PeraHealth, a provider of predictive, real-time clinical surveillance solutions, announces its membership in Epic’s App Orchard to allow seamless integration into Epic’s EHR platform. As an App Orchard contributor, PeraHealth will utilize application programming interfaces (APIs), which serve as a bridge between Epic tools and third-party software products to enable greater collaboration, integration and seamless workflow.
PeraTrend, PeraHealth’s clinical surveillance solution, provides clinicians with a visual dashboard of the patient’s condition in real-time, allowing them to detect subtle, potentially life-threatening changes at either a nursing unit level or across the hospital for real-time clinical surveillance. Powered by the Rothman Index (RI), a general measure of patient condition for healthcare providers, PeraHealth’s solutions can be easily integrated into a provider’s existing EHR, utilizing real-time data to quantify and visualize patient acuity and risk.
Yale New Haven Hospital, a non-profit, 1,541-bed tertiary medical center in Connecticut, currently leverages PeraHealth’s technology, which uses APIs from App Orchard, across its sites to help improve patient outcomes. Yale New Haven clinicians are able to leverage key features from the EHR platform within PeraTrend, including a customized patient list called My List – meaning a clinician can extend the functionality of My List in the PeraTrend dashboard to view the condition of patients only on their list.
“Having access to third party solutions, like PeraHealth, which smoothly integrate with our EHR platform allows our organization to truly get the most out of our EHR investment,” says Lisa Stump, SVP and CIO at Yale New Haven Health and Yale School of Medicine. “Our team has been able to integrate key features from Epic into PeraTrend that enable a seamless workflow and help improve quality of care, ultimately increasing value for the patient.”
