Using near real-time patient data collected from hospitals across North Carolina, PDS+ from NCHA helps hospitals and health systems prevent costly readmissions and unnecessary repeat-ED visits, identify gaps in care, and track crucial trends in patient behavior. Available only from NCHA, PDS+ is a powerful new ally in the drive toward value-based care and one you can put to work today.
How Many Patients Started with You?
Because where those patients go next is no small matter–to their long-term health and to your hospital’s goals. That’s why PDS+ lets you track where and when patients are receiving post-acute care. So whether patients come in via your ED, out-patient surgery or as in-patients, PDS+ can help you avoid costly Medicare readmission penalties while collaborating with other NCHA members to deliver more effective, comprehensive health management.
It’s the Data – Not the Patient – That Boomerangs Back to You
If you operate a 24/7 Emergency Department, your organization already transmits data into the N.C. Hospital Emergency Surveillance System (NCHESS). As a PDS+ subscriber, you essentially “flip the flow,” getting information in return from all other PDS+ users. Your team can track your patients through ED data gathered from other hospitals statewide, better equipping you to successfully address micro- and macro-level issues, from spotting a patient who was readmitted to a different health system shortly after leaving your care, to identifying discrete patient populations emerging as risks for high ED utilization.
PDS+: Positively Valuable from the First Click
The more data that flows into PDS+ from NCHA members, the more benefits it can deliver to all subscribers–including the professionals on your team:
