Launched in June 2014, the integration of this data supports streamlined workflow, reduced cost, improved quality and responsiveness of therapy, and automated access to data for analytical and clinical outcome decision support.
Data generated by PAP devices, such as the ResMed S9 series and AirSense™ 10 series, enables medical professionals to remotely monitor patient therapy compliance to take appropriate action based on specific outcomes. With ResMed’s AirView connection to Fairview’s Epic EHR, clinicians now have access to patient PAP therapy data within their EHR system, eliminating the need to log in to multiple patient management systems to view patient outcomes.
Key features enabled with this solution include:
• boarding of sleep therapy patients from the EHR into the ResMed AirView patient management system;
• daily updating of PAP therapy effectiveness data from the patient’s home directly into the EHR via AirView;
• sleep health therapy management workflow and tracking tools embedded in the EHR, displaying key patient PAP metrics for various time intervals, customized to meet the needs of Fairview clinicians; and
• creation of a secure patient data warehouse to support advanced analytics such as the impact of sleep apnea on comorbid conditions.
“The healthcare system is under significant pressure to drive down the cost of care while still delivering exceptional patient outcomes,” said Raj Sodhi, Vice President, Healthcare Informatics at ResMed. “Sleep apnea represents one area where technology integration can play a key role in making that happen.”
