By now, we’ve all heard about the benefits and pitfalls of big data—in other peoples data systems. But now, it’s your job to make big data work in yours. That means getting practical, learning specific ways to deliver relevant clinical data to patients and caregivers with practically no effort or delay.
Netspective™ Contexxio® is our new medical application plug-in to help you make faster, more informed decisions at the point of care. We built it to help personalize any type of clinical content based on the specific data from the patient being viewed, and displaying it in context within any EHR or digital health application.
There’s more medical data than ever, but it’s getting harder to make it useful. Often, that’s because electronic records information can’t be easily linked to information that’s relevant to specific patients, healthcare providers, medical conditions or types of treatment.
The Contexxio plug-in functions as a clinical content delivery and patient education platform. Healthcare providers and organizations can use Contexxio to retrieve context sensitive information related to patients’ diagnoses, procedures, medical conditions and health plans. Contexxio uses the information collected from information providers like WebMD, PDR, CME etc to deliver relevant content to EHRs and other digital healthcare systems in real time.
This component analyzes context sensitive data from various information consumers like EHR, PHR, other healthcare applications and data captured from apps running within browsers. Using the information provided by the information providers like WebMD, PDR, CME and others, this module then applies rules to generate information (back to the information consumers) relevant to the captured data.
This component is responsible for storing the data coming in from the various information consumers. Contexxio uses the Lambda Architecture concept. Lambda Architecture is used to handle massive quantities of data in batch processing mode and real-time streams for urgent review. Contexxio also supports multiple types of data storage models (such as relational data, column stores, and Hadoop like storage).
The custom applications can use the incoming data for predictive analysis, disease and population profiling, data auditing etc.
Contexxio information blocks are widgets displayed prominently on pages of EHR, PHR and other healthcare applications. They consist of context-specific content provided by third-party applications.
Information blocks give healthcare providers immediate access to authoritative content. Quick access to highly relevant support information enables physicians, nurses, dieticians and others to make real-time healthcare decisions and reduce the time needed to provide care.
Contexxio uses its data analytics capabilities to look for topics in EHR data that are relevant to a specific patient’s care. Then, Contexxio provides links to content that supports current patient treatment and healthcare planning.
Contexxio information buttons provide links on the EHR display to third-party reference information that supports clinical decision making.
The Contexxio medical content plug-in provides immediate access to a wide variety of content that helps to improve healthcare. You can install Contexxio in EMR, EHR and PHR systems, and in wellness, fitness and other healthcare-related applications.
Although it’s common to add Contexxio to an EMR, EHR or PHR system, some healthcare facilities don’t permit this. You can avoid this obstacle by using the Contexxio browser extension.
Healthcare providers can add the extension to their browser and enjoy the same functionality that they would get by using the Contexxio plug-in. The extension automatically identifies the healthcare application running on the browser, captures the information and links it to relevant resources or information.
Because caregivers use, different browsers, Contexxio extensions are available for:
To improve patient activation, Contexxio includes a patient compliance program based on its loyalty and rewards engine. Patients are encouraged to engage fully in their healthcare plan by receiving loyalty points for each program activity they perform and record in their healthcare plan page
Healthcare costs are rising. It’s essential that patients make the most of each healthcare dollar they spend. That means understanding and following their healthcare plan. Patient activation programs encourage and support patients in their ongoing care. It keeps them better informed about their condition and helps them play an active role in their healthcare.
Activated patients are engaged. They are better able to communicate with their caregivers, experience fewer medical errors, receive better care and are generally better satisfied with their healthcare system.
Education and better support from caregivers go a long way in increasing patient activation. Getting patients activated means:
