Truven Health Analytics Introduces New Time-Saving Enhancements in Micromedex 360 Care Insights for Real-Time Clinical Surveillance to Promote Antimicrobial Stewardship

ANN ARBOR, Mich. --(Business Wire)--

Truven Health Analytics™ today announced the release of enhancements to Micromedex® Pharmacy Intervention and Micromedex Infection Prevention, part of the Micromedex 360 Care Insights Suite of products. These solutions proactively monitor and conduct real-time clinical surveillance to quickly identify at-risk patients and intervention candidates,�as well as deliver patient-specific clinical decision support (CDS) at the point of care.

Included in this release:

  • Addition of Antibiogram to Pharmacy Intervention (already available in Infection Prevention), giving pharmacists the ability to further promote and strengthen their facility's antimicrobial stewardship program.
  • Auto-population of important patient-specific clinical data, including demographics, vital signs, laboratory results, test results, and microbiology results into patient intervention forms - saving clinician time, and reducing documentation and reporting errors.
  • A Hosted Server Option for hospitals or healthcare systems to transmit patient-specific clinical data to secure servers at Truven Health, saving valuable space and information technology resources, resulting in reduced costs.

"Hospitals are actively investing in their Antimicrobial Stewardship Programs to help minimize resistant organisms," saidTina Moen, Pharm.D., Chief Clinical Officer, Micromedex Solutions. "Employing intelligent technology solutions to make these programs cost-effective and efficient - without taking clinicians away from patient care for any longer than needed - is critical to achieving clinical and financial success."

Micromedex Pharmacy Intervention is a single-source clinical surveillance solution that combines the power of real-time, patient-specific monitoring with evidence-based resources for immediate, informed decision-making, improved outcomes, and reduced costs. All critical data is immediately available, including medication lists and dosages, vital signs, lab results, transcribed reports, I&Os, demographics, and more.

Micromedex Infection Prevention is a real-time clinical surveillance and reporting tool that helps infection prevention staff identify and avoid healthcare-associated infections, decrease "never events," easily report to the National Healthcare Safety Network with automated denominator data, and improve antimicrobial stewardship and infection prevention.
