NASHVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 1, 2021 — Continuum Care Hospice and Affinity Care Hospice, a New York based hospice and palliative care provider operating in seven states, has successfully implemented Medalogix Muse, a machine learning and predictive modeling tool to meet the needs of their patients.
The Muse technology evaluates and models every clinical assessment, medication, vital sign, and other relevant data to perform a risk stratification of all hospice patients. The tool then highlights the patients with the most critical needs and visually alerts the agency to perform additional care. Continuum/Affinity is then able to make accurate changes to care plans based on the condition and location of the patient (LTC, SNF or in home).
According to the CEO of Continuum/Affinity, Samuel Stern, the agency needed a tool to increase care at the end-of-life. “We looked for a solution that could maximize care. Prior to Muse, clinicians had to figure out when a patient was going to transition,” said Stern.
Due to Medalogix Muse’s technology, the team at Continuum/Affinity uses the product to help reaffirm and direct their decision-making as clinicians. “Muse monitors the EMR in a way that people can’t, and it utilizes data in the system earlier to determine when a patient is transitioning than we would have been able to,” said Stern.
“We are proud to partner with Continuum/Affinity and support their teams in ensuring each patient receives the care they need at the end-of-life,” says Elliott Wood, President and CEO of Medalogix. “We look forward to supporting their dedication to treating each person as an individual with unique needs and goals, which is exactly what Medalogix Muse is designed to help agencies accomplish.”
