Andor Health | November 07, 2023
Emory Healthcare has collaborated with Andor Health to mitigate the risks of patient falls and address other safety concerns within the hospital setting while implementing virtual patient observer technology within its healthcare facilities.
Andor Health, the creator of ThinkAndor, will employ generative AI technology to access data from various systems, including ambient listening and real-time visualization, to identify common safety risks such as falls and self-harm. In addition, Emory Healthcare will commence a pilot program for the virtual sitter technology in November at two of its hospitals. This program will involve the remote monitoring of at-risk patients on medical and surgical floors, as well as in the emergency departments.

ClosedLoop | September 20, 2023
ClosedLoop, a prominent healthcare data science platform, has formally introduced two novel data science solutions.
These solutions, namely, ACO-Predict and Evaluate, are crafted to assist healthcare organizations in the comprehensive analysis, assessment, ongoing surveillance, and enhancement of their programs, with the objectives of minimizing adverse events, enhancing health outcomes, and curtailing expenditures.
ClosedLoop's offering, ACO-Predict, marks the healthcare sector's inaugural no-cost AI-powered solution for population health risk stratification. It harnesses the same algorithms that propelled ClosedLoop to garner fame in the 2021 CMS AI Challenge and earned the Best in KLAS Healthcare AI ranking for 2022 and 2023. When integrated with the updated Beneficiary Claims Data API data feeds from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the product furnishes Medicare Accountable Care Organizations with a turnkey risk stratification tool for Complex Care Management programs, all free of charge.
Meanwhile, the company's second product, ClosedLoop Evaluate, is a SaaS solution designed to evaluate and continuously monitor the efficacy of intricate population health initiatives over extended durations. Quantifying the impact and ROI of Population Health programs has presented significant challenges. Organizations often need to resort to imprecise pre- and post-assessments or enlist costly consulting firms for one-off outcome research studies to understand the actual effects of their programs.
ClosedLoop’s solutions aim to improve healthcare organizations' outcomes and offer essential patient support.
Jennifer Zbell, VP of Clinical Analytics at Healthfirst, stated,
ClosedLoop provided the quantitative evidence we needed to increase investment in successful programs." She added, "Evaluate gives us the confidence to examine our programs across the board so we can better see what's working, when it's working, and who it's working for.
