SNOQUALMIE, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–As healthcare systems today face unprecedented clinical, financial, and staffing challenges, more than 40,000 professionals from throughout the global health ecosystem are expected to meet at this year’s Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference to learn about the newest innovations in healthcare technology. At this year’s conference, Spacelabs is partnering with Caregility and Equum Medical to demonstrate the power of connected digital health, from the bedside through to virtual care.
“Clearly, new solutions are needed, as it would take years to find and train a new generation of physicians, nurses and allied health professionals to fill all of these vacancies, and many of these other problems may become the new normal if we don’t act now.”
Attendees visiting the Caregility Cloud™ Ecosystem Pavilion at HIMSS 2023 will see first-hand how healthcare organizations can help accurately identify each patient’s physiological status, detecting patient deterioration and identifying intervention opportunities earlier with Spacelabs Rothman® Index predictive analytic.
“This is such a timely event for hospitals and health systems confronting a generational shift in the labor force, higher acuity patients and skyrocketing costs of care,” said Corey Scurlock, MD, MBA, Equum’s founder and CEO. “Clearly, new solutions are needed, as it would take years to find and train a new generation of physicians, nurses and allied health professionals to fill all of these vacancies, and many of these other problems may become the new normal if we don’t act now.”
Powered by machine learning, Spacelabs’ Rothman Index is the only clinically validated clinical decision support platform that derives a universal score of overall patient condition. By leveraging existing electronic health record (EHR) data, the Rothman Index drives actionable insights, creating a picture of any patient’s condition over time – any age, any disease, any care setting.
Spacelabs’ partnership with Caregility and Equum represents a powerful integration of virtual care with advanced patient analytics. “The rise of virtual caregivers assisting and augmenting in-person acute caregivers is helping mitigate the impact of staff shortages and address the rapid growth of the patient population,” states Pete McLain, Chief Strategy Officer at Caregility.
“Our mission is to empower care teams to achieve superior outcomes with high-quality actionable insights. Now integrated with Rothman Index’s powerful analytics, organizations investing strategically in virtual care will benefit from the predictive capabilities available through Spacelabs regardless of provider location,” stated Shalabh Chandra, President of Spacelabs Healthcare.
Spacelabs Healthcare, Equum Medical and other firms will be exhibiting at Caregility Booth 6815 in the North Hall of McCormick Place. Representatives will be on hand to answer questions and provide demonstrations of telehealth-enabled clinical service solutions.
