There is an information bottleneck that impacts all of healthcare.
Clinicians are having to enter and request information inefficiently.
Currently, there is no approach for a clinician to validate and log a clinical procedure contemporaneously.
Documentation must be done after the fact and can take hours per day.
Clear Protocol® was specially designed to be used at the point of care, hands-free, in a practical way.
Users can select a procedure and validate it in real time.
Completed protocols are logged automatically.
In Use Today
Currently, the most effective solutions to avoid medical errors utilize a checklist, and then record the verification by manual data entry. But they share two limitations: (1) they are not integrated into the clinical care delivery, and therefore cause interruptions in workflow to manually enter data; and (2) they are not practical to implement permanently throughout a hospital.
We are the first comprehensive patented solution that:
1. operates hands-free,
2. gives clinicians bedside access to the EHR, Rx and CPOE systems,
3. enables clinicians to validate and log clinical practice protocols (checklists) continuously and unobtrusively,
4. accepts any checklist used in health organizations.
Our solution leveraged existing, mature technology – voice recognition – already in use in 90% of hospitals and embedded in the leading EHR systems: Epic, Cerner, Allscripts, and MEDITECH.
The solution is Clear Protocol®, a patented software system that uses electronic wearables, is hands-free, and voice operated.
