MDmetrix Announces OR Advisor Software Suite Enabling Improved Patient Care and Financial PerformanceSEATTLE, WA, 10 December 2018
MDmetrix, a healthcare data analytics company, today announced OR Advisor, a software suite that enables clinicians and medical leaders to access, analyze, and improve clinical and workflow outcomes across surgery-related specialties. OR Advisor provides visibility into outcomes throughout the operating room environment, with modules including Periop Manager, Anesthesia, Orthopedics, ENT, Urology, and others.
OR Advisor is used by frontline clinicians and medical leadership to improve patient care and lower costs. With OR Advisor, a frontline clinician can analyze and monitor his performance of a procedure, or quickly assess whether introduction of a new protocol has successfully reduced patient pain scores. An operating room manager can use OR Advisor to assess scheduling capacity. A department chief can use real-world evidence to determine best practices for her physicians, and a chief medical officer can visualize performance variability between system facilities.
First launched at Seattle Children’s Hospital in 2016, MDmetrix’s analytics, visualization, and AI tools are now being used to drive improvements across the hospital and its ambulatory surgery center. Clinicians using MDmetrix’s OR Advisor in these settings have improved care for thousands of surgery patients, while also identifying very substantial cost-saving opportunities that allow Seattle Children’s to invest in advancing its critical mission. Over the past year, MDmetrix has become Seattle Children’s first spin-out company.
“Historically, providers have had limited ability to use clinical data to drive improvement in clinical practice, because it has been too difficult for clinicians to access and analyze outcomes data,” said Mark Del Beccaro, MD, chief medical officer and senior vice president for Seattle Children’s. “Now, with MDmetrix, clinical staff with no specialized IT training can quickly and easily visualize outcomes data with a simple interface. Critical clinical questions such as ‘Does intervention A or intervention B work better for patient population X?’ can now be answered in minutes with MDmetrix.”
“With MDmetrix's new OR Advisor, healthcare leaders are driving a culture of quality and innovation while leveraging their investments in electronic medical records,” said Warren Ratliff, chief executive officer of MDmetrix. “By empowering clinicians and enabling a new approach to clinical operations, MDmetrix’s customers are achieving dramatic improvements in care and surfacing millions of dollars in cost and revenue opportunities.”
