Expanding beyond radiology to feature new cardiology analytics to enhance workflow
Philips’ Data Management and Interoperability Solutions also features the company’s newest enhancements in Enterprise Performance Analytics – Performance Bridge – expanding operational insights and deep analytics beyond radiology to the cardiology department to enhance efficiencies and help improve effectiveness at the point of care. Philips Enterprise Performance Analytics – Performance Bridge – gives healthcare professionals access to near real-time data on departmental performance through an easy-to-use interactive dashboard. Its operational insights have driven performance improvements in multiple health systems including Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute, where 100% of staff surveyed stated the Performance Bridge Patient Flow applications saves time in their workday and improves teamwork and communication . Additionally, Kootenai Health in Idaho has leveraged the near real-time insights of Performance Bridge to improve their Cath Lab operations. Within 3 years, they have documented an increase in radial access rates associated with fewer complications, including major bleeding and mortality, from 9% to 42%, while improving patient comfort and shortening recovery times .
With these newest enhancements, cardiology departments now have access to critical metrics to support operational performance monitoring in an invasive procedural setting such as the interventional suite, providing data on procedure volumes, room utilization, procedure duration and lab turnaround time.
Cardiology departments can also access key metrics designed to support operational performance monitoring in a non-invasive procedural setting such as cardiac imaging suites, most notably echocardiography, with access to data on procedure volumes, modality/machine utilization, study type counts and report turnaround time. This newest release further demonstrates Philips’ commitment to bring together the right combination of services and tools to measure and monitor key areas of improvement to help drive continuous improvement in radiology and cardiology departments to optimize operations, enhance workflow efficiencies and improve patient outcomes.
