  • Eskenazi UDI Capture Case Study

    January 12, 2018 | Content Areas: Strategic Planning | Tags: Data Standards, Regulatory, UDI | Formats: Case Study

    When the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for Health Information Technology issued a final rule that required the integration of UDIs into electronic health records (EHRs) for compliance with Meaningful Use 3 requirements, the Eskenazi Health team quickly started a project to determine how they could leverage their existing data standards work to meet the ONC’s deadlines.

    In 2015, during implementation of their Epic EHR system, the team decided its ERP supply database would be the sole source of truth for product related information, including UDIs, units of measure (UOM), and pricing. At that point, they began developing the required infrastructure to use barcode scanning to capture product UDIs at the point of use in minimally invasive procedural (MIPS) areas.

  • FMOLHS UDI Capture Case Study: Automation of Product Data Capture in the Electronic Health Record

    January 12, 2018 | Content Areas: Strategic Planning | Tags: Data Standards, Regulatory, UDI | Formats: Case Study

    Read how FMOLHS has been working to leverage UDI barcodes and system integration for the automation of product data capture in the electronic health record (EHR). Through this work, they hope to increase the accuracy and completeness of product data in patients’ medical records, and improve workflow efficiency so that clinicians can spend less time on product documentation and more time on patient care.

    Read how Baptist Health, an Arkansas-based, locally owned and managed, not-for-profit, and faith-based healthcare organization, worked on the project intended to integrate supply chain information across all systems into one point of entry, interface data to all systems that use that data, and then define the fields and the processes that use that data.

  • University Health Network UDI Capture Work Group Case Study

    April 11, 2017 | Content Areas: Strategic Planning | Tags: Data Standards, Regulatory, UDI | Formats: Case Study

    University Health Network (UHN), in Toronto, Canada, initiated a supply chain technology transformation project throughout its 40 operating rooms and two sites with a goal to achieve clinical time efficiencies, patient safety and surgeon cost data for improved decision making and savings. The system provides surgeons with their real-time procedure cost data for all surgical supplies used per patient, per procedure. This real time data captures the
    intraoperative supplies, as well as the pick and returns from the sterile processing department (SPD), which is used to update procedure cards.

  • University of Tennessee Medical Center UDI Capture Work Group Case Study

    April 11, 2017 | Content Areas: Strategic Planning | Tags: Data Standards, Regulatory, UDI | Formats: Case Study

    UTMC partnered with DeRoyal, one of its medical-surgical product suppliers, on an initiative to develop the “perfect physician preference card.” Utilizing the Orthopaedic OR’s, they developed a “smart trash can” featuring software that reads radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags on product packaging as it is disposed of into the Safe, captures the information on the tag and transmits it to UTMC’s OR software system, which serves as the hospital’s patient medical record, and helps determine supply charges generated for each surgical case.

  • FMOL Health System UDI Capture Work Group Case Study

    March 15, 2017 | Content Areas: Strategic Planning | Tags: Data Standards, Regulatory, UDI | Formats: Case Study

    The Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System (FMOLHS) is a pioneer in healthcare data standards implementation, having started its implementation journey seven years ago. The health system’s first work with standards was a pilot program with seven suppliers to use GS1 Global Location Numbers (GLNs) and GS1 Global Trade Item Numbers (GTINs) in electronic data transactions (EDI) to improve the efficiency and accuracy of the procure-to-pay process. Based on these pilots, FMOLHS developed a data standards implementation plan, which is a step-by-step instructional guide to implementing these data standards. Read the case study to learn about the latest FMOLHS' initiative, which is implementing UDIs and electronic product data capture via barcode scanning.
