Data Analysis and Interactive Query System

At its core, the NIS has a robust data analysis capability that can be defined by the user and operated in real-time in the NICU for clinical decision and quality of care support. The data in the NIS can be confidentially aggregated within the NICU or among a network of NICU’s to create a powerful platform for quality assessment and clinical research utilizing a large data set of prospectively acquired clinical data. This type of data analysis can be effectively utilized for case management and cost-effective studies.

More Strengths and Advantages of the NIS:

  • Real-Time Information Access
  • Built-in calculations such as Nutritional Calculations and Growth Percentiles
  • Growth curves
  • Flexible data capture. The NIS accommodates daily, weekly, or chart summary methods of record keeping – depending on patient problems and clinical standards.
  • Designed specifically for Neonatology. The NIS provides a rich set of neonatal codes built within the database and allows for ICD9, ICD10 and CPT codes as well as other coding systems. The NIS comes to you with a complete set of code files ready for use – while still allowing you to define additional codes or data elements created specifically for your NICU.
  • Patient reports that you define and control. The NIS provides for comprehensive patient report formatting and definition. You can use the reports “as is” within the NIS, or modify the content and format to match the requirements of your hospital.
  • Integration with EMRs and other systems. The NIS can receive or share information with existing hospital information systems.
  • Export to Repositories - such as the VON eNICQ, the New York State Department of Health, Regional, State and National Repositories.
