Brazilian hospital uses analytics to improve ICU treatment for patients

Staff at Hospital Estadual Getúlio Vargas – a public hospital that serves citizens in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – are using advanced analytics to help improve the care and treatment of its patients.

The hospital is using an analytics solution from Microsoft partner Epimed Solutions to improve the quality of its intensive care unit (ICU) treatments.

The team at Hospital Estadual Getúlio Vargas are using the solution to evaluate care and treatment patterns for its ICU patients.

Thanks to the improved insights gained from the solution, the team has shortened the length of stay for ICU patients by just over three days. Furthermore, mortality rates for ICU patients have been reduced by approximately 21%.

By reducing length of stay for patients, critical care beds are freed up more quickly. This means more patients can pass through the 22-bed ICU at Hospital Estadual Getúlio Vargas.

Thanks to the use of the analytics solution, the hospital can now serve nearly two more patients per ICU bed each month.
