MetaVision provides a rich resource for producing clinical research. Read abstracts of studies based on data extracted from MetaVision.
Computerised information systems favoured standardisation of nutritional care and monitoring, thus decreasing time required for writing and computations. Follow-up was improved and nutrient delivery was closer to target values, thus increasing quality of care. In burn patients, the better data visibility was associated with significant improvement in nutrient delivery.Read Abstract MetaVision improves the quality of nutritional support
Users quickly accepted the system, and both automatic and manual data entry were found to be accurate and reliable, while the prevalence of artefacts was relatively low. MetaVision can be easily implemented and used instead of paper charts.Read Abstract Implementing MetaVision in an anaesthesia department
Between November 2005 and June 2006, 1340, 2715, and 1035 patients were included in the control, DS and post-DS periods, respectively. During the control period, 38% of all high-risk patients were prescribed PONV prophylaxis. This increased to 73% during the DS period and decreased to 37% in the post-DS period.Read Abstract Use of MetaVision increases guideline adherence for prescribing PONV prophylaxis
A study published in Critical Care found that optimal nutritional therapy improves ICU, 28-day and hospital survival in female ICU patients. MetaVision helped determine optimal nutrition by providing data from indirect calorimetric measurements.Read Abstract MetaVision helps determine optimal nutrition during mechanical ventilation, which decreases mortality in critically ill, long-term acute female patients
A study done at Universitaire Ziekenhuizen Leuven reviews literature about the transition to a computerised system for ORs and ICUs, and outlines a nine-step process for implementation.Read Abstract UZ Leuven publishes implementation guidelines based on experience with MetaVision
The rate of alarm reactivation at baseline (Stage I) was 22%, increased to 63% (Stage II), and again to 83% during Stage III (P < 0.001). The spontaneous alarm reactivation rate before the appearance of the electronic reminder on the anaesthesia information management system screen increased from 19% at Stage II to 42% at stage III (P < 0.001).Read Abstract MetaVision Event Manager improves reactivation of CPB monitor
A study conducted at Paul Brousse Hospital in France evaluated the impact of implementing MetaVision upon standard ICU patient outcomes, and found a 20% reduction in length of stay. MetaVision was customised in order to trace the model followed before implementation by creating screens for various clinical, biological and radiological parameters, and for guidelines, procedures and policies such as blood glucose control, enteral and parenteral feeding, insulin infusion rate, and antibiotics administration. According to the study, “We believe that the clinically relevant differences concerning the length of stay in our ICU resulted from an improved quality of care following the implementation of ICIS [sic]."Read Abstract Length of stay reduced by 20% at Paul Brousse Hospital
Research at the paediatric ICU at the Schneider Children’s Medical Center, Israel, shows that prescription errors and potential adverse drug events were significantly reduced through the use of MetaVision's decision support capabilities. Specifically, adverse drug events were reduced by 72%, while medication prescription errors fell from 5.5% to a mere 0.7%. This shows the extent to which MetaVision can prevent weight-based calculation errors, which are of particular significance in paediatrics.Read Abstract MetaVision Decision Support tools reduce prescription errors by 83%
A study at the VU University Medical Centre showed that MetaVision and its decision support tools allow for significantly improved early delivery of nutrition in the ICU. After installing MetaVision, the percentage of patients with adequate nutrients delivered by day 4 in the ICU increased from 30.2% to 56.5%, in accordance with ICU guidelines. Recent literature shows that nutrition protocol management and guideline adherence is critical to shortening ICU stays and reducing patient mortality.Read Abstract MetaVision improves early and adequate delivery of nutrients in the ICU
A new study of critically ill patients at Lehigh Valley Hospital has found significantly reduced mortality rates, after implementing a health IT bundle including MetaVision. The hospital used MetaVision as the ICU’s electronic medical record, and MVcentral for telemonitoring, to achieve intensivist bedside coverage 24/7. LVH published that after implementing MetaVision, among other technologies, mortality fell from 21.4% to 14.7% (a reduction of 31.3%).Read Abstract Study shows 31% reduced mortality rate using MetaVision
