LOS ANGELES, Aug. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Zynx Health™, a market leader in providing evidence- and experience-based clinical improvement solutions since 1996, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued US Patent 9,996,670 related to systems and methods for performing analytics, and in particular, on performing analytics on content, such as medical clinical decision support content. The technology is an integral component of Knowledge Analyzer™, Zynx Health's content management solution.
The patent covers a method of using supervised machine learning to identify the deficiencies and consistency of clinical content and guidelines. By validating CDS against current medical evidence, guidelines and performance measures, Knowledge Analyzer helps organizations reduce variation and improve outcomes.
"We appreciate the hard work of the Zynx data scientists who developed the algorithms and the clinical informatic teams who developed the training datasets, which today are helping healthcare systems standardize care and enhance patient outcomes," Jim Connolly, senior vice president of product and technology for Zynx Health. "Zynx remains committed to developing and delivering innovative solutions that reduce complexities for healthcare organizations and drive optimal clinical and financial performance."
Knowledge Analyzer is a revolutionary content management solution that enables clients to control and validate their content (e.g., order sets, care plans, policies) that resides within their EHR libraries and catalogs, to identify and close clinical gaps, create rules and alerts via checklists, maintain a single source of truth, avoid duplicate work, and prevent errors–all without requiring a system build or integration.
Zynx Health will be showcasing Knowledge Analyzer and other product offerings at the August 27-30 Epic Users Group Meeting in Verona, WI.
