Press Release
PeraHealth to Showcase Clinical Surveillance Solutions at AONE 2018

Predictive use of nursing assessments leads to lower mortality and readmissions

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (April 11, 2018) – PeraHealth, a provider of predictive, real-time clinical surveillance solutions, will demonstrate its research-based technology and solutions at the 2018 American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) Annual Meeting, themed “Inspiring Leaders,” in Indianapolis from April 12-15.

PeraHealth’s solutions, including PeraTrend, PeraAnalytics, and PeraWatch, are powered by the Rothman Index (RI), a comprehensive measure of patient condition for healthcare providers, using hospitals’ existing EHRs and hundreds of real-time data points to quantify and visualize patient deterioration, risk, and improvement. While other solutions depend on vital signs, the peer-reviewed RI model uses a range of physiological measures – including labs, vital signs and nursing assessments – and produces a continuous measure of patient condition, across diseases, conditions and care settings, trended over time.

The broad-based inclusion of nursing assessments is unique to the Rothman Index, and it is the basis of several patents held by PeraHealth. Long before problems manifest as vital sign derangement, nursing assessments pick up more subtle clues. Every body-system assessment contains predictive power to help clinicians identify patients at elevated risk of an adverse outcome.

“Our partner health systems and their nurses have been using the Rothman Index and powerful insights from nursing assessments to drive reductions in care variation,” says Carolyn Scott, RN, M.Ed., MHA, PeraHealth’s Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Officer. “I look forward to seeing my fellow nurse leaders at AONE to share successful strategies for enhancing the delivery of patient-centered value-based care, including mortality reduction, earlier identification of sepsis, mitigating codes and safety events, as well as enhancing the care management process.”

PeraHealth invites attendees to stop by booth #1231 or reserve a meeting slot ahead of time to learn more about the impact PeraHealth solutions are making on healthcare organizations and to play the virtual patient predictive analytics game, “Which Patient?”.
