AN INNOVATION STUDIO IN HEALTHCARE

 

DESIGN + TECHNOLOGY + MEDICINE

Health data is everywhere.

 

 

 

The 21st century is a revolution in health care information | Electronic health records are everywhere. This has brought great advances in availability, accessibility, and readability of health information.

But there’s a problem. Health care information - specifically in today’s electronic health systems and many other sources - is just too complex and too difficult to use.

The result: information overload makes clinicians’ and patients’ lives harder, not easier.

Some examples:

  • Clinicians spend large parts of their day at the computer, not the bedside

  • Information vital to patient care is buried in EHRs and often goes unrecognized, resulting in:

    • Patient safety problems

    • Duplicative, inefficient, and unsafe care

  • Increasing regulatory, accreditation, and quality measurement programs create burdens for providers and complexity for healthcare organizations.

We help organize it.

 
 

Patient Insight is a female co-owned innovation studio based in Los Angeles, Arlington VA, and Detroit MI. We are team of engineers, data scientists, and designers from the cutting edge of the commercial space plus leaders in medicine, healthcare policy, quality, safety and clinical informatics.

 

BRINGING CLINICAL DATA INTO FOCUS  

 

OUR FOCUS

 
 
  • Working with health care organizations to address data complexity for specific use cases.

  • Leveraging design-thinking and data visualization to address real-world challenges.

  • Making care delivery and other functions – such as regulatory, quality, and accreditation – simpler and easier.

PROJECT 1:
Automated Data Abstraction for Accreditations
(Partnership with American College of Cardiology)
National Institute of Health | SBIR| R43 LM012955-01

Health service accreditation and certification programs are a critical mechanism to direct quality improvements and ensure compliance with regulations. Reporting on requisite accreditation measures currently requires human data abstractors to interpret heterogeneous and disparately presented data elements in an electronic health record (EHR), both structured and unstructured, which is resource intensive for hospitals. Replacement of human elements using evolving automated data abstraction methods and a novel data visualization to improve their workflow would solve an important, unmet need and offer a dramatic improvement on the status quo.

PROJECT 2:
Project DAViD (Data Visualization for Doctors)
National Library of Medicine | SBIR| GRANT12706150

Project DAViD (Data Visualization for Doctors) is a novel platform to unify EHR data across disparate systems and using advanced analytics and natural language processing, to mine and prioritize the most relevant information in a proprietary visual design that that is intuitive to how physicians make diagnostic and treatment decisions.
