General Electric is previewing a new clinical decision support software developed with the help of Intermountain Healthcare hospital system from Salt Lake City, UT. Using years of Intermountain’s clinical data from real world situations, the software is designed to monitor dozens of patients, display live data about them, and raise alerts when certain criteria are met. The package would sit on top of an already installed electronic medical record system and would use historical data about each patient to create appropriate alerts and warnings. According to GE, the pilot software will be launched at Intermountain in November and GE will unveil the full solution at the March meeting of the Healthcare Information Management and Systems Society (HIMSS).
Here’s Dr. Graham Hughes, Chief Medical Officer & Vice President of Product Strategy for GE demoing the software:
