LOS ANGELES, Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Stanson Health, a next-generation Clinical Decision Support (CDS) and

analytics company, today announced Geisinger Health System has contracted to install Stanson Health Clinical Decision Support and Stanson Analytics.

"As a high-performance health system, Geisinger provides innovation, quality and value to our

patients," said Alistair Erskine, M.D., Geisinger Chief Informatics Officer. "We've contracted with Stanson Clinical Decision Support to inject real-time, patient-specific intelligence directly into our electronic health record in order to help our physicians make evidence-based decisions to ensure better outcomes for our patients at a lower cost. We look to their analytics to help us monitor the performance of these interventions, benchmark physician response, and reduce overall alert fatigue."

The Stanson catalog of several hundred clinical decision support interventions are geared toward assisting physicians at the point of care. Content is focused on important care opportunities such as MACRA, Choosing Wisely, Antibiotic Stewardship, Opioid Management, and more. Stanson analytics help executive leadership understand clinician reaction to evidence-based recommendations and result in industry-leading follow rates. The combination of clinical interventions and closed-loop analytics help provider organizations succeed in health care reform, ACOs, risk-based payments, exchanges, and narrow networks.

"Many healthcare organizations have made significant investments to improve their capabilities in value-based care. Stanson's ability to provide meaningful, patient-specific information to physicians in real-time has resulted in improved patient care and financial outcomes," said Scott Weingarten, MD, Co-Founder, and Chairman of the Board at Stanson Health. "We are honored to have the opportunity to partner with Geisinger Health System, a world class health system and global leader in population health, to assist in their efforts to improve the quality and cost of patient care across their health system."
