Mercy Takes Center Stage at National Health Tech Conference
Thought leaders to present award-winning work
(February 17, 2017)

ST. LOUIS, Feb. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the brightest minds in health care technology convene next week, Mercy will take center stage, and with momentum a culmination of three national technology awards.

Mercy, a recipient of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Nicholas E. Davies Award of Excellence, will be honored at the 2017 Annual HIMSS conference for its use of health technology to improve patient care while achieving cost savings.

As an award recipient and thought leader, Mercy will share case studies and lessons learned with other health care organizations during the following presentations:

  • An overview of its Davies award-winning Clinical Pathways case study demonstrating how Mercy decreased by nearly three hours the time it took to administer a diuretic to patients with heart failure. The clinical process helped Mercy achieve mortality rates that are less than half the national average for heart failure patients.
  • Using data to predict medication usage and provide better quality care for patients.
  • During an invitation-only event, Mercy experts will discuss how it made improvements in clinical documentation ensuring physicians properly code clinical diagnoses to align the appropriate revenue an initiative recognized by the Davies Award. 
  • As an Epic EHR early adopter, Mercy Technology Services, the IT arm of Mercy, will share lessons to help others install and optimize Epic, as well as discuss the benefits of cloud hosting and disaster recovery for all mission-critical health care applications. Mercy is partnering with NetApp for an executive learning event on these topics. 

Heading into the HIMSS conference, Mercy was also named one of the nation's most innovative healthcare organizations by Healthcare Informatics magazine, achieving a second place Healthcare Informatics Innovator Award. Judges touted Mercy's clinical pathways program, and its work in partnership with Ayasdi, which taps into millions of pieces of patient data to find hidden patterns and save more lives.

That achievement comes on the heels of Mercy's inaugural Analytics 50 Award from CIO Magazine. The health system was honored for using surgical procedure data to achieve $9.42 million in cost reductions, eliminate or minimize the use of certain surgical products, reduce variation in surgical protocols, establish best practices across surgical departments and ensure quality post-operative results for patients.

The clinical pathways work and data-driven surgical achievements were also Davies winning case studies.
