Indicator Reporting and Benchmarking

Edgebox has developed a comprehensive collection of services to provide a platform for indicator collection, reporting and comparison.

Clinical Quality and Research Registries

The Edgebox platform supports Clinical Registries Research Databases with flexible data collection tools and automatic collation of data for research reports, presentations and publications. The platform is highly secure with enterprise class reliability and management features delivered through a cloud based platform as a service model.

Mortality & Readmission Management

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Healthcare has defined a set of national indicators of mortality and the emerging NHPA (National Health Performance Authority) is creating an environment of increasing accountability and transparency for the publication of hospital performance and related mortality. These environmental pressures are creating increasing demand for solutions that enable healthcare facilities to first monitor and report performance but importantly to be able to create practical and sustained improvements.

Medication Assessment

Medication management issues are a common and costly occurrence in healthcare today and are one of the main causes of adverse events in hospitals leading to disability and death in up to 6.5% of hospital admissions. Up to 50% of all errors in prescribing and dosing are caused by missing actions that are considered to be highly preventable.

Anticoagulation Management System

Anticoagulation medications are a commonly used treatment in acute and community care settings to thin the blood but they have many risks and can be complex to monitor and manage with significant potential to cause harm and even death. They have a narrow safe range and are in the top 5 drugs that cause harm and even death costing up to A$85m every year in Australia.

Case Review & IHI Trigger Tools

The "trigger tool" methodology, developed by the Institute of Healthcare Improvement (IHI) describes a way to greatly enhance the chart or case-note review process by rapidly identifying events that may suggest the presence of an adverse event or omission of care.

Deteriorating Patients

Track information on cases where medical emergency team (MET) or rapid response team (RRT) calls occur to see ways to improve performance and prevent harm.

Infection Control

Measure a wide range of infections and key information to make outcomes visible and assist quality improvement. 

Surgical Antibiotic Prophylaxis Module

This module tracks details of surgical cases and include reporting of metrics for antibiotic choice, timing and duration.

 

Falls Management

Falls are the second most common adverse event within health care institutions following medication errors, with inpatient fall rates ranging from 5.09 to 6.64 per 1,000 patient days across the nation. Older adults face a particularly high risk, with one-third of those age 65 and older experiencing a fall each year.

Pressure Ulcer Management

Pressure ulcers often occur during or after admission to a healthcare facility with those at greatest risk being the frail, elderly neurologically impaired. In a state-wide survey carried out in 2008, 9% (272) of patients in WA hospitals had hospital-acquired pressure ulcers.
