence based content is developed by Alere Analytics' team of clinicians and sourced from today's current healthcare guidelines.
