Retrieve Dx

Retrieve Dx, real-time, cloud-based CDI application, improves care and documentation by alerting physicians to patient comorbidities and pre-existing conditions. Retrieve searches EHR for patient medical history and pertinent clinical results.

Retrieve Dx can improve patient documentation in a fraction of the time it currently takes. Retrieve's view of a patient's possible comorbid conditions can improve decision-making, optimize reimbursement, and increase physician satisfaction. It can also lead to more comprehensive charting, facilitates better patient hand-offs and admissions. Retrieve Dx analyzes the patient's record and presents all relevant comorbidities. The doctor can view reports, see past and present lab values, x-rays, EKGs and elect to include comorbidities in patient record. Documenting with Retrieve Dx can:

  • Improve mortality index
  • Improve quality scores
  • Provide more accurate documentation
  • Increase revenue capture

Use Cases

  • A patient presents with chest pain. The doctor opens the client EHR record to update the patient record, then clicks the Retrieve Dx button to check the patient's medical history. Retrieve shows suggested comorbidities for this patient. The patient has an electrolyte abnormality and hypertension. The doctor hovers his cursor over the suggested conditions and Retrieve Dx shows the current and past lab values. The doctor can then validate and elect to include these comorbidities in the patient's chart. Retrieve Dx also shows that there was a previous myocardial infarction (MI). The doctor can link to the EKG and validate the previous MI as well and include it in the record. The doctor accepts and saves the chosen comorbidities and closes out the record.

  • A patient suffers a fall and comes into the Emergency Department. The patient has a previous condition of malignant melanoma, a trauma survey was done, and several comorbidities were found. It is also noted that the patient has chronic anemia. By hovering over the "chronic" comorbidity, the doctor is given the values of both past and present hemoglobin and hematocrit levels. The doctor concurs with the comorbidity of chronic anemia and clicks to accept it into the record. The software notes that the patient's height and weight show that there is also severe malnutrition - a significant comorbidity. The software documents lactic acidosis. It also notes that if SIRS is present, lists the clinical indicators, and allows the doctor to determine SIRS is present due to an actual infection. Finally, the doctor sees that the atelectasis is found and can view the radiology report, validates it, and includes atelectasis into the patient record.
