Research & Development of patient centric EHR to make life easier

Our Mission

Total Quality Management (TQM) and Business Process Reengineering encouraged businesses to look at their processes holistically. Now that TQM and disease management programs are used by politicians and economists in health care to solve financal problems, it has become necessary to look also at patient centric  ways. Our mission is to assist patients in terms of complexity decentralized managed care processes. We are focused on research and development of patient centric documentation and assisted care implementing standards like OpenEHR. We promote the development of an independent (non proprietary), interdisciplinary framework of a patient centric documentation and process managment tool for integrated care.

Managed Care

A process of treatment and care may become complex and multicentric. There are a lot of medical and social resources involved with many different roles. Diseases like cancer require permanent processes of diagnostic, treatment and care procedures while maintaining but also improving the clinical pathways with procedures and techniques embodied in it. Crucially, any improvements identified while performing today’s standards should be incorporated in the ongoing process to let patients participate of them.

Our consultancy and data mining services are used to improve quality of care, e.g. by analysing outcomes of CTX therapies.
