Mobile Stroke Unit Significantly Trims Time to Imaging and Treatment, Study Shows

A telemedicine-enabled stroke ambulance equipped with a CT scanner enables delivery of thrombolysis 38.5 minutes sooner than does a traditional model of stroke care delivery. That’s a key takeaway from a study of Cleveland Clinic’s early experience with its mobile stroke treatment unit (MSTU) published online by Neurology on March 8, 2017.

Off-Site Cardiac Telemetry Monitoring Honored for Care Delivery Innovation

Fewer than one in four patients survives an in-hospital cardiac arrest, according to statistics from the American Heart Association. Thanks to an off-site central monitoring unit (CMU) providing 24/7 cardiac telemetry monitoring for non-critically ill patients (detailed here), Cleveland Clinic has achieved a remarkable 93 percent survival rate among patients with in-hospital cardiac arrest when the CMU provided direct notification to on-site emergency response teams.

Transforming your Orthopaedic Practice: A Case Study

In a recent Consult QD post, Drs. Molloy, Murray and Rueda broke down how bundled payments began at Cleveland Clinic for orthopaedic surgery, how it increased quality measures and ultimately saved the enterprise millions of dollars. Value-based and bundled payment options were also a topic during the 2016 Medical Innovation Summit.

Top 10 Update: Liquid Biopsy

Liquid biopsies, which ranked #4 in our Top 10 Medical Innovations of 2017,  identifies the presence of cancer by seeking signs of cell-free circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) that is shed from a tumor into the bloodstream. The promise of these simple tests to one day replace the biopsy as the standard of care continues to gain steam.

Catching FHIR: The Latest in the Interoperability Revolution

In honor of HIMSS’s Annual Conference last month, we thought it would be important to shine the light back onto Fast Healthcare Interoperability resources, also known as FHIR. Called healthcare's greatest hope for achieving interoperability once and for all, FHIR was a big part of the 2016 Medical Innovation Summit, due both to its listing in the Top 10 Medical Innovations of 2017, as well as its popular Impact Session panel.
