Relevant information can be used to have a better organizing capacity in hospitals in order to provide faster, more efficient and more comprehensive targeted treatment, and to utilize the effectiveness of treatment nationwide and internationally.
The research has shown critical time saving
“Recent research shows that as much as 97 % of the data collected annually in healthcare is still unused,” says Lisse-Lotte Hermansson, Chief Scientific Officer of BCB Medical, and adds that “The utilization of information should be real-time and save the clinician’s daily work time significantly. Correspondingly, using the digital tools we have developed, such as the MyHealth service, saves time in the doctor’s office, speeds up the discovery of critical information, and eliminates the need for duplicate entries.”
BCB Medical is the leading company in the Nordic countries which focuses on collecting, centralizing and analyzing medical data with a clear mission: get up-to-date information to life and help the healthcare providers take advantage of the ever-increasing amounts of information for the benefit of patients.
“We illustrate large volumes of data in a format that is easier to understand and to use. We already have 1.4 million treatment events in lifelong monitoring.” says Petteri Viljanen, the company’s founder and CEO, and adds “We have developed disease specific treatment monitoring systems that are easily integrated with patient information and other systems, and are in use in all Finnish hospital districts, where they have been launched in 352 clinics. Disease specific monitoring systems already cover the monitoring of 110 diseases and have been used as sources for hundreds of scientific studies and publications.”
Developing operations through peer review
Peer review between hospitals can be done based on the data collected by the disease specific monitoring systems. The aim is to measure the quality and effectiveness of different forms of treatment and to give those that are working in the clinical practice the opportunity to compare the medical quality parameters of their own specialty in order to develop operations. The medical specialist associations play a key role in selecting the disease specific indicators.
“The goal is that reliable, clinical information is smoothly available to professionals and that the overall picture is easy to understand through the visualization of information “, says Lasse Lehtonen, Chairman of the Clinical Quality Registers Steering Group, HUS’s Director of Diagnostics.
