Real World Case 2
Duke University Health System, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Others: Medical IT Is Getting Personal

Summary of Case Study
This case study reviews how healthcare IT is being used to personalize medical care in ways that help doctors make smarter decisions about patients' conditions and tailor treatment to the patients' needs.

Personalized medicine often suggests extensive research and complicated analysis of a single patient’s genetic make up and fine tuning medicine.

Clinical tools to assist doctors in picking best tests for suspected diagnoses.

Analytic and decision support tools to help tailor treatments to individual patient's needs.

Researchers use data mining to identify best clinical trial candidates.
Benefits of IT in Healthcare
Duke University Health System
Beth Israel Deaconness Medical Center
Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center consistently ranks in the top three recipients of biomedical research funding from the National Institutes of Health.
Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center runs more than 850 active projects and 200 clinical trails.
BIDMC supports a staff of about 1,600, including affiliated physician.s
Harvard affiliate.
At Beth Israel, clinical support software is being used to help doctors make better treatment and arrive at more accurate diagnoses.
When ordering CT scans, MRIs and other radiology test doctors enter the patient's electronic medical records into the Anvita Health Decision support system. The software analyzes the which tests would be best to treat the patient.
Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center has implemented a complex IT systems that allows staff to easily access a patient’s record
The system analyzes data to aid doctors and help them make better treatment decisions
BIDMC can provide personalized treatments to every patient according to the stored data
IT systems can detect details that may be missed by doctors.

Alexander Thomson
The Duke University Health System operates 3 hospitals and about 100 clinics.
Treats over 1 million patients a year.
Duke University Health System uses data from patients' electronic medical records with analytical tools to personalize treatment for patients.
To prioritize H1N1 vaccines Duke sifted through 20 million electronic medical records, using the IBM Cognos software, to correctly identify those patients that were vulnerable to contract the swine flu.
Duke University Health System has implemented IT systems to provide more efficient and personalized care to every patient.
IT systems make collecting and accessing data much faster and easier
IT systems also allow the system to interactively share data
Decision support tools, remote monitoring tools, and software help doctors and researchers provide the best treatments.
Improves quality and convenience of patient care.
Improves accuracy of diagnoses and health outcomes.
Increases practice efficiencies and cost savings.
The ability to ultimately increase the number of patients served per day for enhanced patient workflow and increased productivity.
Improved results management and patient care with a reduction in errors within your medical practice.
An improved bottom line of the healthcare practice, enhanced through the ability to more accurately and efficiently process patient billing
Insurance Companies
Improved and more accurate reimbursement.
Minimized claim denials and lost charges related to procedures performed without Advance Beneficiary Notice.
Accurate billing and reduction in lost charges for both hospitals and doctors.
Helps Identify patients who are due for preventive visits and screenings
Monitors how patients measure up to certain parameters, such as vaccinations and other treatments.
Improves overall quality of care by having the patient be more involved in their care.
IT Helping Others:
By analyzing thousands of genome data, Quest Diagnostic and Vermillion have developed tests that help diagnose the likely hood of ovarian cancer in women.
Cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid, share data and data results by using data mining and software to identify patients to participate in experimental cancer treatment trials.
Pros :

Information is easily collected and shared.
.Decision support systems aid doctors in making better treatment decisions.
A patient’s record is readily available and viewed by authorized staff.
IT systems provide for fast information, eliminating human delays.


Software failure.
Information System can be hacked and accessed by unauthorized persons.
Implementing an IT System requires additional training.
IT Systems may be significantly more costly than traditional systems.
Confidentiality and privacy issues.

Privacy in Healthcare IT systems
Access controls such as passwords or PIN numbers that limit access to your information to authorized individuals.
Encryption of your information.
Audit trails, which record who accessed your information, what changes were made, and when they were made, provide an additional layer of security.
IT Systems provide for data analytics, data-mining, data-collection, decision-support, and interactive sharing. For these reasons, the use of IT Systems is growing tremendously.
The growth of IT Systems is apparent across all fields, especially in the medical environment.
Hospitals, clinics, physicians, staff members, and clients alike benefit greatly from IT Systems.
IT helps capture and disseminate to doctors perspective and research findings that are impossible for even the most diligent physicians to keep up with.
IT Systems have made it possible for many institutions to implement a more personalized approach to medical services.
