the Ohio Hospital Association (OHA), has offered its members access to software called Wayfinder developed by Healthcare Colloquium Inc., a subsidiary of Columbus, Ohio-based research nonprofit Battelle.

Wayfinder software uses records to compare an individual hospital’s performance against regional, state and national peers. It also uses predictive modeling to help hospitals identify the trajectory of issues such as a spike in falls.
