Leveraging Real-Time Data to Improve COVID-19 Care

MDmetrix deploys their platform on the front line of the health crisis

MDmetrix: Free Mission Control Helps Clinicians Fight COVID-19

April 16, 2020 | Abree Murch


In times like this, we all need to hear — and share — constructive news about work being done to tackle problems caused by COVID-19. Here’s what some AVG portfolio companies are contributing.


Today’s Portfolio Company: MDmetrix

Portfolio company MDmetrix is a healthcare data analytics, visualization, and AI firm that serves hospitals and surgery centers, allowing them to quickly and easily leverage their own data. The result: Clinical operations can improve care and deliver results. Now, to help hospital leaders and frontline physicians combat the pandemic, the company is providing free COVID-19 Mission Control subscriptions to UW Medicine and other hospitals.

Using MDmetrix, clinicians themselves can compare the effectiveness of protocols, instantly asserting and adapting care during the crisis. The platform leaps beyond dashboards and puts insights directly in physicians hands now, when they need it more.

COVID-19 Mission Control

MDmetrix developed the COVID-19 Mission Control platform to deliver insights from the customer’s hospital, offer responses to  custom inquiries, and help hospitals improve patient care and optimize utilization of critical resources. No IT integration is needed for the platform or training, and it can use structured data from any EMR.

The goal of the platform is threefold:

  1. Leverage real world data. Data at the local level is the most useful for a hospital’s decisions. MDmetrix is the analytical window into a hospital’s electronic medical records.
  2. Get answers fast. MDmetrix enables clients to ask clinical questions and get actionable answers in just 2-5 minutes from EMR input to answer.
  3. Transform clinical operations. With the push of a button, clinicians and hospital administrators can visualize, evaluate, and monitor patient care and clinical performance, so they can quickly adapt and improve care across teams, conditions, and protocols.

MDmetrix’s Mission Control platform has facilitated substantial healthcare improvements since 2016, including enabling the first-ever opioid-free surgery center. The tremendous impact on the quality and cost of patient care has been documented in more than 30 academic publications and recognitions in the past year.
