Enhancing Care Management with Proactive Patient Surveillance


Care management and care transitions are at the center of value-based care strategies. To improve care coordination rounds, shift changes, and other care transition plans, providers are using the Rothman Index to guide important decisions and improve outcomes.

Focusing on proactive patient surveillance and early intervention, Shannon Medical Center, in San Angelo, TX, has decreased codes outside the ICU by 34% and reduced Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF)-to-hospital readmission rates to 10% below the national average.

The Rothman Index is the only clinical surveillance platform that derives one simple score from the vast amount of data in the electronic medical record to create a picture of any patient’s condition over time – any age, any disease, any unit.


  • Review the proactive surveillance process at Shannon Medical Center
  • Outline alert protocols and staff action steps to reduce code blue events outside the ICU
