Overview of Webinar

What if you could proactively identify patients at risk for clinical deterioration? Scarce resources within your organization mean that you have to be smart about which patients you focus on and when. Early intervention with the right patients at the right time is critical to saving lives and saving money. To make the right decisions, you need the right information at the right time – which is where the challenge often lies.

In this webinar, we will discuss two examples of healthcare organizations using Microsoft Amalga to help predict which patients will require additional attention so they can deploy resources effectively and consistently to meet patients' needs.

Key Takeaways

As an attendee, you will learn:
  • Learn how a prominent healthcare organization utilizes a MEWS in near real-time to mobilize a rapid response team
  • How a leading healthcare organization is using their current data to help manage a program designed to reduce venous thromboembolic events.
  • The value of managing care across a patient cohort, including how to identify patients at high risk of clinical deterioration.
