Researchers aiming to connect patient records with flight med crews © CureMD Healthcare
CWRU Research • Researches from the Case Western Reserve University’s (CWRU) nursing school are aiming to establish a connection between hospital patient records and medical flight crews • They are aiming to do this based on research that when local hospitals transfer patients to higher-level care facilities, there is a 30% higher death rate than if they had stayed put • At the moment, flight medical crews do not have access to electronic health records from various hospitals because of lack of interoperability
CWRU Research • A CWRU instructor, Andrew Reimer, says he and his group is working on technology that takes information from patient charts to make a complete picture of a patient’s medical situation • They plan on using information gathered from hospital charts, flight crew and the new • It is quite cumbersome to extract medical information such as patient demographics, medical and surgical histories, procedures, laboratory, pharmacy, vital signs, billing data and patient outcomes
CWRU Research • The CWRU researchers have created a digital template that creates a table with 42 areas of information to fill in order to make data reporting more consistent • Initial tests by the researchers have yielded “some success” with the Cleveland Clinical Hospital System by connecting the flight and hospital information for patients transported to the facility • Data transfer between health IT systems is often inadequate from a patient-safety point of view, according to a new analysis of HIT related safety events by the Patient Safety Organization ECRI Institute
CWRU Research • The report highlighted issues such as inadequate data transfer, poorly functioning systems, poor system configurations and inaccurate data entry in patient records
