That’s because Lee’s physicians used the data in their Epic healthcare software to verify early reports linking COVID-19 to blood clots.</p> <p>Their analysis showed that otherwise healthy patients with the virus are three times more likely to develop fatal clots.</p> <p>Lee Health’s experience shows how observational data help scientists discover new connections that can prove critical to advancing patient care.</p> <p>Observational data allow you to look at a specific variable, such as “COVID-19 positive,” and determine quickly whether there is a link to a specific clinical condition, such as developing a blood clot. It also helps get lifesaving guidance into the hands of doctors and nurses quickly.</p> <p>The gold standard for clinical evidence is the peer-reviewed, randomized controlled trial, but that process can often take years. While this approach is necessary for novel treatments and vaccines, we can’t wait years to learn more about COVID-19.</p> <p>To better treat people in this pandemic, we need to learn everything we can about the virus as quickly as possible. Observational data provide clues that can save lives today and help researchers understand where to focus for tomorrow’s peer-reviewed studies.</p> <p><strong>RELATED: <a href="https://www.fiercehealthcare.com/tech/mayo-clinic-epic-amazon-and-others-collaborating-to-increase-covid-19-testing-vaccine" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Mayo Clinic, Amazon, others launch collaboration to increase COVID-19 testing, vaccine development</a></strong></p> <p>In May, the Epic Health Research Network, or <a href="https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/epic-launches-a-journal-for-the-21st-century-the-epic-health-research-network-301051899.html" rel="nofollow">EHRN</a>, was launched in an effort to make observational data available to all physicians and researchers. EHRN is a collaborative journal for the 21st century using observational data from participating healthcare organizations. It’s a platform to share novel discoveries from a large patient population, and it is open to any healthcare organization or researcher to submit their observations or collaborate on future possible studies or treatments.</p> <p>EHRN also offers insights and ideas Epic researchers have observed based on de-identified patient data that Epic customers have collected over decades.</p> <p>Today, data from more than 50 million people are helping drive insights shared through EHRN, and we expect that number to grow to 200 million.</p> <p>With Epic customers’ permission, EHRN is investigating how patients have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.</p> <p>In one case, EHRN published age-related <a href="https://ehrn.org/mortality-of-covid-19-admitted-patients-on-mechanical-ventilators/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer">mortality rates of COVID-19 patients who received invasive mechanical ventilation</a>. In another, it found that as people sheltered in place, fewer of them were able to keep up with preventive screenings and appointments. As a result, the number of <a href="https://ehrn.org/delays-in-preventive-cancer-screenings-during-covid-19-pandemic/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer">routine cancer screenings decreased by 84% to 96% </a></p> <p>In response, Epic has plans in place to work with healthcare organizations to better understand how these decreased screenings might affect future cancer rates in our country.</p> <p><strong>RELATED: <a href="https://www.fiercehealthcare.com/hospitals-health-systems/industry-voices-how-health-data-could-help-covid-19-if-we-can-get-it-right" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Industry Voices—How health data could help with COVID-19 (if we can get it right)</a></strong></p> <p>EHRN is not alone. Preprint platforms such as Dr. John Inglis’ bioRxiv and medRxiv do something similar. They are designed to promote the rapid sharing of knowledge to respond quickly to emerging health crises, like COVID-19.</p> <p>As noted in a <a href="https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.05.29.20115253v1" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer">recent study</a> posted to medRxiv, “There is a paucity of data that can be used to guide the management of critically ill patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Global collaboration offers the best chance of obtaining these data, at scale and in time. In the absence of effective therapies, insights derived from real-time observational data will be a crucial means of improving outcomes.”</p> <p>We know there are many questions that health experts, policy makers, and individuals need answers to as we all battle COVID-19.</p> <p>As one of the nation’s largest healthcare records companies, Epic takes its responsibility to help discover and share new information seriously. We encourage you to visit <a href="http://www.ehrn.org/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer">EHRN</a> and send our observational data team your questions.</p> <p>Together, we can uncover new insights about the virus and ultimately save lives.</p> <p><em>Judith R.

We applied the principles in our own organization, but we have learned more from working with hundreds of leaders around the world. The most important learning? Organizations don’t change unless leaders do. Changing habits and leadership mental models is hard work. It takes time, commitment, and a roadmap to follow. Leaders need help to do that.</p> <p><em><a href="https://www.amazon.com/Becoming-Change-Leadership-Strategies-Improvement-ebook/dp/B086Z2BHGL">Becoming the Change</a></em> is a roadmap that has emerged from our research on leadership from around the globe. It is working which is why we decided that in the time of the Covid crisis we needed to write this book. Leadership behavior can unleash the creativity of staff which is critically important do solve problems during the crisis. Or, on the other hand, behavior can shut staff down. We will show example after example of leaders who have committed to changing their behavior and have succeeded, resulting in remarkable improvement in organizational performance. In Africa, a 42% reduction in death rates in children. In San Francisco a 20% improvement in throughput in the Emergency room with the same number of staff. In Ontario every executive in the organization having a plan for personal improvement including a plan for board members.</p> <p>On this journey from South Africa to Europe to North America we will show no matter what societal culture you live in there are behavioral traits that if practiced lead to unimaginable performance. But leaders must “become the change”. By modeling different behavior leaders set the expectations for everyone. The cascading of these expectations is what drives the significant performance improvements.</p> <p>But this isn’t only a book about what great leaders did. We share how they did it with the specific development templates they used which you can download. You can then try it on your own. This means you can learn by doing. All you need to do to begin is to commit to being willing to change. The book will step you through what you need to do, and the examples will help you avoid pitfalls. If you have trouble, we are happy to have you contact us and we will talk you through it.</p> <p>At the end of the book we discuss what the future may look like. We aren’t predicting it we are describing what systems need to be in place to succeed in any possible future. The existing delivery system is designed around care givers not patients. How do we build a patient centered care system? We will touch on the design features and processes for new care model development. The skill sets needed are different than in traditional healthcare delivery. We will explain what new skill sets are required for the future and how our mental model of care delivery must change.</p> <p>We have learned a lot since the publication of our last book Management on the Mend. We know that to ingrain organizational excellence requires people and processes. We have a much better understanding of what leaders need to do and what processes need to be in place to support them. We are excited to share this work with the hope you can become the change.</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://createvalue.org/articles_and_news/becoming-change-different-approach-building-organizational-excellence/">Becoming the Change: A Different Approach to Building Organizational Excellence</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://createvalue.org">Catalysis</a>.</p> Podcast, The Lens – 13.
