For the second year in a row, one of our innovative customers has cited work resulting from our partnership as part of their Davies award win! We are so proud of our amazing clients and their impacts on the health of their patients. Congratulations Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) on your 2017 Davies award and recognition for an “outstanding achievement of organizations that use health information technology to improve patient care while achieving cost savings.”
Starting in 2016, Prominence partnered with LVHN to tackle some exciting data challenges. With 8 hospitals and 22 health centers across eastern Pennsylvania, they were interested in expanding their use of governed data and the power of Tableau to tackle sepsis. We were excited to share our Epic workflow knowledge, our wide experience with Sepsis analytics, and our data governance best practices through our collaboration.
LVHN’s focus was to reduce sepsis mortality through process flow improvement, EHR workflow enhancement and analytics to better inform and alert care providers. They created a large task force to review sepsis holistically and tasked Prominence to implement a successful analytics program that empowered their clinical and quality teams to measure, track, and improve the quality of care they provide for septic patients.
