Infera is an advanced clinical decision support system (CDSS) that seamlessly integrates with your EHR and the clinician work-flow. It provides clinicians with peer-reviewed, evidence-based, clinical recommendations in real-time by analyzing the patient’s EHR data. Infera is a HIPAA compliant and secure solution.
Unlike CDS solutions that provide reading lists of articles or clinical summaries, Infera actually helps clinicians practice medicine more efficiently and deliver better quality care.
How Infera Works
Infera is embedded within your EHR. When a clinician initiates Infera, it instantly the reads structured and unstructured data in the patient’s charts/record. This enables a truly comprehensive analysis of the patient chart. Recommendations are delivered within the EHR in the form of a fully referenced report.
Infera is a scalable solution, delivered as a service (SaaS) so there’s no hardware or software for you to install, maintain or update. Updates, including new care pathways, are made continually and automatically. Administrators and users receive notifications via Infera’s Message Board.
Organizations using EHRs from Allscripts and athenahealth can add Infera through their marketplaces/application stores. We work closely with organizations who are using other EHRs to plan and execute implementation.
Infera’s sophisticated evidence-based Clinical Rules Engine is the heart of the solution. Through structured (encoded) data-parsing using consolidated clinical document architecture (C-CDA), it analyzes data fields in the EHR. To care for clinical notes and non-data fields, Infera parses unstructured data using natural language processing. But we know that speed is an essential component of utility, and Infera’s Clinical Rules Engine is fast, returning recommendations in a matter of seconds.
