Charleston, SC — August 4, 2020 — Verge Health, which offers the only governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) platform purpose-built for healthcare, announced today the launch of the first fully-embedded Business Intelligence (BI) and analytics platform giving healthcare providers groundbreaking access to tools and information for driving high reliability. Insights includes AI-based tools to analyze data and present actionable views of risk and quality across the enterprise, enabling users to quickly track safety initiatives, compliance, and provider performance. This is a significant step in achieving zero harm.
“The healthcare industry is tired of being ‘data rich and information poor.’ Quick access to insightful information is paramount, especially as the market shifts to evolving payment models, changing regulations, and managing patient and employee safety throughout the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Connie Moser, chief executive officer of Verge Health. “Insights provides a new approach to risk and quality management and bolsters our core mission to help clients protect patients and margins. We continue to break down organizational silos and provide crucial visibility for organizations to progress in their high reliability journey.”
Verge knows that compliance and provider performance have an implicit connection to safety. Insights leverages all Converge Platform® data impacting safety to drive a proactive approach. Verge will offer Insights to all clients starting August 4, 2020, which will create a paradigm shift in the way clients glean information and drive action from the Converge Platform®. Organizations can now access a system-level view of compliance, including the ability to view findings via The Joint Commission’s SAFER Matrix or a Daily Safety Huddle dashboard that elevates safety events for easy review by departments, organizations, or health systems.
“Insights generates quality, safety and overall risk management from the front-line to the leadership team,” said Sharon Schneller, chief nursing officer at Olmsted Medical Center in Minnesota. “From my years as a Chief Nursing Officer, I know access to real-time safety information is key for front-line nurses to quickly communicate and react to issues. At the executive level, Insights will guide leaders where to focus and provide understanding around audits, education needs, and quality issues. The information provided by Insights will truly drive high reliability within a health system and positively impact every patient.”
