Information management is the hallmark of the Neonatal Information System™ since its inception in 1985.
The NIS™ was designed in concert with clinicians as well as systems engineers. The result of this partnership is a powerful data interrogation tool that can be used by those who may have little, if any, computer skills.
Virtually all of the data contained in the NIS™ can be used in any analytical report you can imagine. Create statistical, quality indexing and quality assurance reports as well as logbooks, clinical pathways or adhoc queries - the possibilites are limitless! These can include single valued fields – such as birthweight – and multi-valued fields such as diagnoses. You can pose questions upon questions and layer upon layer of analyses.
And, if you wish, move data directly from the NIS™ into other databases such as Excel to creat powerful charts, graphs and other graphics.
The possibilities are endless – but here are some examples.
DATA MANAGEMENT – Automatically process data for a full-range of purposes, including the generation of user defined reports, real-time querying of data, creation of logbooks and statistical analyses.
QUALITY INDEXING – Create and control the quality parameters for your institution. The NIS™ has a built-in Quality Indexing feature to facilitate your monitoring and assessment of your quality management goals.
QUALITY IMPROVEMENT – Improve your quality reporting through user determined clinical trends and statistical reports generated for any set of variables over any period of time.
DATA AGGREGATION – Affiliated hospitals can choose report and compare a vast array of clinical information from multiple NICUs for bench marking clinical conditions, treatments and outcomes of one NICU compared to the total population of all participating NICUs. The same applies to affiilated hospitals using the NIS™ High-Risk Follow-up application.
CLINICAL RESEARCH – Utilize data management support for clinical trials in an individual NICU or for studies involving robust data sets from the aggregation of multiple NICU data.
ELECTRONIC DATA TRANSFER – Electronic transfer of pre-selected demographic and clinical data from the NIS™ to state, regional and national repositories.
