About Pegwin Patient Safety Innovation

Pegwin Patient Safety Innovation helps healthcare institutions solve post-operative patient complications by leveraging Machine Learning and AI technology to alert clinicians on early identification of patient abnormalities.

On top of the EMR we create a risk profile for each patient that shows their co-morbidities ranked by severity and pushes the best practice and standard of care to the attending clinician in real-time, augmenting their knowledge to take timely preventive action.

Pegwin is the winner of two (2) ONC for IT Patient Safety Challenges and is an evidence-based solution addressing volatility in the patient state, the uncertainty in decision making, and complexity and ambiguity of data related to patient safety. Pegwin Insights uses live data in real-time from pre-op to homecare, allowing for early detection of patient deterioration to eliminate potential preventable harm.

Problem statement

The third leading category of death globally, following cancer and heart disease, is mortality within 30-days of surgery. Nearly 1 in 4 hospitalized patients admitted to hospitals in the U.S. will experience harm. Despite decades of effort, U.S. hospitals still have a long way to go to improve patient safety.
Current systems, for monitoring post-operative patients, on surgical wards, are inadequate.
This results in higher costs, added liability, unreimbursed revenue, preventable patient harm and unnecessary loss of life. A recent study shows that 7% of total admissions experience preventable harm and 1% experienced serious preventable adverse events that resulted in serious harm or death.

Our data-driven tools will reduce the financial burden from adverse events.

Traction information

1. We have a signed We have design partner agreement with the #1 Cancer Center in the U.S. to conduct a feasibility and usability study of our Machine Learning and medical AI algorithm.
2. We have won 2 patient safety technology awards from the HHS Office of the National Coordinator for IT.
3. We have developed and tested the Pegwin Insights Platform prototype that agnostically sits on top of any Electronic Health Record (EHR) to display each patient's Risk Profile to support nurses to do the right thing, to the right patient at the right time. This will help to continue timely, quality care even with the nursing shortages.

We are listed on clinical trials.gov and have an IRB approval and DUA with UT Health and the Memorial Hermann Health System.
