  • Publication number: 20200219611
    Abstract: A method may include identifying a shift associated with a clinician by applying a machine learning model trained to identify, based on a series of transaction records associated with the clinician, one or more shifts associated with the clinician. The clinician may be identified as likely to engage in a hazardous behavior based at least on the shift associated with the clinician. In response to determining that the clinician as likely to engage in the hazardous behavior, activating a protective workflow. The protective workflow may be configured to prevent the clinician from engaging in the hazardous behavior as well as to collect evidence associated with the hazardous behavior. Related methods and articles of manufacture are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20190341142
    Abstract: A peer network may include nodes corresponding to different clinicians. An edge may interconnect the two nodes based on the corresponding clinicians sharing at least one common attribute such as for example, treating the same patients and/or interacting with the same medical devices. A machine-learning model may be applied to identify, in the peer network, one or more peer communities of clinicians. The activity pattern of a clinician may be compared to the activity patterns of other clinicians in the same peer community to determine whether that clinician exhibits anomalous behavior. An investigative workflow may be triggered when the clinician is determined to exhibit anomalous behavior. The investigative workflow may include generating an alert, activating surveillance devices, and/or isolating medication accessed by the clinician.

  • Publication number: 20190244699
    Abstract: A method for detecting diversion may include receiving, from a dispensing cabinet including medication, data associated with a plurality of individuals accessing the dispensing cabinet to retrieve and/or return the medication. Diversion of the medication may be detected by at least applying, to at least a portion of the data received from the dispensing cabinet, a machine learning model trained to detect diversion. An identity of a first individual responsible for the diversion may be determined based on the data received from the dispensing cabinet. In response to the determination of the first individual as being responsible for the diversion, an investigative workflow may be triggered at the dispensing cabinet. Related systems and articles of manufacture, including apparatuses and computer program products, are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20190237177
    Abstract: A reader device is configured to wirelessly read medical information from a medical identification device and location information from a location identification device when the devices are within a range of the at least one reader device. A tracking device receives an indication that first medical information and first location information was read at a first location when a first medical identification device associated with the first medical object and a first location identification device associated with the first location was read at the first location by at least one reader device, and a last-known location of the first medical object associated with the medical identification device is generated based on the first location information read at the first location. In response to receiving a tracking request for a delivery status of a first medical object, the last-known location is provided display responsive to the tracking request.

  • Patent number: 10064579
    Abstract: A system and method of managing therapy provided to patients in an institution. The system monitors all aspects of the medication delivery to a patient, as well as other information related to the patient, such as values of vital signs, laboratory results and patient factors such as history, diagnosis, allergies and the like. The system includes one or more databases of information, including institutionally developed rules, guidelines and protocol representing the best medical practices of the institution. The system provides alerts and/or recommendations based on the application of the rules to the information being monitored, and alerts care givers accordingly, providing for dynamic adjustment of the patient's therapy. The system also monitors the status of the alerts, and if no action is taken in a selected period of time, may escalate the priority of the alert and/or halt the delivery of medication to the patient until the alert is resolved.

  • Publication number: 20140330581
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for creating and implementing multi-disciplinary treatment plans, which can allow healthcare and medical professionals and providers of various disciplines to collaborate in forming a patient treatment plan and subsequently managing patient care in accordance with this plan. Patient information is first received in a patient planning system. A team of multi-disciplinary healthcare or medical professionals and providers meet and collaborate to form a treatment plan which is then entered in the treatment planning system. As the course of treatment progresses, the treatment plan can be updated in the treatment planning system by each of the team members. The graphical user interface seen by the team members will typically be the same for each team member. This interface includes a generalized treatment planning section and a patient-specific section, each of which can be manipulated to add or update a treatment plan for a particular patient.
