How Qmetis Works

For any hospital, or clinician or quality care executive seeking to better understand their own hospital’s adherence to the latest standards of care, to measure those levels seamlessly and quickly, to consistently maintain high levels once achieved, and to provide a unique training tool for their staff – Qmetis may be the answer.

As an interactive quality assessment and quality assurance software system, Qmetis is uniquely built to measure your levels of compliance, to quickly identify areas of non-compliance with approved treatment guidelines, and to do so interactively, collaboratively, and quickly, recognizing the time constraints on any clinical team.

In a clinical setting, in the instance of traumatic brain-injured patients but for other conditions as well, Qmetis works as follows:

  • A patient with a Glasgow Coma Score of 8 or below arrives at the hospital.
  • A patient with a Glasgow Coma Score of greater than 8 would not be a suitable case for the Qmetis program, which is designed for the more severe head injury cases as indicated by a score of 8 or less.
  • After being taken into the intensive care unit (ICU), once stable, the patient is registered into the Qmetis system by a nurse, resident, etc.
  • The registration process, most likely completed by an ICU nurse, is done just once for the duration of the patient’s stay in the ICU, requiring 3 minutes or less.
  • Subsequently, at a recommended level of once per shift, or as the patient’s condition changes, a Qmetis session is conducted whereby information on the patient’s condition and the current course of treatment is inputted.
  • Sessions can take as little as 90 seconds.
  • The Qmetis Feedback Report is generated and indicates where care is consistent or inconsistent with the latest treatment guidelines for that condition – in this case, severe head injury – allowing for course corrections if decided upon and an immediate quality assessment, for consistency of care across cases and for staff training.

Key Features

Qmetis’s first product is for adult traumatic brain injury. This is because there is ample evidence now in the medical literature indicating that following evidence-based guidelines when treating these patients dramatically improves patient outcomes while reducing acute care costs by 20%. Qmetis’s products provide real-time feedback to doctors and nurses on whether or not the care being given is consistent with evidence-based treatment guidelines for traumatic brain injury.

Key Features of the Traumatic Brain Injury Product:

  • Quality Assessment: The Qmetis program assesses compliance with evidence-based recommendations for patient care by national subspecialty organizations.
  • Quality Assurance: After assessing compliance, the feedback form apprises caregivers of their current treatment vis-à-vis evidence-based recommendations.
  • Report Module, Product Dashboard: The Qmetis software dashboard allows clinical staff to review each specific area of treatment to identify all areas of non-compliance, by shift, by patient.
  • Ongoing Record of Physician Behavior Modification: The patient’s condition and care provided are followed over the entire time in the ICU, showing change in care as feedback is received where non-compliance exists.
  • Real-Time, Web-Based Interactive Software: Accessed through the Internet, providing real-time interactivity with health care providers at the point of patient care.
  • Provision of Liability Protection: Independent, third-party documentation of compliant care.
  • Highly Secure, HIPAA-Compliant Computer Environment.
