Expanded clinical guidelines cover procedures, medications, and laboratory testing at the point of care.
Madison, WI (November 29, 2016) – National Decision Support Company (NDSC) announces expanded CareSelect solutions that cover a wide variety of care settings and healthcare services including the ABIM Foundation’s Choosing Wisely® Campaign.
“Through our relationship with the American College of Radiology, NDSC has refined our unique competence to render clinical guidelines for actionable EMR delivery, with consideration to both the user experience and all available clinical information,” said Michael Mardini, CEO, NDSC. “We have developed this skill and our CareSelect solution through our foundational work in imaging, where NDSC’s CareSelect Imaging solution is now the market standard.”
NDSC’s proven ability to accurately render clinical guidelines for EMR delivery, leverage existing clinical documentation and create a seamless user experience within the EMR workflow has earned the trust of the market. The company’s expanded CareSelect solution now includes clinical and business logic covering medication, lab, and blood management, as well as a complete set of advisories based on the Choosing Wisely® Campaign.
The CareSelect platform exchanges data with the EMR in real-time to perform clinical calculations against evidence based guidelines and pathways. This enables the caregiver to choose alternate tests or clinical pathways based on the guideline. This advanced functionality can be coupled with the CareSelect benchmarking and reporting tools to ensure success.
“Our technology platform is uniquely designed to compute guidelines against all available EMR data, delivering sophisticated clinical logic that is not constrained by, nor disruptive to the design of the EMR,” said Mardini. “Unlike solutions that attempt to adapt and embed clinical logic into the EMR, CareSelect solutions compliment the EMR with sophisticated guideline delivery and management tools.”
The CareSelect platform enables the delivery, management and localization of clinical guidelines that range from simple appropriate use criteria, to complex level of care admission level logic. The platform simplifies the configuration of the EMR and leverages all available clinical data to ensure that guidelines are accurately delivered.
“It is not enough to build a simple logic tree from a guideline,” said Mardini. “To create impact one must consider all available data, the point at the workflow in which the guideline is delivered, and the overall user experience.”
CareSelect decision support solutions respect the EMR user experience with a focus to deliver only the most credible evidence based content. The platform provides the key tool for health systems to improve patient outcomes, reduce gaps and variations in care and reduce excessive spending on inappropriate exams.
As NDSC looks forward to 2017, we are embracing the expanded scope of our decision support solutions and introducing the CareSelect™ brand. Follow us on twitter @CareSelectNDSC.
