Title: Semantic Web, Computable Documents and Healthcare IT



Company Bio: Cognitive was created to empower people to make informed healthcare decisions through the use of innovative software solutions. We’re three years old, based in San Diego, have twenty employees, are bootstrapped, are cash flow positive and we’re profitable. Our customers today are the Department of Defense, Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Health and Human Services and two commercial customers.

Cognitive specializes in an area called clinical decision support. Clinical decision support is technology to provide information for doctors, nurses and patients, at the point of care that is contextually relevant to the care setting and the patient’s entire healthcare record. Cognitive’s competitive advantages are in providing “real-time” clinical decision support that helps to simplify the complex clinical workflows that define modern healthcare.

Our first product is a mobile clinical quality data capture and analysis tool it is in use today in the Perinatal Quality Collaborative of North Carolina (PQCNC). PQCNC is a quality improvement consortium, started in North Carolina, of 160 neonatal ICUs across the US. This product allows doctors and nurses to capture clinical quality data at the point of care quickly and efficiently using an Android or Apple mobile device. The data is then sent to Cognitive’s clinical decision support platform in the Amazon Cloud that analyzes the data in real-time and provides actionable advice to the clinical care staff at the bedside. Further, this product and platform allow for reporting and analysis of the data which can then be added to the electronic healthcare record, be analyzed for population health, and be used to track quality improvement metrics and initiatives. This platform saves the clinical care staff valuable time that they would normally spend hand entering and analyzing the quality data onto paper-based forms.

Our ultimate goal is to have a range of products that plug into the major electronic healthcare record systems, which will help to increase healthcare outcomes and decrease healthcare costs.
