Part Three of How Can Decision Management Systems Transform Enterprises?
While many of the notable examples about uses for Decision Management Systems concern decisions made without any human interaction, several successful systems were made to support decisions made by people. These systems analyze collected data before providing the optimal recommendations to those working in a given organization.
Traditional systems in several industries, such as the healthcare and medical industry, were only able to provide information. Systems stored records and other relevant information that were then presented to healthcare professionals when they needed it. These old systems were far too passive and provided no additional help. With Decision Management Systems, healthcare professionals receive intelligent recommendations based on data contained in stored medical records. With every piece of information that is changed, the recommendations are also adapted based on the new data.
Better Patient Outcomes
Personalized treatment is much more painless when there is a Decision Management System in place to support healthcare efforts. If a healthcare provider required specific patient data on how effective a certain treatment is, several analytical and statistical tools can be used to collect and analyze information that spans several years and covers thousands of patients. The resulting insights will be able to refine procedures, improve quality of care and reduce complications. Since the process is automated and done in real-time, organizations are capable of creating accurate personalized reports very quickly, cutting down on patient complications and mortality rates.
Another effective use for a Decision Management System in the healthcare industry concerns the prevention of harmful medication combinations. With an integrated system, healthcare professionals can be regularly updated with the possible harmful drug combinations based on a patient’s current state. When test results are collected, they are automatically added to the patient’s medical records before being analyzed by the system. The system then applies best practices to determine whether changes should be made or if any other steps should be taken. With this development, healthcare professionals experience fewer instances of sudden and unexpected patient emergencies. The detection of critical conditions is also made better by a Decision Management System. Reductions of patient confinement time and the call for expensive and unnecessary procedures are noted improvements as well.
