Advantages of On-Premise Solutions for Healthcare Organizations

On-Premise software is just as it sounds: software installed locally and run on the organization’s computers and servers. The associated software as well as the clinical data entered is stored locally on in-house servers, it never leaves the premises. The hospital’s IT department maintains the on-premise IT infrastructure in private data centers typically housed in the facility.

On-Premise solutions allow a hospital to implement its own backup and disaster recovery policies/measures; IT has absolute control over application updates and of outage and maintenance plans. The EDITLife Data and Clinical Workflow Management software solution offers on-premise deployment. Many of the benefits of On-Premise solutions are described in this whitepaper.

Streamlining the Transplant Conditioning Process

EDITLife Simplifies Workflows

An essential component of allogeneic and autologous hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) is the conditioning regimen administered before the hematopoietic cell infusion. Intended to allow engraftment of donor cells and/or control a malignant disease, conditioning regimens – typically based on national protocols and cutting-edge studies – play an important role in the long-term outcome of HCT. While the overall goals of conditioning regimens are the same  HCT regimens vary from one patient to another.

EDITLife streamlines transplant/infusion processes and improves data quality throughout every transplant phase. Many of the automated and fully integrated EDITLife features that help clinicians manage the often very complex Conditioning process are described in this white paper.

The Importance of Data Visualization

Tools for Interpreting Transplant Data

Physicians and clinicians need ways to paint a picture of transplant data in order to interpret it. Too often, however, care teams are using inefficient means of working with data, such as spreadsheets. Anyone who has ever stared at a massive spreadsheet of data and could not see a trend, knows how much more effective a visualization can be. If we can see something, we internalize it quickly.

Data visualization tools make transplant data less challenging to comprehend – helping transplant programs by delivering essential transplant data in the most efficient way possible. EDITLife’s data visualization tools enable care teams to understand the significance of trends, patterns, and unexpected changes in the data quickly so they can make high-impact decisions that improve outcomes.

Collaborative Communication Tools for Transplant

Eliminating Barriers to Effective Communication

Communication flows forward, backwards and sideways in all organizations, including cell therapy and solid organ transplant centers. The benefits of effective interdisciplinary communication include improved patient outcomes, increased patient satisfaction (poor communication among providers can negatively impact a patient’s perception of care delivery), and increased healthcare savings (less wasted time).

Technology that coordinates workflows and stores transplant-specific data in one central, easily accessible place is key to effective interdisciplinary teamwork. Software tools that support consistent communication enable IDT members to be clear about their own and each other’s roles. Seeing the timing and results of each other’s work guides treatment planning, decision making, and care coordination.


Innovative Tools Simplify Implementation

Innovative, Automated Tools and Processes

EDITLife, the Transplant Management System vendor with the most advanced technologies, knows the challenges that implementation can present and how to mitigate them. Using EDITLife tools and processes, even the most complex implementation can realize success and return on investment in a reasonable amount of time. EDITLife’s innovative implementation software helps ensure that the process stays within the allotted budget and timeframe.

Implementation tools developed by the EDITLife team keep the process organized and efficient. MSA’s automated implementation tools track every task and every sub-task within each phase, displays percentage of tasks completed along with who completed each task and when, and more.

The Power of Integrating Cell Therapy Clinics & Stem Cell Processing Labs

The Benefits of a Unified Single Platform

Data silos often emerge in hospitals because each department has different goals, priorities, and responsibilities – and separate databases. Siloed systems curb efficiency and stifle collaboration, as well as increase the likelihood of miscommunications and critical information not reaching those who need it most.

A fully-integrated system that connects the cell therapy clinic and the stem cell processing lab helps both teams realize the full value of patient and product data. An application that integrates the two helps the center remain in compliance, streamline the reporting process, secure data, improve quality and efficiencies, and reduce IT time and costs.

LABHero justification meeting

Justification for Licensing EDITLife’s LABHero Module

For The Cell Processing Lab

Cell processing labs face an array of new and sometimes contradictory challenges, e.g., finding ways to increase quality while decreasing costs, and ensuring better product/patient outcomes despite increasing patient volume. LABHero, the EDITLife data and clinical workflow management system’s module for cell processing labs, addresses these challenges.

LABHero enables the cell processing lab to reap the many benefits of an automated and integrated software system. A justification that presents solid evidence of the software’s merit – including qualitative benefits such as streamlined operations and improved product safety – increases the likelihood of gaining approval for LABHero.


Justification for Licensing a Data and Clinical Workflow Management System

For Cell Therapy

Determining whether to move forward with licensing a new cell therapy data and clinical workflow management system is a decision that should only be made after knowing all the facts. Decision makers understandably want to see good reasons for implementing new software. Along with costs, tangible and intangible benefits should be presented for consideration.

Hospital Administrators often do not have full visibility into what the Cell Therapy Department has to go through to avoid costly mistakes, document critical key information not in the hospital EHR, and make the best possible decisions. Preparing a well thought-out justification that brings these points to their attention will increase the likelihood of approval.

BMT and CAR-T Cell Therapy transplant

Keeping Up With CAR-T

CAR-T Adoption is Not Without Challenges

CAR-T (T-cells expressing Chimeric Antigen Receptors) therapy has displayed significant success in treating patients with otherwise incurable B-cell lymphomas. The field is rapidly expanding to include new disease indications and CAR designs. CAR-T adoption, however, is not without challenges. The industry needs to learn as quickly as possible about all aspects of CAR-T.

The Center for Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR) has expanded to capture CAR-T data for research purposes. Four new CAR-T forms have been created that can be electronically submitted. Six forms originally created for HCT have been modified to include CAR-T data. CIBMTR supports electronic form submission via its AGNIS interface.


EHRs Can Be A Big Miss

For Transplant/Infusion Centers

Quite often the school of thought has been that an EHR is a one-size fits all, silver bullet that will reduce costs, reduce errors, and increase productivity. It’s supposed to deliver everything to everyone in one system – with no need for ancillary solutions.

In theory, this should be true. However, for specialty departments like cell therapy and solid organ transplant centers, the required specific details are either not available or easily accessible within the encounter-based EHR. It’s becoming more and more apparent that ancillary solutions, such as data and clinical workflow management systems tightly interfaced to the EHR are required in order to fully support clinicians and program staff.
