Co-Winner: PointClickCare

Improving the Care of Patient Populations

Infection control difficulties were present in patient care organizations long before the COVID-19 pandemic surfaced, and have continued since then. The leaders of PointClickCare in April 2020 launched their Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) solution to help Infection Preventionists and care teams perform ongoing resident surveillance, allowing identification and reporting of infections in real time in one centralized location. This helped to effectively understand and bring awareness to infections, as care teams need an efficient way to review and access centralized case information and facilitate transparency in reporting of infection information across their facilities and communities. Their IPC solution enables access to a central repository of infection cases to improve patient care management, and management and documentation of infection cases from that point forward.

Co-Winner: Accumen

MyBloodHealth® - Leveraging Technology to Revolutionize Anemia Management

At least one third of patients in every hospital or health system have this common and modifiable condition that negatively affects their quality of life and work productivity, and that condition is anemia. Despite how common it is, it is not normal. And, unfortunately, too many patients with undiagnosed anemia undergo elective surgery, and wind-up receiving blood transfusions. Accumen’s patented MyBloodHealth® system-wide anemia management platform helps hospitals and health systems to manage anemia in a simple, efficient, and cost-effective manner. Hospitals no longer need to rely on manual processes and multiple data sources to meet the needs of their patients. Even with the current workforce shortage, staff can do more with less and not worry about sacrificing patient care.

Runner-Up: Nuance

Enhancing the Patient-Physician Relationship

With a growing physician shortage, increasing burnout, and declining patient satisfaction, a dramatic change is needed to make healthcare more efficient and effective, and bring back the joy of practicing medicine. AI-driven ambient clinical intelligence (ACI) promises to help by revolutionizing patient and provider experiences with clinical documentation that writes itself. Most importantly, ACI can free physicians from the shackles of clerical duties and bring back the joy of practicing medicine. ACI technology ensures the primary focus of each visit is the patient and their story, not notetaking or documentation. That strengthens the patient-physician relationship and increases patient satisfaction, engagement, and retention. It brings providers back to what attracted them to medicine in the first place.
