Cardinal Health and the Texas Hospital Association (THA) announced today that hospitals across Texas have a new way to safeguard patients and combat deadly health care associated infections (HAIs).
The Texas Hospital Association and its marketing subsidiary, HealthShare, recently endorsed MedMined services from Cardinal Health as an effective tool to help combat HAIs, improve patient care and dramatically reduce infection-related costs.
MedMinedâ„¢ services offer infection surveillance for the entire hospital that alerts clinicians to early signs of an emerging infection issue to target improvement efforts at the right place and the right time. Using data mining tools similar to those used by credit card companies to monitor unauthorized purchases, this patented technology automatically identifies patterns indicative of specific and correctable quality breakdowns to prevent and treat HAIs successfully.
