Today’s Office Based Lab presents a very intricate and complicated healthcare environment. The challenges presented by the different treatment ‘ecosystems’ and rapid transitions in the care continuum, represent one of healthcare’s most diverse delivery models.
Medstreaming has introduced the first ‘All in One’ approach to tie together the different stories being told as the patient moves through the complex steps, starting with Diagnostic Testing and completing the treatment cycle with a successful intervention. The challenge in this space is very similar to what Healthcare Information Technology professionals have struggled with for decades. The lack of continuity with these ‘Multi-Discipline’ care delivery strategies is very difficult to integrate and piece together. Medstreaming uses the ‘All in One’ approach and some very specific innovations to successfully create critical efficiencies and deliver the best point of care results.


Solving Problems with Data Management


One of the many challenges facing a new or existing OBL is the amount of data that administrators, operators, nursing staff, and physicians have to interpret on a daily basis. Much of this data is compiled and exists only in paper form. Compounding the problem is the diversity of data and devices and modalities that create it. A very diverse and compelling wealth of data is produced in the form of conventional ultrasound imaging, ‘office visit’ notes, sketch diagrams, patient monitoring, catheterization devices, hemodynamic devices and patient medications. These pieces of information can be leveraged to create actionable treatments and the data can be aggregated to help providers to promote guided decision support.


The Right Solution for Managing Your Center


Medstreaming’s ‘All in One’ brings together imaging, diagnostics, and traditional practice management and EMR in a single informatics workflow application designed specifically for the OBL market. With this complete offering, data preserves its structure and remains whole throughout the patient treatment cycle from the practice management module to the imaging modality and back into the EMR. The system optimizes workflow, eliminates manual entry, and enhances patient safety and clinical accuracy with one unified solution. This end-to-end solution should be supported with a single back-end database and web-based analytics engine.
Tying the intra-procedural workflow to the inventory management software in the OBL provides fast and accurate case costing and monitoring. The effects of a change in personnel or medical device can be instantaneously calculated. The Center can calculate case costing, device utilization, consignment stock and medication utilization, and factor in staffing costs and metrics.


The Next Generation of Medicine-Predictive Analytics


Unified, structured IT workflow/fusion layers will help drive a better data model. The better data model can quickly contribute to a full clinical data modeling and predictive analytics backbone. The precision of the ‘Medstreaming Acquisition Engine,’ with the tool sets that are utilized with GFW and the Modality Connectivity, builds the most complete database in healthcare. The most advantageous byproducts that can be derived from this approach are the data model, actionable intelligence, predictive analytics and clinical decision support. Medstreaming will enable your center to create validated treatment and diagnostic protocols, and monitor efficacy long term.

Graphic Fusion Workflow™

Graphic Fusion Workflow™ allows physicians to create treatment plans or develop clinical findings by drawing on specialty-based diagrams. GFW technology provides a graphical history and sketches library containing different parts of the anatomy. The drawings correlate with the database and create structured language, further supporting the quest to create minable data in all facets of the digital solution. An encounter that might have required 15 to 20 clicks and many minutes of time in a typical EMR platform would only take a few seconds using this new technology. These types of technologies also create communication efficiencies by providing a visual medical history, which quickly orients the physician to the patient’s past procedures and diagnostic studies.
