One of Viewics’ agile analytics solutions, Viewics CKD ManagementTM can predict a chronic kidney disease (CKD) patient’s risk of kidney failure earlier and more accurately than traditional methods and recommends protocols which drive significant savings
SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 26, 2016 — Viewics, a healthcare-focused insights company that provides hospitals and health systems with laboratory-driven solutions for advanced analytics, today announced that it has developed Viewics CKD Management, a suite of analytics that employs a globally validated algorithm to accurately predict a CKD patient’s risk of end stage renal disease (ESRD). Viewics CKD Management is designed to provide primary care providers, nephrologists, and healthcare administrators with the solutions necessary for optimizing CKD patient care pathways. Viewics CKD Management can enable ACOs, health systems, payers, and dialysis providers to give better care, improve outcomes, and increase patient satisfaction, while realizing substantial cost savings.
Viewics CKD Management comprises a laboratory and electronic medical record (EMR) integration platform, personalized risk prediction for renal failure, automated and integrated care management recommendations for primary care physicians and nephrologists, and customized patient education reports. Viewics uses proprietary data extraction and cleansing technologies to transform raw laboratory and demographic data into a single patient risk score, which drives care protocol recommendations disseminated to providers in the form of dashboards. In addition, patients receive personalized reports detailing their risk of renal failure and care recommendations, designed to reduce anxiety and better engage them in their care.
“As ACOs and health systems increasingly adopt advanced analytics solutions, it makes sense to think about how they can leverage their rich, readily available laboratory data for predictive analytics and population health management,” commented Dhiren Bhatia, chief executive officer and co-founder of Viewics. “Viewics CKD Management provides a much-needed solution for CKD care management, given that the lack of accurate risk prediction is hampering clinical decisions and leading to suboptimal results.”
“We estimate that by using Viewics CKD Management an organization can generate about $2 million in savings for a population of 25,000 covered lives,” said Viewics chief medical informatics officer Eleanor Herriman, MD, MBA. “Viewics is committed to assisting healthcare organizations in their transition to value-based care through innovative products and services that support medical best practices and keep up with the rapid pace of change.”
Patient Safety & Quality Healthcare will be holding a free, Viewics-sponsored webinar Tuesday, May 10. The session will cover the prevalence of CKD, and demonstrate how Viewics CKD Management can revolutionize CKD care and save hospitals millions of dollars per year.
