University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics Transforms the O.R.
In the United States, roughly one in 20 patients admitted to a hospital develops an infection. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, surgical site infections are the most common, accounting for more than 30 percent of occurrences, and putting patients at risk for illness, prolonged hospitalization, and death. In addition, the cost of hospital-acquired infections is estimated at $10 billion per year.
At the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Dr. John Cromwell, director of gastrointestinal, minimally invasive, and bariatric surgery, believed that predictive analytics could prevent a high percentage of surgical site infections and decrease healthcare costs. He and his team needed a flexible, enterprise-grade, advanced analytics platform that encompassed the entire analytics lifecycle—from data aggregation and preparation, to model development, deployment, and monitoring, and selected TIBCO Statistica™.
Using Statistica, results included a 58 percent reduction in surgical site infections, and, says Cromwell, “Big data and predictive analytics are transforming outcomes at virtually every point in patient care.”
