In order to assist eliminate undertreatment, Vizient, Inc., the biggest member-driven health care performance improvement firm in the country, today announced a strategic cooperation agreement with Mpirik, a cloud-based care pathway software company with a focus on cardiac care. Through the use of technology, including artificial intelligence, the strategic alliance increases access to patient evaluation and clinical programmes that enhance treatment and address health disparities (AI).
“We are excited to have this strategic partnership agreement with Mpirik and offer clinical programs that utilize artificial intelligence to help physicians quickly identify at-risk patients based on multiple clinical risk factors”, “Through our recent pilot program, we have seen this platform help member health systems improve patient monitoring and reduce undertreatment that may come from disparities tied to gender or race. Improving outcomes provides a win for patients and providers.”
Bryan Grossman, SVP strategic supplier performance and category management for Vizient
Under the agreement, Vizient members who participate will have access to:
1. Automatic cardiac at-risk patient identification for better results:
The electronic health record (EHR) of the health system will be used by Mpirik’s algorithms to analyse diagnostic data, clinician notes, and timetables to decide whether a patient has one of 18 heart illnesses and the best course of treatment.
2. Time from echocardiography to intervention is reduced as a result of automated patient identification alerts:
Clinicians and/or administrators can examine their patient population using the Cardiac Intelligence® platform, manage identified patients to eliminate undertreatment, and receive automatic alert alerts on patients detected without a suitable follow-up plan.
3. Real-time aggregate reporting to enhance market growth potential and health equity:
To gain insights into their patient population, including quality/data outliers, therapy outcomes, population heat maps by zip code, and much more, health institutions can access customizable, real-time aggregate reporting dashboards.
“Artificial intelligence solutions will be instrumental as a part of clinical practice to augment health care professionals”, “Having a chance to utilize AI tools such as Mpirik’s Cardiac Intelligence® gives me the confidence in how AI can be an effective part of my practice while helping drive better patient outcomes.”
Dr. Sanjaya Gupta, Electrophysiologist at Saint Luke’s Health System
“We are incredibly excited for the opportunity to expand our reach through the robust Vizient network”, “Vizient shares our vision to utilize the best tools available to drive performance improvement. Our A.I. platform currently analyzes over 30,000 patients per month to ensure cardiac patients are adhering to an appropriate care pathway. This strategic partnership will provide more access to the rigorous quality initiatives that provide the best care and outcomes for patients.”
