Axial Exchange Outlines Technology's 8-Step Role in Reducing Readmissions at Health IT Event
RALEIGH, N.C. --(Business Wire)--
Exchange, Inc. announced that its CEO Joanne Rohde will present new
insights on how technology can be used to optimize initiatives to reduce
hospital readmissions - and the implications of this for CMIOs and
health care executives as part of this week's Healthcare Information and
Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Texas 2012 conference in Galveston TX.
Rohde will present to health care executives and practitioners, many of
whom are struggling to meet the rising bar for health quality.
Presenting new research and insights alongside Rohde will be
representatives from the University of Texas Health Science Center at
Houston and healthcare analytics firm Clinfometrics of Boston. Rohde
will demonstrate how technology can be used to accelerate the results
from implementations of Project
RED from Boston University and Project
BOOST from the Society of Hospital Medicine.
Citing the work of major Southeast medical institutions such as WakeMed
and others, Rohde will highlight eight key ways that health IT teams can
put data they already own to use in enabling a better discharge process
- from expediting transmissions of discharge charts, educating patients,
confirming medicatios and organizing post-discharge services, among

About Axial Exchange, Inc.
Exchange, Inc. supports our national journey from fee-based to
performance-based healthcare. Our products enable continuity of care
across disparate settings. When a patient transitions between ambulance
to hospital, or hospital to other care settings, information gaps can
drive up avoidable readmission rates and patient safety issues. Axial enables
information to flow to a patient's next care setting so that
providers have what they need, when they need it. In parallel, Axial
engages patients with the information and tools needed to improve their
ownership of after-care responsibilities.
SaaS technology platform is built on open infrastructure and is
capable of managing virtually any type of health data and presenting it
in a consumer-like experience that accommodates any device with a web
browser. In December 2011 Axial's care transition suite was named first
prize winner in the US Department of Health and Human Services'
Partnership for Patients Initiative innovation competition for "Ensuring
Safe Transitions from Hospital to Home." A video of Axial's solution
