SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Rothman Healthcare Corporation announced the licensing of the Rothman Index by Yale New Haven Health System in Connecticut. Yale-New Haven Health will use the Rothman Index to help improve patient outcomes and reduce operating costs.
A primary goal of the implementation of the Rothman Index is to help reduce operating costs at the system’s flagship hospital Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH).
Rothman Healthcare developed the Rothman Index to bridge gaps in the continuity of care by allowing caregivers to leverage data found in a hospital’s electronic health record to display, track and visualize the progression of one or more patient’s health simultaneously over time. The Rothman Index generates regularly updated health scores synthesizing routine vital signs, nursing assessments, and lab results, for display in a user-friendly graphical format, summarizing thousands of pages of patient data at a glance making it easier to detect rapid and subtle declines in health earlier. Rapid Response Teams, physicians and nurses now have the ability to intervene earlier through “at-a-glance” summaries of a patient, unit or hospital.
“It’s common sense that healthier patients are less costly to treat. Using the Rothman Index to catch deterioration for earlier intervention will reduce unnecessary harm and suffering while saving health systems millions of dollars,” remarked Rothman Healthcare's CEO Richard Sommer. “We’re excited to rollout our life-saving application at this world renowned medical research facility.”
