In addition, Dr. Peter Edelstein, Vice President and Chief Medical Officer for
Elsevier’s MEDai analytics group, will discuss “Predictive Analytics for the Bedside
[http://www.himssconference.org/Education/KCEventList.aspx?ItemNumber=2314&metadataID=42 ]
at HIMSS13′s Clinical & Business Analytics/Intelligence Knowledge Center on Monday, March
4, at 2 p.m. Elsevier also will introduce Pinpoint Risk, a predictive analytics solution
that identifies and helps prevent risks to inpatients.

Elsevier’s MEDai Navigator is the first payer analytics solution that goes beyond
predicting and managing risks for cost savings to empower providers to improve the quality
of care and patient outcomes. The new Physician Portal and Physician Profiling features
have been integrated into the enhanced MEDai Navigator solution to provide a more
complete, holistic approach to performance management in a common language that is
meaningful and relevant to both providers and payers.

MEDai Navigator:

        - Combines claims and clinical data into a single, clinically integrated
          view of the patient
        - Enables access to both patient-level analytics and performance metrics
        - Is configured to share information in real-world medical practice
        - Can be used on mobile devices (tablets and smart phones) at the point of care
        - Helps providers achieve the objectives of improving the patient experience of
          care, improving the health of populations, and reducing the cost of healthcare
        - Allows access to ClinicalKey [http://www.clinicalkey.com ], Elsevier's
          clinical insight engine, to provide the most current and clinically relevant
          evidence-based answers, expert commentary, MEDLINE abstracts and select third-party

“Actionable analytics not only helps payers and providers, but can significantly
improve the quality and delivery of care,” Edelstein said. “The new enhancements to
Navigator support our continued goal of providing meaningful care to patients.”

Elsevier’s Pinpoint Risk is an inpatient-specific prospective risk prediction tool
that stratifies and trends inpatient risks, allowing providers to intervene prior to risk
realization. This real-time predictive analytics solution supports case managers, nurses
and physicians using a laptop or tablet at the patient bedside. Clinical and
administrative inpatient-specific data is collected automatically and electronically and
then quickly analyzed along with the patient’s historical data to predict risks of
mortality, sepsis, transfer to ICU, excessive length of stay, and 30-day readmission.

Elsevier will demonstrate these and other clinical solutions at HIMSS13 (booth #6129)
throughout the conference. For more information visit
