PHILADELPHIA, March 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

   Dr. Peter Edelstein will discuss keys to successful clinical integration
  during his presentation on 'Predictive Analytics for the Bedside Provider'

Elsevier , a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical
information products and services, will present new and enhanced analytic and
clinical integration solutions at the Healthcare Information Management and
Systems Society (HIMSS) annual meeting in New Orleans, March 4-6, including a
new Physician Portal and expanded Physician Profiling as part of its enhanced
MEDai Navigator.

In addition, Dr. Peter Edelstein, Vice President and Chief Medical Officer for
Elsevier's MEDai analytics group, will discuss "Predictive Analytics for the
Bedside Provider" at HIMSS13's Clinical & Business Analytics/Intelligence
Knowledge Center on Monday, March 4, at 2 p.m. Elsevier also will introduce
Pinpoint Risk , a predictive analytics solution that identifies and helps
prevent risks to inpatients.

Elsevier's MEDai Navigator is the first payer analytics solution that goes
beyond predicting and managing risks for cost savings to empower providers to
improve the quality of care and patient outcomes. The new Physician Portal and
Physician Profiling features have been integrated into the enhanced MEDai
Navigator solution to provide a more complete, holistic approach to
performance management in a common language that is meaningful and relevant to
both providers and payers. 

MEDai Navigator :

  *Combines claims and clinical data into a single, clinically integrated
    view of the patient
  *Enables access to both patient-level analytics and performance metrics
  *Is configured to share information in real-world medical practice
  *Can be used on mobile devices (tablets and smart phones) at the point of
    care
  *Helps providers achieve the objectives of improving the patient experience
    of care, improving the health of populations, and reducing the cost of
    healthcare
  *Allows access to ClinicalKey , Elsevier's clinical insight engine, to
    provide the most current and clinically relevant evidence-based answers,
    expert commentary, MEDLINE abstracts and select third-party journals

"Actionable analytics not only helps payers and providers, but can
significantly improve the quality and delivery of care," Edelstein said. "The
new enhancements to Navigator support our continued goal of providing
meaningful care to patients."

Elsevier's Pinpoint Risk is an inpatient-specific prospective risk prediction
tool that stratifies and trends inpatient risks, allowing providers to
intervene prior to risk realization. This real-time predictive analytics
solution supports case managers, nurses and physicians using a laptop or
tablet at the patient bedside. Clinical and administrative inpatient-specific
data is collected automatically and electronically and then quickly analyzed
along with the patient's historical data to predict risks of mortality,
sepsis, transfer to ICU, excessive length of stay, and 30-day readmission.

Elsevier will demonstrate these and other clinical solutions at HIMSS13 (booth
#6129) throughout the conference. For more information visit
