BURLINGTON, Mass. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Arcadia Solutions, a leading provider of data-driven quality improvement solutions, along with the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU) and Medical/Surgical Intensive Care Unit (MSICU) at Boston Children's Hospital, today announced the next version of its T3 platform. This web-based, scalable, clinician designed computer application aggregates physiologic information from many monitoring devices at the patient’s bedside to create a single view of patient vitals and allow real-time remote monitoring of each child in the CICU and MSICU.
“We’ve been working with Arcadia Solutions on the T3 platform for over three years and continue to improve its functionality by including features that will make this system highly invaluable within the ICU and other care units,” said Dr. Melvin C. Almodovar, MD, Medical Director of the CICU, Boston Children’s Hospital. “The T3 platform is critical as it increases the quality of care by helping the care providers make predictive, data-driven decisions, rather than prescriptive, intuitive ones. It will also help capture, archive and analyze information to create new critical care best practices and procedures in the future.”
“I have been a part of this project from the beginning and will continue to work with Boston Children’s Hospital and Arcadia Solutions in my new role. Our goal is to form a consortium of hospitals using T3 to collaborate, coordinate and collect additional data across an entire network of pediatric units to help predict outcomes based on that data. While the platform has been fully functioning for many months we are excited about deploying our first predictive algorithm to aid patient stability assessment. In the ICU, stability is paramount,” said Peter Laussen, MB.BS., FCICM, Chief, Department of Critical Care Medicine, Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.
T3 stands for "Tracking, Trajectory and Trigger" and brings together and streamlines the multiple flows of information that critical care doctors and nurses use to make life-saving decisions. T3:
Arcadia Solutions and Boston Children’s Hospital have worked together to add the following functionality to further increase the quality of care within its ICUs:
“Within the ICU, doctors can have more than 10 devices at each bedside, all recording vital information about how each patient is responding to treatment. Given the information overload they face daily, we’re extremely proud that they not only use T3 but see the value it provides,” said Michael Gleeson, Senior Vice President of Product Strategy, Arcadia Solutions. “We are excited to release a new version of this tool as it provides a visual tool for clinicians within the ICU that is equivalent to the tools meteorologists use to predict weather patterns. With T3, the hospital can prevent deteriorations in the patient’s condition by making the data transparent and easily analyzed through advanced visualization.”
T3 is currently being used in nearly 60 beds across the Cardiac and Med-Surg ICU units at Boston Children’s Hospital.
