Transforming Real-World Data Into Actionable Insights

2:30pm - 3:30pm Thursday, March 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W209C

Description

A tremendous amount of data is generated and stored in US hospitals, including data captured in the EHR/EMR and various diagnostic devices, systems, and other sources. As devices evolve, the volume and granularity of data increases. Researchers, clinicians, and hospital leaders are investigating ways to harness this data in order to improve patient outcomes. While this data is increasingly available, accessing it, associating distinct data points across software platforms, and analyzing it to identify specific outcomes is not an easy task. Our novel retrospective study included data from Point-of-Care (POC) device and middleware, and associated core lab and EHR patient data. Our analyses revealed the incidence and root cause of errors in POC testing, materials waste, and the subsequent impact of errors on patient management and care. This study demonstrates that reliance on single data sources or device generated reports may not adequately identify opportunities to improve patient outcomes.

Learning Objectives

  • Analyze the process the team used to aggregate data from various sources
  • Explain the importance of each data source and why it was included in the study
  • Discuss the implications of this analysis and how it can be used to impact patient care
  • Discuss the implications of this analysis and how it can be applied to other studies in different settings
  • Hypothesize other studies in different settings with different devices that might benefit from a similar analysis
