Published: Monday, October 4, 2010 - 13:00

(Quantros: San Francisco) -- Quantros, a provider of clinically-focused data management and decision support solutions for the health care industry, demonstrated several new patient safety and quality improvement solutions at the National Association for Healthcare Quality (NAHQ) Annual Educational Conference, held Sept. 30–Oct. 3 in Kansas City, Missouri.

Quantros has new solutions designed to help health care providers improve patient safety and quality:

Core measures application. A new platform offers enhanced functionality for easier core measures data management, workflow, and reporting.

Safety insight. A new software product allows users to identify and manage patient-safety events and hospital acquired conditions (HACs).

Allscripts QLink. A new case-management tool offers improved connectivity with safety and quality data.

IRIS. This powerful new clinical business intelligence solution provides stakeholders a customized array of key decision support information at their fingertips.

Educational session

Sharon Norton, RN, certified professional in health care quality (CPHQ),  and a training and implementation specialist for Quantros, co-hosted an educational session at the NAHQ conference with Ann E. Victor-Lazarus, MS, RN, certified professional in health care risk management (CPHRM), and vice president of patient advocacy for Erie County Medical Center (ECMC), in Buffalo, New York. Their presentation, “Catch a Falling Star: Developing and Improving a Patient Fall Safety Program Utilizing Electronic Event Data,” reviewed how ECMC used Quantros solutions to gather, track, and share patient-fall event data as part of their “Catch a Falling Star” patient safety program, achieving a 26-percent reduction in the fall rate throughout the organization.

“The focus on education and shared learning opportunities is a main reason we participate in the NAHQ annual conference year after year,” says Chris Bethell, vice president of marketing for Quantros. “It’s a great opportunity to hear directly from executives and clinicians [who work] at the point of care, and learn how we can help them achieve their patient safety and performance improvement goals.”
