BOSTON, April 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- QPID Health, a leader in clinical reasoning software, today announced it has been included in the "Cool Vendors" for Healthcare Providers report published by Gartner, Inc on April 3, 2015. QPID's innovative solutions help hospitals and medical groups optimize their investments in the information held within electronic health records to help improve patient outcomes and increase clinical satisfaction.
The "Cool Vendors" in the Healthcare Providers report spotlights vendors that present unique solutions in specific niches under the broad realm of transformation and change. This year's report points out, "Globally, healthcare is facing extreme transformation. Strategies to lower cost, increase quality and keep populations healthy dominate agendas and drive IT investments." QPID is proving with customers how its solutions are achieving these lofty goals and are being delivered not only at the population health level, but also down to the patient.
"To be selected by Gartner as a 'Cool Vendor' is an honor and we believe testament to the hard work our team is doing to help healthcare providers move beyond simply collecting data to driving a true 'return on information' from the vast amount of structured and unstructured data that is housed in their EHRs. QPID is committed to continually work with our hospital and clinical partners to improve patient safety, achieve better outcomes, drive increased revenue and to lower costs," said Mike Doyle, QPID Health President and CEO.
QPID is transforming clinical data sourced from EHRs and other repositories into actionable information for quality initiatives, registry fulfillment and clinical decisions. While EHRs have improved access to patient data, generating value from the information they hold still requires considerable effort including manual chart review. QPID changes that by automatically retrieving and assembling actionable information from patient records.

About QPID Health
QPID optimizes "return on information" from data stored in electronic health records, clinical data repositories, and health information exchanges. With QPID's clinical reasoning platform, hospitals and medical groups can prove compliance with quality measures, participate in registries, and identify cohorts for research or care management – using fewer resources and more accurately. By automatically mining all the information in a patient's record, QPID supports better utilization management and care decisions. Before QPID, expensive clinical resources conducting manual chart review were required to leverage insights from unstructured information such as notes, estimated to be 80% of a patient's record.
QPID was developed at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and usage spread virally throughout the Partners HealthCare system. There are over 7500 active QPID users at MGH, Brigham & Women's, Silver Hill, Spaulding, and Newton Wellesley, among other institutions. QPID Health launched in late 2012 to bring the power of QPID to health systems nationwide. Investors include Cardinal Partners, Matrix Partners, Massachusetts General Physicians Organization, New Leaf Venture Partners and Partners Innovation Fund.
