Problem Statement

The client implemented a Perioperative Information Management System (PIMS) with goals to improve ease and accuracy of documentation, improve compliance and quality of care. Though the PIMS improved ease and clarity of documentation, many of the desired clinical and operational goals were unrealized. PIMS could not assist providers in delivering the highest  quality care and only offered limited and retrospective data analytics capabilities leading to poor visibility of care and operations.

SAM & PeriOp Insights

Perimatics implemented a closed-loop learning system utilizing SAM (a real-time point of care decision support engine) and PeriOpInsights (drill-down analytics) built on top of the Perimatics Perioperative Data Platform (PDP) to measure adherence to clinical protocols and track compliance. The system allows continuous learning of care delivery while providing guidance to improve quality. Through a closed-loop cycle of learning and intervention digital quality improvement was effectively achieved and is continuously refined.
