Empowering a Cardiovascular Physician with Visual Analytics to Optimize Pain and Sedation Management at Texas Children's Hospital
Treating critically ill children with cardiovascular disease is a daunting challenge for physicians, clinicians and nurses today. Understanding the intensity of the pain and delivering the appropriate care protocols without actionable data insights, and then correlating this with patient outcomes is a 'management by opinion' challenge confronting most children¹s hospitals across North America.
In this presentation, learn how a pediatric intensive care physician, daunted by this challenge, secured a copy of Tableau desktop to decipher insights from excel spreadsheets re: medication dosage for infants, to craft individual patient profiles. These actionable insights are driving data driven process improvements in sedation care protocols with positive impact on pediatric patient outcomes, while reducing LOS and the risk of 30 day re-admissions for these fragile patients while offering them a promise of a better quality of life.
