Partnership Gives the VA the Power of Revolutionary Technology Combined with the Support Needed for Veterans – with Fewer Financial Resources
JUNO BEACH, Fla. (November 21, 2017) — Document Storage Systems, Inc. (DSS, Inc.), a leading provider of health information technology (HIT) solutions for federal, private and public healthcare organizations, today announced a partnership with Jvion, Inc., developer of the leading Cognitive Clinical Success Machine, an award winning Artificial Intelligence (AI) solution. The partnership will deliver patient-specific risk propensity and clinical action recommendations that will improve the health of Veterans.
With the combined power of Jvion’s Cognitive Clinical Success Machine and DSS’s implementation methodology and VistA expertise, this new partnership will allow the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to leverage technological AI innovation and support for helping Veterans to achieve better health outcomes with fewer clinical and financial resources.
Jvion’s Cognitive Clinical Success Machine combines Eigenspace and Eigen Sphere technology to deliver a comprehensive patient view amplified beyond the risk of an event to the clinical actions that will improve outcomes and drive engagement. By applying this Eigen-based machine to the VA patient population, the agency will be able to reduce target medical events including:
- Ambulatory Care Sensitive Hospitalizations (ACSH)
- Pressure Injuries (Ulcers)
- Clostridium Difficile Infections (CDIs)
“To more effectively manage patient risk, the VA can now leverage advanced cognitive machine technology that enables faster patient-specific action across a broad spectrum of risks,” said Mark Byers, president and CEO of DSS, Inc. “Through this partnership, we have created a highly effective innovation that helps to increase the quality of life for Veterans as well as meet the strategic needs of the VA.”
In addition to improving patient-level outcomes, the new partnership can effectively support Veteran Health Administration’s (VHA) Strategic Analytics for Improvement and Learning (SAIL), a system for summarizing hospital system performance within the VA. SAIL assesses 25 Quality Measures in areas such as death rate, complications, and patient satisfaction, as well as overall efficiency and physician capacity at individual VA Medical Centers.
“This is an ideal partnership for us because DSS offers deep VistA expertise, and has a legacy of providing the most cutting-edge innovations to the VA,” said Ritesh Sharma, COO for Jvion. “With our combined strengths, the VA can positively impact more Veterans than ever before, while at the same time saving costs.”
