NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Nashville-based healthcare startup EvidenceCare, a clinical decision support tool for healthcare providers, announced today the release of its newest user experience and interface design, a project the company has been working on since the beginning of 2018.
EvidenceCare was conceived in 2014 to solve a fundamental need for healthcare providers to find and quickly digest the latest treatment guidelines. The company boasts that the new design brings a more provider-driven experience than ever to users along with integrated decision rules and calculators, a robust antibiotic advisor and a new feature that allows for order management.
Dr. Brian Fengler, founder and CEO of EvidenceCare, said the new user experience brings out the best in the tool.
“Every facet of EvidenceCare was designed with the clinician in mind. This phase of our design took that to a whole new level by integrating the things they have asked for most, like actionable care decisions and order sets,” said Fengler. “Our new interface and data model allows us to integrate with some of the most widely used EHR technologies so that we can seamlessly embed EvidenceCare in the provider’s workflow and show exceptional ROI for hospitals.”
In 2016, the company launched its technology and currently has a variety of protocols for emergency medicine, antibiotic stewardship, gastroenterology and more, with content accredited by the American College of Emergency Physicians and the American College of Gastroenterology for CME credit. In addition, the platform integrates a patient education tool that enhances the dialogue providers have with their patients and a feature that accelerates documentation into any EHR.
“The new user interface and experience have all of the same quality content we’ve always had, but delivered in a much easier-to-use format,” said Dr. David Sanders, EvidenceCare’s medical director. “We don’t want physicians to be forced to choose between maximum convenience and comprehensiveness. The new design provides both.”
“Providers today are forced by things like Meaningful Use to utilize clinical decision support within their workflow,” added Fengler. “The tools that were built for this didn’t consider how providers worked into that design. EvidenceCare checks the CDS requirement, but does so in a format that adds value to the provider in a tool that they love using.”
The newest version of the web-based tool is available for free at app.evidence.care.
