ORLANDO, FL, February 19, 2017 -- Inferscience, provider of Clinical Decision Support solutions, will showcase innovative technology to improve the physician and patient experience at the point of care at the HIMSS17 Conference and Exhibition (Booth #7785). Conference attendees with have the opportunity to demo the Infera® advanced clinical decision support system.
Infera is a new type of clinical decision support system (CDSS) that seamlessly integrates with EHRs to provide clinicians with peer-reviewed clinical recommendations in real-time. It enables clinicians to view recommendations based on a patient’s current and historical data in the EHR workflow, as well as their symptoms at point of care. Evidence-based recommendations are delivered to the provider within seconds in the form of a detailed and referenced report.
Infera’s personalized recommendations and efficient report delivery contrast with other types of CDSS currently in use, which are largely condition-specific, and consist of reading lists of treatment guidelines and peer-reviewed articles that clinicians must then review and interpret, adding time and complexity to the workflow.
In addition to enhancing a clinician’s EHR experience and enabling them to utilize the latest in evidence-based medicine, Infera was designed to address the complex challenges and quality-related needs of group medical practices, hospitals and health systems by ensuring that:
- Clinicians are consistently practicing evidence-based medicine;
- Treatment planning is personalized, rather than generalized for a given condition;
- PCPs have critical insights that enable them to better manage patients, reducing costly and time-consuming specialist referrals; and
- Patient care meets critical (and ever-changing) quality criteria for reimbursement.
Infera is comprehensive, featuring more than 90 specialist-reviewed care pathways in types of medicine, including preventative medicine, cardiology, gastroenterology, endocrinology, pulmonology, neurology and urology. Inferscience’s team of specialists is continually working to add new pathways and enhance existing ones based on the latest information.
“As a physician, I have seen firsthand the need for clinical decision support tools, in addition to EHRs, to transform the doctors’ visit for both patients and physicians,” said Dr. Sunil Nihalani, CEO & Founder of Inferscience. “Our goal is to improve patient outcomes by providing physicians with timely and actionable recommendations at the point of care that are patient-specific. Infera gives physicians and health systems a comprehensive tool that can be easily integrated into their existing EHR systems. By giving clinicians consistent and credible information, we can improve efficiency by reducing unnecessary patient expenditures and offering an updated, single source for clinical best-practice information.”
Infera can be integrated with multiple EHR solutions. This integration makes it possible to easily pass patient data documented in the EHR into Infera, enhancing the clinical workflow and aids clinician adoption and utilization. Inferscience is a development partner with several EHR providers. Healthcare organizations using EHRs from Allscripts and athenahealth can quickly and easily add Infera through their application marketplaces. Inferscience is also working with other vendors, including Cerner, to integrate Infera into their platforms in Q1 2017.
Infera is a scalable SaaS solution which requires no hardware or software to install or maintain. Updates, including the addition of new care pathways, are made continually and automatically.
