BurstIQ is a revolutionary health and medical research platform. This company is one of the few platforms of its kind that focuses on developing customized, personalized treatment plans for its clients.
This ongoing series features various real-life examples from the companies that have recently used the BurstIQ system to further their medical mission.
In part one, we posted an article on Burst IQ and its use in the military. Today, we continue that series with an article on its use by hospice care agencies, or centers that provide in-home care to terminally ill individuals.
While the center has not yet released figures related to how many individuals, they treat using Burst IQ, it is worth looking into just to see how far they are able to push the technology.
They love Providing Quality services
Hospice care agencies have long fought to provide quality palliative care to those nearing the end of their life. The consistent demands for up-to-date, personalized information about a patient’s glucose levels, vital signs, and other information has proved to be too much for some agencies to handle.
Enter the BurstIQ platform and its ability to incorporate secure data security, so that these agencies can have access to the personal health data of their patients and be able to make informed decisions.
Example of their best services
One example of how the use of burstiq allows agencies to focus on what they do best: providing quality care to their patients.
At a recent conference in Ireland, the chief executive of one such agency was able to illustrate how such a system can help the agency to focus on its core responsibilities.
Rather than spending time dealing with the data entry requirements of maintaining a patient database, and the security and access requirements for that database, the chief executive saw his agency’s success in leveraging the BurstIQ technology.
Instead of spending time creating applications for the data entry requirements, the agency was able to focus its attention on the more important aspects of clinical practice: giving patients the care and support they need and ensuring that the data provided is secured by the most secure data exchange platform in existence.
They use a secure data grid
The use of a secure data grid also means that agencies are able to use the burstIQ platform as a model for patient data management.
Rather than having to develop applications from scratch to integrate into the patient database, the Burst IQ platform allows existing software to be leveraged and made available at no extra cost to agencies.
This offers a way for existing software to be used in ways that would have been previously impossible. As such, agencies can leverage the strength of the burstIQ platform to improve their current systems while making improvements to how they give patients care and support.
This isn’t an add-on service
It is important to point out that the burstIQ technology is not an add-on feature – it is not something that agencies simply plug into their existing systems.
Rather, the burstiq platform is designed to work in conjunction with existing systems. In other words, the Burst IQ concept is not something that an agency simply implements once.
Rather, it is designed to make information exchange as streamlined as possible. By doing so, agencies can provide their patients with the highest quality services possible while reducing costs and streamlining operations.
Another key advantage to the Burst IQ concept is that it allows agency staff to focus on their job instead of worrying about the management of data.
This not only helps to reduce operational costs but also helps to increase the efficiency with which the agency operates.
With a focus on providing personalized healthcare service, the focus on efficiency is not just about saving money but also improving productivity. In addition to this, the increase in employee productivity can allow agencies to take on projects they may otherwise not have been able to within the confines of an existing framework.
Is it helpful for healthcare companies?
While the concept of the burstIQ is relatively new to the field of healthcare companies, many in the field have been waiting for its arrival for quite some time.
One of the reasons why agencies were slow to adopt the burstiq platform was because it required additional investment in the form of a private cloud rather than being a stand-alone platform.
However, recent developments in the market have made the platform more affordable and practical for agencies to adopt. The burstIQ cloud allows agencies to host their own applications and data on the cloud rather than having to purchase separate software to use across multiple platforms.
This means that agencies no longer need to make purchasing decisions for software licenses across multiple platforms, a time-consuming exercise. Further, this will help cut down on the amount of time spent configuring and monitoring the various systems across different departments and offices.
One way in which the BurstIQ technology differs from most other healthcare IT solutions available is the way it leverages machine intelligence.
Traditionally, machine intelligence has been used to improve the speed at which information is processed by a system, but the burstIQ platform goes one step further by using machine intelligence to create new products and services from previously unthought-of data.
As such, the platform is able to create new services that are specific to an individual patient. Ultimately, machine intelligence will play a large role in helping agencies improve efficiency and keep up with the pace of the growing healthcare industry. However, companies that are interested in leveraging this cutting-edge technology should consult with healthcare IT providers for the best practices in using this powerful tool.
