Lung Connect

Reduce ED visits for lung cancer patients. If we can predict ED utilization, we can intervene in the high-risk population, and prevent ED visits

CHF Wired

Optimize coordination of care across the continuum for heart failure patients. The effort, referred to as “WIRED” is an acronym for the pathway of care developed by our multidisciplinary team with a goal of identifying heart failure patients in the Hospital and deploying targeted interventions based on risk. WIRED represents five vital pieces for HF care regardless of location.

Obstetrics - Early Warning System (OB-EWS)

Reduce a women's risk of hemorrhage or infection during and after labor and delivery. If we can detect hemorrhage and infection earlier than we can improve patient outcomes, shorten LOS lower ED utilization.
