UnityPoint Health achieves early success with LogicStream health clinical process improvement solutions

MINNEAPOLIS – August 15, 2017 – LogicStream Health announced today that UnityPoint Health® is
already realizing the impact of its Clinical Process Improvement solutions on core initiatives, less than
three months after implementation. The West Des Moines, Iowa-based health system is leveraging
LogicStream to optimize its electronic health record (EHR) and understand its current EHR build.

“LogicStream gives us the ability to inform operational decisions and answer complicated questions
around record-usage data captured from the EHR. These are questions we’ve asked previously, but were
never able to answer in real-time,” said Denise Gomez, chief nursing informatics officer at UnityPoint
Health. “With self-service access to LogicStream, we’re able to look at things like sepsis screenings and
compare protocol utilization to evidence-based best practices in real-time. This makes our teams
extremely efficient at making high-quality, data-driven decisions.”

UnityPoint Health is logging effective use cases, such as sepsis and medication order utilization, to
define and understand the current process, as well as to identify the best practices to present to its
clinicians. This work is especially critical in health systems the size of UnityPoint Health, which spans
nine regions and four states.

“While instituting a more structured clinical governance with the EHR, we identified the challenges our
teams were facing, specifically around nursing documentation and order set management. By optimizing
our EHR and managing our extensive libraries of clinical knowledge, we can help drive best practices,”
said Sarah Terry-Rost, director of clinical applications at UnityPoint Health. “LogicStream is also creating
efficiencies in the work we’re already doing and allows us to hone our optimization efforts.”

Given the multidisciplinary nature of care delivery, organizations need to put an enterprise-level focus
on the entire care team versus individual clinicians. LogicStream equips organizations with all the
necessary tools to gain a comprehensive understanding of how to address regulatory requirements,
hospital-acquired conditions, advanced payment models and CMS Star ratings. Ultimately, this improves
the system-wide clinical processes that drive outcomes, patient/provider satisfaction and financial
performance.

“Clinical process improvement is complicated. The amount of data and information being presented to
clinicians can be overwhelming. LogicStream is the only solution that can drive elevated levels of clinical
best practice adoption while providing self-service access to the specific information operational
stakeholders require to positively impact outcomes,” said Patrick Yoder, LogicStream CEO. “LogicStream
Clinical Process Improvement solutions facilitate sustainable and scalable quality improvements, so
health systems striving to become highly-reliable healthcare organizations can more proactively
optimize care quality.”
