A study recently published in the European Journal of Anaesthesiology shows a dramatic increase in adherence to prophylaxis administration guidelines using MetaVision, at OLVG hospital. Using MetaVision decision support tools, the Hospital was able to increase timely delivery of both dexamethasone and granisetron from 39% to 79%. The study concluded “decision support is effective in improving administration and timing of PONV prophylaxis medication”.Read Abstract Adherence to drug guidelines doubles with MetaVision
A study published by MetaVision users at University Hospital of Lausanne (CHUV) shows that using CIS facilitates glucose control, improves nutritional monitoring and the quality of nutrition, and reduces nurse workload. MetaVision has been operational in the hospital since 1999, and over the years it was installed in the hospital’s entire ICU (32 beds), surgical ICU, cardiac surgery, intermediate care and Division of Neonatology.Read Abstract MetaVision helps reduce hypoglycaemia and malnutrition in ICUs
A study at Universitaire Ziekenhuizen Leuven assessed the impact of a blood glucose (BG) alert generated by MetaVision on tight glycaemic control (TGC) in the ICU. The study found that the alert was able to further improve the quality of BG control, as shown by a reduced mean BG per patient, a lower glycaemic penalty index and hyperglycaemic index, and a lower number of patients with hyperglycaemia, without increasing the need for blood sampling. According to the study, “The finding that a simple electronic alert system can improve the quality and safety of TGC, even in a setting where protocols for TGC were already in place at a high level of experience, is striking.”Read Abstract Universitaire Ziekenhuizen Leuven uses MetaVision to improve the quality and safety of tight glycaemic control
A study from Anesthesiology Clinics reviews the impact of AIMS with decision support at various hospitals, including a clinical improvement at Massachusetts General Hospital using MetaVision.Read Abstract Review of AIMS benefits: Proven results in the areas of quality, safety, and operational efficiency
Research published in Anesthesia and Analgesia shows that MetaVision decision support tools increased compliance with SCIP indicators and improved outcomes at Lehigh Valley Health Network (Allentown, PA). After implementation, compliance with documentation and administration of antibiotics within 60 minutes of surgical incision increased from 62% to 92%, and was associated with a decrease in the incidence of SSI from 1.1% to 0.7%.Read Abstract MetaVision increases SCIP compliance for antibiotic timing from 62% to 92%
Clinicians at the University Hospital of Lausanne (CHUV) report that MetaVision improves patient safety and treatment accuracy and has a significant impact on their daily workload. Using MetaVision, CHUV was able to reduce malnutrition, minimise ICU patient weight loss, and identify potentially dangerous conditions in newborns. MetaVision shortened the time required for computations and clerical reporting by 30 minutes per shift, enabling clinicians to spend more time on patient care.Read Abstract CHUV increases quality of nutritional support in ICUs and improves newborn care with MetaVision
Massachusetts General Hospital customised the MetaVision Anaesthesia Information Management System (AIMS) to ensure that anaesthesia providers complete a separate quality assurance data collection program. As a result, the hospital increased their ability to capture adverse events by 92%.Read Abstract MetaVision helps Massachusetts General Hospital increase ability to capture adverse events by 92%
A study done at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals National Health Service Foundation Trust (STH), UK, found that using MetaVision, critical care pharmacists made a significant number of medication recommendations, and these recommendations had a high acceptance rate (>90%) by medical staff. According to the study, “This system improves communication between both professional groups within the critical care team, and supports clinical practice including remote review of patients over multiple sites.”Read Abstract MetaVision facilitates pharmacist medication recommendations in Sheffield, UK
In order to comply with new Joint Commission physician credentialing and privileging standards, Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston created an evaluation system based on electronic anaesthesia data automatically captured by the MetaVision AIMS (Anaesthesia Information Management System). MetaVision provided "reliable and extensive documentation of clinical monitoring and physician practice patterns" which was used to assess clinical performance.Read Abstract MGH creates novel, efficient evaluation system based on data automatically extracted from MetaVision
A study done by The Johns Hopkins Hospital concludes that data provided by MetaVision can help optimise blood management, and has the potential to “enhance patient safety, reduce costs, and conserve blood, a valuable and scarce resource.” An analysis of data acquired by MetaVision revealed significant variation in blood usage among surgical services and surgical procedures, and among individual anaesthesiologists and surgeons. This data may be used for standardising transfusion practices and as the basis of a quality improvement program. Additionally, these findings can be used to predict intraoperative requirements, preventing the costly mistake of ordering more blood products than necessary.Read Abstract The Johns Hopkins Hospital study shows MetaVision may be used to optimise blood product usage
