Cogon Systems, a healthcare solutions provider, has been awarded a research, development, test and evaluation contract by the US Army’s Telemedicine & Advanced Technology Research Center to develop advanced clinical decision support tools for hand held computer use.
The primary goal of the project is to determine if using mobile technology in an inpatient setting to deliver clinical decision support through rapid retrieval of clinical data, intelligently filtered clinical knowledge, and appropriately generated alerts and reminders, will positively impact patient care while concurrently achieving physician’s acceptance, efficiency and education.
The project will rely upon technology provided by Cogon Systems Mobile MOMENT OF CARE software application. Cogon’s product leverages data already residing within a hospital’s inpatient information system thus preserving existing infrastructure investments and will serve as the foundation to which advanced clinical decision support modules will be appended. The project’s overarching objective is applicable to all medical treatment facility or combat support hospitals.
