The NDI program gathers data at several points throughout a procedure. Our free-to-use tablet will come to your facility loaded with your custom information and will guide you through the process of gathering data.
We gather different data sets for you, including:
- Patient demographics
- Supply usage and spend
- Pharmaceuticals prescribed
- Insurance coverage
- Patient comorbidities and longitudinal outcome trends
- Cost per procedure
Procedure type and breakdown
The data can help facilities identify where they may be over using or spending on supplies, as well as patterns in patient outcomes and where improvements can be made to reduce adverse events.
At this time, NDI Surgical does not integrate with any EMR programs. However, this functionality is in future development plans. If you are currently using EMR, you can manually upload anesthesia logs and recover notes into the program.
The personal health data we receive from patient’s charts will only be handled by properly trained professionals. Once it is collected, it will promptly be removed from the tablet and stored in a highly encrypted secure cloud. The aggregated data and insights we provide will always be de-identified and stripped of personal identification. Patient specific information will never be shared with anyone.
Yes – all facilities need to be accredited to participate in the program. It is not necessary to be accredited by AAAASF. Participation is voluntary and will not affect your accreditation status.
To get started, we need a signed Data Sharing Agreement. From there, we’ll request your procedure preference cards and access to your supply vendors’ websites. We’ll use this information to pre-populate the program specific to your facility.
Our program is complimentary for outpatient surgical facilities.
Data is submitted through the tablet where it is transferred into our secure cloud storage.
NDI makes a profit by packaging and selling the de-identified data received through the program. For example, the data collected could be used by medical device manufacturers to make further enhancements to their product lines.
