California hospital selects Thomson Reuters service to ID high-risk patients
Mercy Merced Medical Center in Merced, Calif., part of the Catholic Healthcare West system, will use the Clinical Xpert CareFocus solution from Thomson Reuters to rapidly identify high-risk patients within the active hospital census. 

CareFocus is an extension of the Clinical Xpert Navigator solution that gives clinicians access to patient clinical data via a smartphone in order to build clinical profiles to identify high-risk patients from the entire hospital census based on their medications, lab results, vital signs, diagnoses, observations, active orders and demographics, according to the Ann Arbor, Mich.-based Thomson.
