Island Medical Management (IMM) has chosen Prista Corporation’s ActionCue Clinical Intelligence application for use in all of Island Medical facilities nationwide to integrate and standardize their risk, quality and performance improvement programs.
IMM is a regional staffing and management organization, in both Ohio and New York. In 2012 it acquired 4M Management Systems. In 2013 it merged with Pegasus Emergency Group, providing emergency department leadership, staffing, coding and billing services — expanding to over 40 client hospitals across nine states, and providing care to nearly one million patients.
Managing clinical performance data across 44 facilities was a problem that Beth Wiley, IMM’s director of clinical operations, was tasked with solving.
“We have hospitals throughout the US and we have to know what is going on in them,” said Wiley. “It’s critical for me and my staff to not just get data in, but to get insight out. There are many sophisticated applications to choose from, but I was looking for a solution that integrated all of our performance improvement functions, and was extremely user-friendly.”
Prista Corporation, an Austin, Texas based healthcare software company, has developed a novel approach to filling this need.
“We understood a particular problem in healthcare that was not being addressed at all, and that’s really applying technology properly to the information needs of healthcare professionals,” said Prista’s co-founder and president Don Jarrell, “We’ve integrated multiple functions, risk and quality management with performance improvement to really save time for people in related work. Instead of presenting just data, the ActionCue software provides insight that is critical for improving patient care and organization performance.”
