Midas+ Care Management includes integrated discipline-specific Case Management, Quality Management,
Risk Management, and Infection Control subsystems. Hospital and Community Case Management supports the
patient throughput process with authorization, certification, concurrent review, clinical documentation
improvement, and discharge planning. All while automating the referral process and reducing denied and
avoidable days, lengths of stay (LOS) and readmissions. Quality Management provides convenient ways of
tracking incidents specific to the quality and appropriateness of physician care including tracking of
peer review activities and outcome significance. Additional functions supported by this subsystem
include blood and drug usage evaluation, medical records quality assurance, and various other quality
improvement activities. Risk Management supplies the tools needed to electronically submit adverse
events, automate the referral process, and analyze your data to identify emerging patterns and issues
of concern for both Risk incidents and Patient compliments and complaints. The Infection Control
subsystem provides Infection Preventionists with easy-to-manage surveillance, data analysis and reporting features.
"The University of Maryland Medical System implemented Midas+ in March, 1998. The Division of Clinical Quality Systems has been able to integrate work processes within and among a variety of departments and has had a tremendous impact on our productivity. With the MIDAS+ system, we were able to increase the number of quality reviews per day from 25 to 54 without adding additional staff!"
