CASE STUDY OVERVIEW:
In 2013, the American Heart Association published new guidelines for calculating the risk of heart disease or stroke and recommended that all individuals over the age of 40 to be assessed on a regular basis. However, adoption of this new guideline is sporadic throughout the industry because modifying existing practitioner workflows to incorporate a new process is a challenge.
Our client, a subsidiary of Fortune 100 healthcare group, found that only a fraction of patients had Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) inputted with the recommended atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) risk factor. Calculating the risk factor required a series of onerous, manual steps. The algorithm was complicated. Therefore, doctors needed to find an external website that provided a ASCVD risk calculator, copy/paste in several data points from the patient’s record, and then enter the final result back into the patient’s EMR.
