AWARE: A clinical decision support
tool designed to reduce risk & errors

Multiple & Single Patient Dashboards for Healthcare Organizations

It has been found that patients are susceptible to over 150 serious medical errors per 1000 patient days while in an ICU. Patients tend to suffer 36 preventable adverse events per 1000 patient days, and these errors account for costs of up to $ 49 billion a year.

Designed to work with multiple EHR systems and bedside monitors to present only relevant information on a single screen dashboard, AWARE can also address information overload issues to reduce these medical errors and improve patient outcomes.

AWARE will offer you:

  • A viewing and clinical decision support tool designed to reduce risk of error
  • Multiple EHR systems and bedside monitors to present only relevant information on a single screen dashboard
  • Lower cost for care, as information overload will be minimized
  • Quick access to patient information at the point of care
  • Help with interventional decision-making

Brandix i3 is a strategic partner for Ambient AWARE

  • Single Patient Dashboard Tool

  • Multi-Patient Dashboard Tool

  • Patient-centered care:
    • Patient data organized by organs and systems
    • Multiple organ system monitoring
    • Task list which is implemented & updated
    • Best practices checklist at the Point of Care

    Promote timely delivery of evidence-based interventions:
    • Smart alerts providing clinicians relevant information for potential patient care needs
    • Task oriented viewers including ICU checklists and timelines

    Performance metrics:
    • Quality improvement metrics
    • Comprehensive reporting
    • Reporting infrastructure for external compliance with quality indicators

  • Enhances communications:
    • Multiple organ systems displayed together
    • Cut down time spent looking for information across different systems
    • Communication dashboard – whiteboard, goals of care, tasks, etc.
    • Effective communication with patient and family members

    Reduces overall care needs:
    • Lower utilization of central lines
    • Fewer unplanned surgeries
    • Fewer radiology tests
    • Fewer transfusions
