Penn Medicine IT platform wins ECRI Institute award

Philadelphia-based Penn Medicine Center for Health Care Innovation received ECRI Institute's 11th Health Devices Achievement Award.

The award — which recognizes innovative efforts to improve patient safety or reduce costs, among other care goals — went to the center's clinical alert platform. The platform, which pulls information from EHRs and other data sources, enables developers to create custom apps to help clinicians manage and identify specific patient populations. This information is processed and communicated to providers through a secure text, email message or online dashboard.

On the platform, the Center for Health Care Innovation team has developed an app that alerts providers when a patient's medication order is about to expire and an app that provides patients who frequently visit the emergency department with targeted healthcare services.
