Quantros, a leading provider of clinically-focused data management and decision support solutions for the healthcare industry, has introduced its new Indicator ScorecardTM product. Part of the Quantros SRMTM (Safety and Risk Management) solution suite, Indicator Scorecard provides rate-based reporting on various adverse medical events for healthcare organizations interested in monitoring and improving their quality of care.
"As a result, providers can focus their improvement efforts on specific areas of care."
The Indicator Scorecard enables organizations to capture and report rate-based metrics. The application calculates various measures at the facility and corporate levels, using numerators from patient safety events captured in Safety Event ManagerTM and denominators from Denominator ManagerTM - both products within Quantros SRM.
Hospitals have long struggled to identify standard rates for adverse events such as falls, medication errors, and pressure ulcers. In addition to automating a labor-intensive, manual process, the Indicator Scorecard can also facilitate the demonstration of American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet status eligibility.
"With the rate-based metrics provided by Indicator Scorecard, hospitals and other healthcare providers gain a clearer understanding of how adverse events are impacting their patient safety environment," said Chris Bethell, Vice President of Marketing for Quantros. "As a result, providers can focus their improvement efforts on specific areas of care."
