Infection Control - Patient Flow Manager


Published on

IC-PFM is an Infection Control - Patient Flow Manager Software to address two of the most urgent problems facing hospitals today:
1) Unnecessary length of stay delays, and
2) The rising workload of infection control surveillance.

Key Benefits:

Reduces Operational Costs - Average Savings $20 - $30 million per year

- Eliminates Unnecessary Patient (Bed Days Avg. 10%) 20,000 / 600 bed hospital
- Reduces delays, bottlenecks and emergency wait times

2. Improves Patient Safety & Reduces Hospital Financial and Operational Risks

- Converts Patient Safety Programs from reactive to proactive
- HAI Costs, penalties, legal actions, cash flow interruption
- Helps optimize staff deployment, workflows and resources
- Improves capacity by eliminating delays

3. Cuts Infection Control Surveillance workload by 80%

- Provides 24/7 automated Infection Surveillance
- Automates manual tasks and data searches
- Delivers online ready to use real time reporting
- Providing electronic “heads up” alerts on patient conditions
- Dramatically reduces workload, streamlines real time information

Infection Control - Patient Flow Manager

  1. 1. IC-PFM Infection Control - Patient-Flow Manager Decision Assist Software for Hospitals
  2. 2. Introduction: <ul><li>A recent 6 month pilot project of IC-PFM software. </li></ul><ul><li>Results were “beyond expectations with a projected capacity improvement of 5 - 10,000 days in one 600 bed hospital annually.” </li></ul><ul><li>Emergency wait times were reduced by 30%. </li></ul><ul><li>Infection control surveillance workload was reduced by 6 hours per 8-hour shift. </li></ul>
  3. 3. The Need: <ul><li>Unnecessary Patient Days are increasing costs, slowing capacity and creating wait time delays to timely health care. </li></ul><ul><li>Spiralling costs due to complex environments and increasing rates of Hospital Acquired Infections, are growing concerns for hospitals globally. </li></ul>
  4. 4. The Need: (Cont’d.) <ul><li>Increasing complexity with intricate health care processes, workflows and information systems add stress and dilute front line productivity. </li></ul><ul><li>Hospitals & health care workers need simplified information technology solutions to address both Patient Flow and Infection Surveillance workload problems. </li></ul>
  5. 5. IC-PFM Software Standing Out From The Rest
  6. 6. IC-PFM Optimization Software for Hospitals <ul><li>An “umbrella application” with real time interfacing to existing hospital data to plan each patient’s stay from “admittance” to “discharge”. </li></ul><ul><li>Careful, multiple hospital, front line workflow design to ensure ease of integration and fit into any hospital. </li></ul><ul><li>“ You have crystallized and automated a concept health care has been pursuing for 30 years.” </li></ul><ul><li>Professor Nancy Lawrence Nursing Professor DC-UOIT Canada </li></ul>
  7. 7. IC-PFM Unique Value Proposition: <ul><li>High Return on investment </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pilot project projected 20:1 return on investment. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Immediate benefits – benefits begin at installation. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Leverages return from existing hospital systems with richer function for much less cost with better return. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Installs quickly: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>6 -12 weeks depending on complexity of source data systems and dashboard tailoring. </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. 1. IC-PFM interfaces in real time to admit, discharge, and clinical patient activity. 2. Uses proprietary data technology to create a demographic profile for each patient. 3. IC-PFM researches history data for all previous profile matches & uses proprietary algorithms and data technology to deliver real time length of stay planning for every patient at admittance. 4. Nurses , coordinators and discharge professionals can adjust any patient’s plan to reflect any changes to the patient’s condition. 5. IC-PFM creates advance notices for post acute care providers like rehab, to prepare for patient’s discharge. IC-PFM delivers instant reports at all levels. How IC-PFM delivers: 1) Length of Stay Efficiency
  9. 9. 1. Interfaces to patient and infection control information activity in real time from all various hospital systems. 2. Uses proprietary data technology to create an infection control record for all patients identified by Infection control practitioners. 3. Provides tracking records of all patients “on precaution”, “isolation”, “quarantine”, “reportable” “off precaution”. 4. Tracks and reports all required: Lab, Digital Imaging, Medication, Organisms, Temperature. 5. Creates reports for regulatory requirements and Health Unit Reporting. How IC-PFM delivers: 2) Infection Surveillance Automation
  10. 10. IC-PFM Benefits: <ul><li>Easy to use: </li></ul><ul><li>From the paper world to electronic handheld information. </li></ul><ul><li>Saves unnecessary patient bed days creating increased capacity 5 - 10% and 30 % ER wait time reduction. </li></ul><ul><li>Provides instant tracking, saving staff and resource time. </li></ul><ul><li>Can be tailored quickly to unique hospital workflows. </li></ul><ul><li>Provides real time reports for effective management programs. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Unique Value Proposition: <ul><li>IC-PFM Infection Surveillance results: </li></ul><ul><li>Reduced the infection control daily census rounds </li></ul><ul><li>Freed up Infection Control Practitioners to do “prevention and control” enforcement. </li></ul><ul><li>Reduced instances of infection saving lives, costs and bed days. </li></ul><ul><li>Economical: </li></ul><ul><li>An “in your hand” technology that data mines, calculates and reports to specialized “Infection Control” requirements. </li></ul><ul><li>Straight Forward and Practical: </li></ul><ul><li>Can be presented on hand held, workstation, in wired or wireless environments. </li></ul>
  12. 12. IC-PFM Infection Control Benefits: <ul><li>Reduces manual census rounds by 4 hours per work day. </li></ul><ul><li>Reverses workload polarity from Reactive to Proactive </li></ul><ul><ul><li>- From outbreak detection (firefighting) to prevention. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Replaces paper census with electronic in your hand technology. </li></ul><ul><li>Eliminates laborious keying and rekeying of information. </li></ul><ul><li>Provides instant updating of a wide variety of real time reports. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Conclusion: <ul><li> has a long record of software development success across a variety of business platforms. </li></ul><ul><li>Experience and expertise has been applied to new products for the Health Care industry. </li></ul><ul><li>Proven new software that contributes to improving Patient Safety, Patient Flow and Patient Satisfaction. </li></ul><ul><li>Pilot demonstrated savings equal to 10,000 bed days and reduced surveillance by 4 hours per individual work shift. </li></ul><ul><li>We would be delighted to work with your organisation to achieve the range of benefits we have described. </li></ul>
