Quantros Case Study: Real-Time Access to Near-Miss Data Helps CA Children’s Hospital Improve Nationally Recognized Patient

Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford Leverages Quantros SRM™ Solution to Achieve Demonstrable Care Environment Improvements

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital (LPCH), located at Stanford University Medical Center in Stanford, CA, has won national recognition for its patient safety program. But hospital leaders knew they could improve their care environment even further if they found a faster way to identify and address patient care problems.

Earlier this year, LPCH implemented the Safety and Risk Management (SRM) solution from Quantros, a leading provider of clinically-focused data management and decision support solutions for the healthcare industry. Quantros SRM™ is a comprehensive electronic event self-reporting, event tracking, monitoring and workflow management solution. SRM gathers data so healthcare organizations can identify safety issues and track intervention performance in real time.

“Quantros SRM gives us a gold mine of information we don’t get anywhere else,” said Sandra Trotter, Patient Safety Program Director for LPCH.

Trotter said the near-miss data provided by SRM has proven particularly valuable. LPCH has seen several instances in which SRM has helped identify potentially serious patient safety issues much earlier than if the hospital had not had the Quantros solution.

“By providing near-miss information directly from front-line staff in real time, the SRM system allows us to identify trends very quickly,” Trotter explained. “We’ve had nothing beyond a stage 2 ulcer since we installed the Quantros solution. Fines related to pressure ulcers can cost up to $100,000 in California, so this is a big savings.“

A new case study from Quantros offers more details on how Quantros SRM has helped Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital deliver improved patient safety. The case study is available for download at: http://quantros.com/pdf/Lucile_Packard-SRM_Case_Study.pdf
