Congestive Heart Failure

This solution enables the business and clinicians to access appropriate information at appropriate times resulting in reductions in CHF mortality, length of stay, and administration improvements to timely measurements and follow-up appointments.

  • Care path optimization

  • Best practice alert management

  • Complication avoidance and management

  • Time to Diuertic and BNP are key metrics

  • Echos, Urine analysis etc. helps reducing cost

  • Daily weight management in an acute setting helps manage the disease better

  • Follow-up before discharge within 7 days helps lowering readmissions

Adult Sepsis

Our Sepsis solution helps you improve compliance with SEP-1. We provide practical recommendations to streamline workflows, improve satisfaction and increase data capture. Using your existing IT tools, we also build a powerful, easy-to-use dashboard that provide patient-level detail for performance improvement.

  • Identifying close outliers from the 3-hour and 6-hour bundles

  • Protocols improvement and “What” they are missing

  • Slow on fluid

  • Overall antibiotic duration tracking and management

Pediatric Sepsis

This solution tracks the times at which medical interventions are performed. This data will help to identify potential barriers and trends in treatment plans once Sepsis protocol begins. The improvement of Sepsis protocol workflows impacts notable hospital KPI’s such as length of stay, readmissions, and mortality rates.

  • Applicable for all participants in Improving Pediatric Sepsis Outcomes (IPSO) Collaborative

  • Implemented for and automated for a Collaborative Member based on guidelines

  • Data specifications were iteratively worked with CHA through prior implementation

  • Complex implementation shortened based on prior experience with CHA Sepsis Collaborative member’s specifications

Ambulatory Quality

Our Ambulatory Quality solution focuses on two main areas of Ambulatory quality. Population management (preventative care management) and chronic disease management are the focal point of Fusion’s Ambulatory Care analytic solutions.

  • Gaps in Population Health metrics. Identifying patients who need outreach or resolution of care gaps

  • Pre-built metric definitions with data points needed to help improve speed to deliver reporting

  • Population Health Management metrics (for ACO and Clinically Integrated Networks also)

  • Pay for Performance

  • HEDIS metrics

  • PQRS

  • Medicare STAR reporting

  • Care Management

  • Evaluate and reduce health risks

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Exacerbation of COPD including worsening emphysema and chronic bronchitis (two main types of COPD) can be costly and have grave outcomes for patients. Our solution helps support clinicians to manage COPD patient populations by providing analytics around preventative care and treatment of COPD.

  • Cost Management based on lab orders

  • Combined reporting of Acute and Ambulatory to manage the COPD

  • Clinical Analytics not constrained by Service lines or Departments for better Population and Disease Management

Readmissions Reduction

Clinicians will be able to study causes and most frequent reasons for readmissions as well as analyze readmissions by service, treatment, DRG and diagnosis. CMS exclusions and non-CMS custom exclusions can be applied. This solution works across all service lines and the health system for consolidated analytics.

  • Evaluate your organization’s reasons for readmissions

  • Provides clinicians and healthcare leadership with analytical tools and reports to substantiate or change processes and workflows

  • Ability to analyze readmissions by service, treatment, DRG, disposition and diagnosis

  • Ability to easily drill down into details within the dashboards

  • Evaluate readmissions at 7, 30, and 90 days


Our comprehensive Stroke solution provides required Joint Commission measures that are aimed at how well an organization provides care to stroke patients. These measures are necessary to become a level 1 certified Stroke center.

  • Evidence based process and quality measures to manage Stroke encounters.

  • Provides retrospective analytics that help improve decision support tools, workflows, Stroke order sets, and clinical pathways.

  • All measures necessary to achieve Stroke center certification from the Joint Commission.

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS)

Despite improvements in surgical techniques, anesthesia, and other medical improvements, Intra and Post-operative care for Colorectal Surgical patients always provide opportunities for advancement. Clinical evidence based practice indicates that proper ERAS protocols improve post-surgical outcomes.

  • Reduce median length of stay

  • Occurrence of infections

  • Readmission rates reduction

  • Improvement on following clinical pathways intra-operative and post-operatively for Colorectal surgery patients.

  • Monitoring intra-operative and post-operative care for Colorectal surgery patients including clinical guidelines for fluid volume management, appropriate use of opioids for pain management, antibiotic administration, dietary enhancement, and early patient mobilization.

Pediatric Respiratory

Analysis of bronchodilator and steroid ordering, drug administration and medication management for patients with a diagnosis of asthma, bronchiolitis and pneumonia. In addition to these primary medications, the solution also provides analytics on antibiotic management for patients categorized with a pneumonia diagnosis.

  • Assessment of turnaround times for bronchodilator, steroid and antibiotic administration

  • Provides Pediatric clinicians and healthcare leadership with analytical tools and reports to substantiate or change processes and workflows

  • Customized visualizations designed to provide an efficient overview of the clinical data and monitor patient outcomes over time.

  • Lab orders optimization to ensure larger than needed panels are not ordered

Congenital Heart Disease

Effectively managing cardiology patient population for interventional surgery improves care, identifies and realizes opportunities for increased revenue and margins.

  • On an average identifying even 4 possible patients from the population helps pay for a provider cost for increased revenue identification and opportunities

  • Average $19k margin per intervention for one patient qualified

  • Algorithm has helped 93% accuracy in identifying the pediatric cardiologists and 78% accuracy in identifying diagnostics and status

  • On review, 35% identified cohorts have missed follow-ups
