OhioHealth Corporation Key Developments

OhioHealth Corporation Announces Executive Changes

OhioHealth Corporation announced that Bob Millen is set to retire as chief operating officer in December after 10 year in that role. Mike Louge, executive vice president and past CFO of the Columbus hospital system, will succeed him. The chief operating officer oversees the system's 12 hospitals and more than 50 outpatient sites, and Louge continues leadership of IT, physician practices, relationships with managed care companies and developing regional partnerships. The company created two new senior vice president roles to split oversight of hospitals as the system covers a wider swath of the state: Dr. Steve Markovich was promoted from president of OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital to senior vice president of Central Ohio operations - overseeing five hospitals in Franklin and Delaware counties, outpatient and home care network and major medical service lines such as cardiology, neuroscience and cancer. Cheryl Herbert is now senior vice president of regional operations, for hospitals outside Central Ohio. She will continue duties as senior vice president for clinical support services, which include pharmacy, laboratory, nutrition and sterile processing. Brian Jepson succeeds Markovich as Riverside Methodist president, and Dr. Elizabeth Brill will follow Jepson as hospital COO. She had been Riverside's vice president of surgical services.

Ohiohealth and IBM Collaborate to Prevent Infections in Hospitals

OhioHealth and IBM have announced collaboration to aid in the prevention of infections using a network of wireless sensors and big data analytics that measure hand-washing practices. OhioHealth will use the technology to provide hospital administrators with real-time data that can be used to reduce healthcare associated infections (HAIs) like methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Clostridium difficile, which affect 1 in every 20 patients in US healthcare facilities. The newly installed IBM technology at one of its Columbus hospitals provides OhioHealth's hospital staff with new information and observations that were not available before. Analyzing hand-washing data gives stakeholders deep insights into the compliance levels of different departments, shifts, job roles, as well as variations based on other social behavioral factors. The real-time information is used to alert hospital personnel when proper hygiene habits are not being followed so that corrective action can be taken to reduce germ exposure to patients. Developed by IBM Research, Low-power Mote Technologies (LMT) with built-in RFID capabilities measure and control physical systems, such as hand-washing stations. The LMT sensors are located at hand-washing stations in patient rooms and hallways, and are connected through a wireless mesh network. They capture time-stamped information on use of each hand washing station. They also detect when hospital staff enter or exist patient rooms and, due to their RFID technology, they are able to identify healthcare workers. Measurement and Managements Technologies (MMT) were created by IBM researchers to collect, manage and process real-time data. The hand-washing data is streamed via cloud technology to the MMT where it is analyzed and stored to be used for on-demand reports, presentations and compliance studies. The analytics use the raw data streamed by the motes to determine whether or not hand washing events took place. The on-demand data can be used to estimate compliance levels, trends and correlations for different departments, shifts and job roles.
