Onslow Memorial Hospital is using Jvion’s Cognitive Clinical Success Machine to target patients on a trajectory to becoming at-risk of a readmission. Not only is the provider able to more effectively target at-risk patients, they are able to apply the most effective clinical action that will improve outcomes and ensure patient engagement.
Like most hospitals, Onslow Memorial Hospital is looking for more effective ways to reduce readmissions. Driven in large part by the Hospital Readmission Reduction Program (HRRP), the return of a patient to the hospital within 30 days of discharge has been a key focus area for hospitals across the nation. While many providers are struggling to leverage limited resources and technology, Onslow Memorial Hospital saved close to $1M in just months by incorporating advanced clinical cognitive capabilities delivered by cognitive machine leader Jvion.
The project, which has been championed by Onslow Memorial Hospital CEO Penney Burlingame Deal, DHA, is part of an overarching move to strengthen the hospital operationally, clinically, and financially. “We wanted to incorporate the best technology that would help our patients stay healthy once discharged from the hospital,” said Deal. “Jvion’s Cognitive Clinical Success Machine is a key part of our solution. It delivers the most effective risk and intervention insights that help our caregivers identify at-risk individuals as early as possible and take the best action that will stop someone from returning to the hospital.”
Jvion’s Cognitive Clinical Success Machine is integrated with Onslow Memorial Hospital’s MEDITECH EHR. Patient predisposition, risk, and recommended intervention information is delivered directly into the workflow and is designed to work just like a Vital Sign Capture. The result is a seamless experience that makes the best use of advanced cognitive power and hospital resources.
“The underlying technology that drives Jvion’s Cognitive Clinical Success Machine is able to account for the external, socioeconomic factors that influence a patient’s risk and it does this using the data that we already have on hand without the requirement for a data lake or warehouse,” explained Deal. “By marrying the latest and best in cognitive science with the talented resources at Onslow Memorial Hospital, we are driving beyond our readmission goals to improve quality and thrive under at-risk models of care.”
