NASHVILLE, TENN. – MAY 19, 2020 – EvidenceCare, a leading provider of advanced clinical decision support technology, announced today the addition of the company’s free COVID-19 clinical decision support solution to the Epic App Orchard, making it available to hospital systems nationwide.
The platform, available since early April, has been accessed by thousands of clinicians in hospital systems, emergency rooms, urgent care settings, and telehealth interactions to support triage, diagnose and treatment of the coronavirus. Direct integration into provider workflows makes the COVID-19 evidence easier to access.
The EvidenceCare collaborative has also developed additional pathways relevant to hospital critical care settings. Those additional pathways made live today and distributed through the platform include; ICU General Care, Respiratory and ARDS Management, Hemodynamic Management, ICU Complications, and Airway Management. In aggregate these pathways offer interactive decision support for isolation standards, airway procedures and support, fluid therapy, imaging and laboratory studies, pharmacologic management, respiratory and cardiac complications as well as shock and ECMO considerations.
“The App Orchard made it easier and quicker to release the COVID-19 collaborative solution to providers,” stated Dr. Brian Fengler, chief executive officer and co-founder of EvidenceCare. “Making these pathways available to as many clinicians as possible was our vision from the beginning. And integrating them directly into workflow is the best way to provide the support that caregivers on the front lines need.”
The EvidenceCare solution was also recognized in a newly released March 2020 Insights Report, released by KLAS called, “COVID-19 Technology and Services Solutions Guide” as a clinical decision support & surveillance solution.
“We are honored that KLAS has recognized the work that we are doing,” commented Jim Jamieson, president and co-founder of EvidenceCare. “Their guide creates awareness for technology critical to support clinicians during this challenging time.”
The protocols are available for all healthcare professionals here for the foreseeable future. For more COVID-19 resources from EvidenceCare, visit evidence.care/covid-19-resources.
