Real-Time COVID-19 Alerting for Infection Preventionists
Hospitals are seeking ways to efficiently monitor patients who have been tested for COVID-19 and minimize risk of transmission by identifying the best use of isolation precautions, personal protective equipment and other considerations. To address this need, Wolters Kluwer developed a set of new infection prevention rules for hospitals using Sentri7 that provides real-time alerts when a patient’s COVID-19-related lab test results are flagged in, or transmitted to, the EHR. The rule can be implemented in minutes, through the SoleSource® platform, to aid in monitoring coronavirus testing throughout a health system. Click here to continue>>
