Introducing EDie: Emergency Department Information Exchange
The FHA, in collaboration with the FCEP, are implementing a membership-wide quality initiative aimed at positively impacting the opioid epidemic, reducing readmissions, and improved ED utilization by complex patients. To support this quality initiative, we have partnered with Collective Medical, the producers of the care collaboration network and application called EDie.
EDie uses real-time analytics and its network of hospitals to proactively identify high-risk, complex patients in the ED and alert the ED provider with valuable patient insight, context and encounter history. When integrated with state Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMP), EDie will search for high-risk patterns in the patient’s fill history and include this data in its notification to ED providers. We encourage our members to learn more about EDie and talk with their hospital about implementing this system. Feel free to view
for a list of FHA-member hospitals and more information.
