CareEngine

CareEngine

We're proud to say that 10 years of development has yielded a clinical decision support system unlike anything else in the industry. CareEngine, our advanced CDS technology, continuously absorbs patient data, assesses it against current evidence-based clinical standards, and transforms it into actionable intelligence.

Using a sophisticated clinical logic that integrates highly specific patient data, CareEngine is able to create a detailed patient profile – one that identifies opportunities to improve care and delivers relevant, real-time, actionable alerts, which we call Care Considerations.

And we won't inundate you with annoying or irrelevant alerts. We hate them as much as you do. CareEngine is designed to avoid the generation of "false positive" alerts. And you have the option to turn them off any time you want. But before you do, consider this:

  • A comparison of Care Considerations against information
    in patient charts yielded a clinical accuracy rate of 98%.1
  • Two randomized clinical trials published in peer-reviewed
    journals demonstrated the meaningful quality and
    economic value of CareEngine.2,3

In short, CareEngine is designed to foster outcomes that lead to better patient care and support performance-driven payment.
