Exploring the Eight Categories of MUSE
Updated: Oct 7, 2020
MUSE HC provides clinical teams with additional insights they need to identify patients who decline due to a disease . The power of this world class machine learning technology empowers clinical teams to positively intervene at an earlier stage for patients. This is valuable for everyone committed to the patient’s care. At MUSE HC, we’ve designed the product to classify patients according to their likelihood to transition to ensure patients receive the care they need as resources are allocated appropriately.
In order to ensure care teams provide appropriate care and allocate resources according to each patient’s need, MUSE developed eight classifications within the tool to identify patients in severe need. The most severe category is classified as “Critical”. These patients are declining in the disease process and are at risk of transitioning within 7-10 days. Care teams are prompted to provide additional care to these patients to increase the level of comfort for them as they manage care coordination. This includes registered nurses, social workers, chaplain services, hospice aides, volunteers and other therapies. Patients that are in a “critical’ risk category are also identified to evaluate the need for a higher level of care. This critical information signals care teams to begin the communication and bereavement benefit to families of the patient as well.
Patients who are deemed as “Extremely Low” have a lower likelihood to rapidly decline in their disease. These patients live longer than those classified at a higher risk level. This allows the agency to optimize care and provide services that are aligned with a clinically developed patient centric plan of care. This type of care may include telehealth and other services considered to help the patient.
MUSE’s classifications help teams manage their immediate priorities in a clear and effective manner. The entire team can coordinate and prioritize needs accordingly as they communicate with both patients and families of their patients’ conditions. Interested to learn more?
