Traumatic Brain Injury

Adult TbiQx

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is still the leading cause of death and disability in the United States for those between the ages of 1 and 44. And inside the release of the 4th Edition severe adult head injury guidelines, by the Brain Trauma Foundation and AANS, there are 28 Recommendations for care – 14 of which are new. How to educate staff on new evidence in moments? How to bring new guidelines to the care of the patient so quickly? Qmetis.

Ped TbiQx

Pediatric TBI strikes approximately 35,000 young people under the age of 19 each year, with roughly 7,500 deaths per year. Recent studies have indicated that at least 50% of youths who suffer a TBI have a “poor outcome” at six months. As with our adult TBI module, the pediatric TBI software is here to provide real-time quality assessment and quality assurance – easily, immediately, and collaboratively.

How TbiQx Works

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.

  • 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

TBI provides real-time feedback to doctors and nurses on whether or not the care being given is consistent with evidence-based treatment guidelines.

  • 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.
  • Immediate Software Updates as New Guidelines Are Published.
