Medigy improves care delivery and decision making by identifying care gaps using well established condition-, treatment-, and demography-specific protocols.
Planning medical diagnosis and treatment has always been complex. Consider the variables:
Is there any surprise that data gaps, conflicts and duplications occur? Or that there are differences between treatment provided and industry-standard guidelines?
There’s a need for a system that:
The Netspective™ Medigy® framework enables healthcare providers and administrators to support and accelerate all of these processes across medical conditions, locations and types of treatment.
Netspective Medigy is a framework built specifically to support enterprise healthcare and medical informatics applications. Medigy provides healthcare IT professionals, independent software vendors, consultants, and systems integrators with tools that simplify the development of healthcare applications.
We built Medigy as an electronic health record (EHR) add-on. Medigy provides the platform, applications and services that you need to monitor and coordinate treatment of patients across different treatments, locations and healthcare systems.
Medigy enables healthcare providers to:
Use Medigy to:
Medigy is built on a secure, HIPAA-compliant, Meaningful Use certifiable, open source foundation that can support any innovative healthcare application you’re thinking of deploying. The platform can support any healthcare application you can design and deploy. And, it can integrate with EHR systems, hospital applications, patient management systems, content management systems, and dozens of other healthcare IT platforms and applications
The platform includes a robust set of EHR modules, a sophisticated open source data integration layer with complex event management capabilities, a terabyte-scale data management infrastructure, a modern mobile apps enablement layer, and the world’s most heavily used content management framework. You can use its scalable, open source packages throughout the stack to help you save licensing costs and avoid paying success taxes.
Data Aggregator and Processor
Population Health Management (PHM) focuses on improving the health of defined groups of individuals by the proactive application of strategies and interventions in order to deliver care in a secure, cost effective and clinically effective manner. Large amounts of data are available to hospitals and other healthcare systems. However, providing value to the data and making it available and accessible to physicians at the point of care is key to delivering real time information powered care.
Medigy functions as an EHR add-on leveraging data to redesign care. It helps power clinical decisions to advance patient outcomes, improve quality, and lower costs.
Medigy facilitates PHM by making data accessible to physicians at the point of care. Use Medigy to:
Healthcare providers are using ever-growing volumes of data to understand how they can use this information to improve patient outcomes.
With patient data collected at various points of care, there’s a lot of information available for analysis. When collected from various sources, this data must be aggregated and reconciled to identify gaps, duplications and conflicts. When data is harmonized, it can be used to improve healthcare coordination and standardization.
Use Medigy Care Coordination Services to:
Effective data capture and analytics are vital to predicting chances of illness, preventing hospitalization, reducing the rate of re-admissions and ensuring high-quality care. By connecting to your EHR and other clinical systems, Medigy uses the data from these systems to measure differences from standard clinical guidelines and provides preventive care information. Medigy predictive analytics identify patients or groups of patients who are prone to illness and might need care early on.
Medigy can help ACOs track quality metrics and improve quality scores.
You can use Medigy to:
Genetics holds the promise of healthcare providers finding out which drug is the most effective for each patient and each condition. However, current EHR systems cannot handle genetic information, as well as data standards, security, privacy or scalability. So, there are many problems that must be solved before genomic information can used in medical treatment.
However, Medigy can address some of these problems by:
Understanding patient behavior plays a major role in improving patient health. This is especially true when providers manage chronic conditions that occur due to unhealthy lifestyles. Wearable devices such as blood pressure sensors enable constant data collection and monitoring of patient health. By using wearables to collect data over time, physicians can better understand patient behavior and its connection to patient health.
Patients are usually diagnosed with a medical history—their own story of diseases, symptoms and conditions. Data from wearable devices can provide additional information, which helps diagnose the patient’s condition better and provide a more appropriate treatment.
Wearable devices include:
Many healthcare providers don’t educate their patients so they can make informed decisions about treatment and care. Even if providers try to inform patients, many get overwhelmed and fail to follow even simple instructions.
It’s possible to improve patient activation levels. But to do it, healthcare systems must provide patients with better support and communicate healthcare information more effectively. Medigy enables better patient activation. It provides tools and access to healthcare information that improves communication and outcomes and reduces healthcare costs.
There’s no lack of data in modern healthcare. But your healthcare system probably has many obstacles to using data effectively and improving patient outcomes.
Start with technology issues such as lack of proper tools, disparate data sources and the need for high-speed, high-volume data analytics. Then add factors such as the lack of advanced workforce skills and your organizational culture. All of these problems can limit your ability to help your patients and help you run your healthcare system more efficiently.
Healthcare Data for Better Decision Making
Netspective™ Medigy®, our healthcare data framework, helps you overcome these and other data-related issues. We designed Medigy to help healthcare professionals and organizations use their clinical and operations data to make better decisions.
Here are a few of the many ways to use Medigy in your healthcare system:
Medigy provides the platform, applications and services that you need to make use of your data to monitor and coordinate treatment of patients across different treatments, locations and healthcare systems.
Discover Hidden Value in Data Your Patients Provide
What’s So Important About Patient-Generated Data?
Research shows that PGHD use reduces readmission rates, length of hospitalization stays, and healthcare costs.
The increasing use of self-monitoring devices by patients to improve their health is revolutionizing care. Patients can decide with whom to share their data. If they feel that it will be safe and can improve their care and reduce costs, they are usually willing it share it with their physicians. This provides healthcare professionals with data that was unavailable before. Hence, it gives them an opportunity to treat acute and chronic illnesses like never before.
Use Medigy in these applications of preventive and chronic care management:
Medigy contributes to preventive care by predicting early signs of disease, constantly monitoring patient health and sending physician alerts when it detects abnormal values.
With increase in the number of pattern recognition tools over the past decade, it is now possible for converting radiological images into mineable data, called radiomic data, which can be further analyzed for decision support. Early on, images were merely treated as pictures and were interpreted visually. Radiomic data, combined with other kinds of patient data can be used for diagnostic and predictive analysis. Radiomic data is now emerging as a key factor playing a major role in Imaging Decision Support Systems (IDSS).
Netspective IDSS, which is a part of Netspective Medigy, provides a decision support system that gives doctors faster access to the information they need to make quicker, better and informed decisions, thereby providing quality and cost-effective care, resulting in healthier patients.
Netspective IDSS is used by radiologists, oncologists as well as researchers in the field of medicine.
