Today, as healthcare delivery organizations continue to consolidate and expand to become larger medical practices, they face a constantly growing volume of unstructured and structured healthcare information. Obtaining knowledge about ‘who knows what’ or ‘who knows who’ has become increasingly challenging. Auminence World allows healthcare professionals to overcome these organizational and geographic barriers in order to automatically identify specialists and ‘connect the dots’ among related medical information. Healthcare professionals can connect with experts within their own organizations and other HDOs using Auminence World if they so choose.
Powerful Expertise Location
Unlike traditional approaches that rely on manually created biography databases for expertise location, Auminence World leverages IDOL’s ability to automatically build conceptual profiles of users based on understanding of information. As healthcare professionals interact with Auminence, Auminence World automatically builds and expands upon their user profile in real time. As a result, Auminence World can identify specialists and experts within the healthcare delivery organization and connect them to conceptually related professionals as well as specific patient cases.
For example, suppose a cardiologist in large medical practice has a pregnant patient with mitral stenosis, a form of heart disease. The doctor is debating between treating her medically or surgically, and needs to consult with both obstetric and neonatal professionals who have worked on similar cases. Using Auminence World, he is quickly able to locate colleagues with the most relevant experience as well as related research – and rapidly pull together the best team of specialists to treat his patient.
Auminence World provides out-of-the-box connectivity to widely-used, current medical research. Healthcare professionals can access conceptually related information to both their own work and their patient cases from one single intuitive window.
Auminence World is a module of Autonomy Auminence, a powerful point-of-care analysis dashboard designed to help the provider make better quality, data-driven, evidence-based diagnosis decisions. Auminence allows a healthcare professional to combine their personal knowledge with the wealth of knowledge that exists on the patient and their symptoms, clinical features, and related diseases – providing a checklist of suggested diagnoses based on a wide range of variables including clinical features, gender, and location. It integrates securely with electronic health records and existing medical infrastructures, and audits each session. A cloud-based offering, Auminence is instantly accessible from mobile devices, tablets, and desktops.
Auminence World includes the following capabilities
- Fast, real-time, and reliable identification of medical experts with conceptually similar research and specialties to the user and individual patient cases
- Results organized by patient care team (doctors and nurses) or community (doctors, nurses, and students)
- Communication tools for immediate access to identified experts
- Visual analysis and automatic hyperlinking to conceptually and contextually related diagnoses
- Out-of-the-box connectivity to external research, including the British Medical Journal papers
- Conceptually recognize diagnoses, research, and people
