ALL PHASES IN PROCESS EXCEPT DONATION/TRANSPLANT ARE MANAGED BY BREEZE™

MATCHGRID™

MATCHGRID™ is an advanced enterprise software application that allows clinicians to rapidly match living organ donors with patients who have willing, healthy, but incompatible donors.

Using advanced matching and optimization algorithms, MATCHGRID™ can evaluate all potential matches from 2-way all the way through 12-way combinations in minutes, saving transplant centers months of work previously required to assess a smaller number of pairs.

The software can also optimize the number of transplants for a given pool of donor/recipient pairs, ensuring the maximum number of transplants for the most difficult people to match, with the highest quality matches for each transplant hub in a paired kidney donation network.

MedSleuth BREEZE™: Offering

Robust & Flexible Patient-Focused Medical Questionnaire

Easy-to-use, web-based, adaptive interface streamlines medical history collection and provides a system of record for consistent histories across medical staff and departments.

An easy-to-read medical history in a format that healthcare providers can access via a secure internet website, print out, secure e-mail, or entry into an existing EMR.

Components that can be tailored to transplantation, preoperative, clinical trials, and other applications enable easy management of remote triaging, scheduling, risk management, and optimal care management

Multi-Faceted Value Proposition

Patient Value Proposition

Reduces Costs – Patients do not need to attend initial clinic visits to provide health histories (i.e., travel costs).

Saves Time – Standardizing the health history questionnaire ensures the same questions are not asked multiple times in different care settings and each patient receives questions based on their own unique characteristics.

Improves Quality of Care – Complete histories reduce morbidity and mortality rates.

Clinician Value Proposition

Saves Time – Patients do the upfront work of providing their medical histories.

Provides Relevant Data – The solution provides the information most relevant to each clinician in different care settings.

Reduces Risk – Clinicians need precise, relevant information in order to properly treat patients.

Improves Quality of Care – Complete histories reduce morbidity and mortality rates.

Increases Productivity – Clinicians do not need to spend time as costly scribes and can focus on delivering care.

Institution Value Proposition

Increases Profitability – Time savings leads to increased patient throughput, which leads to higher profitability.

Increases Billing Accuracy and
Reimbursement – Complete and accurate histories allow for comprehensive billing to payors (e.g., comorbid condition capture for risk adjusted payments).

Decreases Liabilities – Complete histories increases quality of care, which reduces morbidity and mortality rates.

Improves Reputation – BREEZE™ improves patient satisfaction, increases access, and captures data that enables research.

  • Validated by the VA and NIH for Accuracy

BREEZE TRANSPLANT ™ Modules

The BREEZE TRANSPLANT™ Recipient module can help evaluate transplant candidates.

  • Reach more kidney recipient candidates 
  • Evaluate potential transplant candidates while saving time and resources for the clinic and the patient
  • In-depth and relevant questions customized to organ disease etiology and symptoms
  • EMR integration available

The BREEZE TRANSPLANT™ Wait List module can help manage a center’s transplant wait list.

MedSleuth’s innovative system automatically interacts with patients on the wait list for scheduled regular communication and elicits complete and timely clinical health information to help stay up-to-date with patients.

  • Upload wait list patient data batches into the BREEZE™ system
  • BREEZE TRANSPLANT™ elicits complete health information from wait list patients
  • BREEZE TRANSPLANT™ automatically sends the clinic complete patient info in real time
  • More patients complete the BREEZE TRANSPLANT™ wait list health questionnaire online than those who receive paper packets in the mail

The BREEZE TRANSPLANT™ Living Donor Evaluation module is designed to elicit specific health information that could impact a donor candidate’s ability to pursue donation.  The living donor evaluation module has several key components:

  • Complex pre-screening algorithm to ensure donor candidates meet basic criteria 
    • First-tier triage of patients who do not meet basic eligibility criteria for living donation followed by second-tier Health History Questionnaire (HHQ) for those meeting eligibility criteria
    • Differentiates between relative ineligibility (obesity, smoking) and absolute ineligibility (Diabetes, Hep C)
    • Provides individualized automatic patient feedback regarding ineligibility and potential for future eligibility (stop smoking); transplant center contact information for additional questions
  • Customized communication for each donor candidate who does not meet basic eligibility criteria, to explain the reason for rejection 
  • Comprehensive health history evaluation for all donor candidates who pass the pre-screen, including required UNOS/ CMS questions 
  • Important clinical information and educational materials to help donor candidates become more informed about living donation

The BREEZE TRANSPLANT™ Living Donor Follow Up module can help gauge the health of donors post donation.  MedSleuth’s Living Donor Follow Up module collects clinical information (procedures, complications, etc.) and non-clinical information (employment status, insurance status, etc.).

  • Automates clinical data follow up at 6, 12, and 24 months for all living donors
  • Saves time and resources for staff and patients
  • Satisfies UNOS requirements with increased patient compliance
  • Improves donor satisfaction and communication

The BREEZE TRANSPLANT™ Recipient Follow Up module can help track the health status of recipients post-transplantation.

  • Automates clinical data follow up for all recipients
  • Saves time and resources for staff and patients
  • Satisfies UNOS requirements with increased patient compliance
  • Improves recipient satisfaction and communication
  • Ensures patients are going to appointments, taking medications, etc.

BREEZE ™ Clinical Validation

MedSleuth received a NIH grant in 2010 to test the efficacy of BREEZE™.   The study concluded an online questionnaire used to obtain a preop history is accurate and well accepted by patients.  The America Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) physical status assigned by the blinded reviewers based on the online survey was closer to the ASA physical status assigned by the provider on the day-of-surgery compared to the ASA physical status assigned by the blinded reviewers based on the preop clinic assessment.  This type of a tool is likely to increase satisfaction with the preop process and may play a role in reducing overall costs associated with traditional in-person evaluations.

MedSleuth was awarded a Veterans Health Administration Innovation grant that was used to study the benefits of BREEZE™ to the VA population in Nashville.  The research effort confirmed BREEZE™ was well accepted by patients, enjoyed high usability, and delivered an accurate output.
