Alan Manning has an intimate view of what it takes to provide an outstanding patient experience, not only because he has been COO of Derby, Connecticut–based Planetree for four years, but also because he spent several months in the hospital with his critically ill daughter. That pivotal experience, while traumatic, solidified friendships with his daughter’s nurses and brought him several years later to Planetree, a nonprofit organization started in 1978 by a patient who wanted to help hospitals deliver stronger patient-centered care practices. Planetree works with 700 organizations in more than 17 countries.

Sebasticook Valley Health’s Emergency Department found that when it came to obtaining medication history, DrFirst’s MedHx(SM) solution provided vast improvements over the built-in feed from their integrated electronic medical records system. The hospital did a side by side comparison of MedHx(SM) and their existing feed, and determined that MedHx(SM) provided superior results, which reduced staff time spent on medication reconciliation, improved patient safety and enabled the hospital pharmacy, as well as doctors and nurses, to be more proactive in pulling medication history upon patient admission.

When it came time for Southwest Vermont Medical Center (SVMC) to deploy a new barcode medication administration (BCMA) system, SVMC chose a Zebra positive patient ID system consisting of barcode printers, scanners, software tools, media and labels. Since that time, over two million medication doses have been administered. Nurses have been able to achieve an average medication scan rate of over 95% and a patient identification scan rate in excess of 99% for inpatient units. Even more impressive, these results have been sustained over a five-year period.

Dallas-based Parkland Health & Hospital implemented a Zebra technology solution to create a mobile-enabled workforce at its new state-of-the-art hospital campus. That mobile solution enabled the nursing staff to focus on what’s most important — patient care. The solution gave nurses the ability to communicate in real time, access right-now information and take the right action with that information. Parkland’s leadership was able to track all patient activities from positive patient identification and specimen collection to laboratory specimen tracking and pharmacy medication administration. Additionally, hospital staff communication with voice and secure texting, along with patient alerts and alarms—all help increase patient safety, care and satisfaction.

There are several reasons for this, including the inability of healthcare institutions to constantly monitor post-operative deterioration as well as patient's inability to visit the healthcare center for post-operation followups. Most of the patient data is recorded manually. This data is often weaned from displays of multiple monitoring devices like vitals monitor, infusion pumps, and ventilators. More often than not, these devices do not talk to each other or to a central system. Doctors, nurses, or other care-givers manually note down patient statistics in their files and notepads. Even though the healthcare industry is in the throes of digitization, there's still a lot of paper doing the rounds. eventually, the data from these physical sheets might be fed into an electronic system, but there is a high chance of error in that process.

There is a lot of discussion in the press about Big Data. Big Data is traditionally defined in terms of the three V’s of Volume, Velocity, and Variety. In other words, Big Data is often characterized as high-volume, streaming, and including semi-structured and unstructured formats. Healthcare organizations have produced enormous volumes of unstructured data, such as the notes by physicians and nurses in electronic medical records (EMRs). In addition, healthcare organizations produce streaming data, such as from patient monitoring devices. Now, thanks to emerging technologies such as Hadoop and streams, healthcare organizations are in a position to harness this Big Data to reduce costs and improve patient outcomes. However, this Big Data has profound implications from an Information Governance perspective. In this white paper, we discuss Big Data Governance from the standpoint of three case studies.
