Talking the Healthcare Triple Aim On the Relentless Health Value Podcast
I am thrilled to announce that MedAware has been included in this week’s Relentless Health Value podcast. The series highlights healthcare entrepreneurs and executives who are pursuing the Triple Aim of optimizing population health and improving the patient experience, while controlling costs. The interviews seek to amplify the innovative work of forward-thinking healthcare leaders to inspire others in the industry.
During the conversation, I had an opportunity to speak with Stacey Richter, president and CEO of Aventria Health Group, to discuss how our advanced machine learning algorithms leverage big data and artificial intelligence to analyze millions of EMRs to transform patient data into actionable clinical insights in order to prevent harmful prescription-related medication errors.
According to the NEHI, in the U.S. alone, among the four billion prescriptions filled every year, it is estimated that over seven million are incorrect, resulting in thousands of deaths, over one million injuries, and nearly $21B in preventable healthcare costs. With the very real and present danger of Rx errors, the need for medication surveillance software that can flag in real time potentially life-threatening prescription errors is more important than ever. Our algorithm rich solution was purpose-built with one goal in mind–saving lives. Today we are honored to see MedAware’s technology being used in hospitals every day to eradicate potentially catastrophic prescription-related medication errors and elevate patient safety.
