Client Story

Commitment to patient safety earns top recognition for Methodist Hospital

Challenge

Methodist Hospital required an electronic health record (EHR) that can help put the hospital’s steadfast focus on safety into practice. The technology needed to offer clinical decision support, and tools that enable clinicians to follow evidence-based guidelines. With the exponential growth rate of medical knowledge, it is impossible for clinicians to know everything they may need. Methodist Hospital was looking for a better way to support their staff and enable better care.

  • Develop an antimicrobial stewardship that reduced unnecessary usage, and saved money
  • Leverage alerts to help clinicians quickly address sepsis, keeping mortality rates at almost half the national average
