Los Angeles, February 17, 2015 – In supportof its recent study, “Imperatives for Managing Heart Failure in the Acute Care Setting,” The Advisory Board Company has launched an online Heart Failure Toolkit featuring a unique Heart Failure Vital Intervention Checklist from Zynx
™, the market leader in providing evidence- and experience-based clinicalimprovement solutions.

The Heart Failure Toolkit and Vital InterventionChecklist are expected to achieve the following goals:

  •        Supplement research study results with a toolto help Advisory Board Company members reduce heart failure care variation in the acute setting
  •        Help acute care physician leaders understandthe value of Zynx Health’s evidence-based interventions as these individuals inform opportunities to focus care delivery on the items that impact outcomes, best practices, and national clinical guidelines

As a result of this toolkit and checklist, physicianleaders should be able to evaluate and identify gaps in their current practices and standards of care.  The VitalIntervention Checklists are a component of Zynx Health’s innovative Knowledge Analyzer solution, an online, cloud-based application used by healthcare organizations to increase the impact and effectiveness of their usage of clinical decision support content.  Theapplication enables users to take existing clinical content from their electronic health record system and quickly compare it against the latest evidence-based Vital Interventions to ensure that their clinical practices are current.

“Many leading healthcare organizations have incorporatedevidence-based guidelines into their workflow. Once this content is in place, the information can become outdated, as organizations may lack time and resources to stay on top of updates and maintenance,” noted Carol Leighton, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at ZynxHealth. “Our clients use the Knowledge Analyzer tool to quickly compare the clinical content within electronic health systems against the latest evidence. The tool also helps healthcare organizations to pinpoint and prioritize changes, ensure that their investment is maximized, and save time.”

The Heart FailureToolkit is available on to members of the Physician Executive Council, an Advisory Board Research and Insights program that serves chief medical officer teams. More information about the Knowledge Analyzer tool can be found at
