EvidenceCare and Ardent Health Services announced their partnership to develop EvidenceCare’s product, CareGauge, in Ardent’s EHR system to give physicians real-time access to essential care and cost information.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Jan. 9, 2023) – EvidenceCare today announced a new partnership with Ardent Health Services to implement EvidenceCare’s patented and award-winning product, CareGauge, in its Epic Electronic Health Record (EHR) system.
Despite abundant sources of clinical and cost data, physicians rarely have access to the data they need at the point of care to make informed decisions.
EvidenceCare created CareGauge to give physicians access to cost and care insights in the EHR that adjusts in real-time as treatments are ordered. This unmatched visibility reduces unwarranted care variation and unnecessary cost.
With a focus on innovative ways to deliver high quality health care, Ardent is the latest health system to invest in implementing CareGauge in their EHR to be used by their clinicians.
“At Ardent, we are working to leverage the power of data and technology to make better decisions for patients,” said Marty Bonick, president and chief executive officer at Ardent. “This partnership with EvidenceCare is an investment in empowering our clinicians with better information to deliver the highest quality care.”
CareGauge gives physicians an easy, non-invasive way to get immediate feedback on utilization, length of stay, imaging, labs, medications, procedures, and more to help them make the most informed care decisions.
“To truly transform the way care is delivered, you must equip the people delivering care with innovative tools,” said F.J. Campbell, MD, chief medical officer at Ardent. “We’re excited about our physicians using CareGauge and leading the way to better care.”
“By delivering the right data at the right time, clinical workflows are optimized, and patient care is improved,” said Bo Bartholomew, CEO of EvidenceCare. “We’re excited about the opportunity to work with an innovative health system like Ardent that shares our desire to help physicians deliver the best care possible.”
