"EMD Smart Note" Solution
Meaningful access to the clinical information stored electronically in the EMR is vital for delivering efficient and cost effective patient care. All too often valuable information is entered and ends up as narrative text, limiting its usefulness for clinical decisions. Enhanced Medical Decisions (EMD) solves this problem. EMD's Smart Note provides innovative tools to maximize the information trapped in narrative documentation. Combining the power of EMD’s contextual natural language processing and decision support tools, the toolset provides unparalleled insight into the clinical knowledge locked in the EMR. Solutions include problem list management, diagnosis decision support, adverse drug reaction diagnosis, and other quality and safety capabilities driven by contextual natural language processing.

"EMD Smart Problem List" Solution
The Smart Problem List provides visualization of existing problems alongside potential new problems generated as clinical records are processed through the Smart Note engine. The engine contextually processes records to extract missed problems in the EMR. Overlooked problems are identified and automatically coded; while resolved and inactive problems are flagged to reduce problem list clutter. The result allows for efficient problem list management, fully integrated in the EMR.
Smart Problem List Features
  • Identifies missed problems and reconcile with existing problem list
  • Assigns codes to all problem list entries (SNOMED-CT, ICD-9-CM, ICD-10)
  • Organizes problems according to user preference (organ system or information type such as chief complaint)
  • Reduces problem list clutter by recognizing resolved and inactive problems/li>
  • Sorts/filters problems by caregiver type (nurse, PCP, specialist) or setting (IP vs OP)
  • References extracted problems/symptoms back to the original EMR text
  • Tracks problems by user, user type (MD, nurse, specialist) and date
"EMD Smart Meds" Solution
Smart Meds, EMD’s side effect decision support tool is designed to add adverse drug effects to the differential list and stimulate thinking about drug side effects when there is diagnostic doubt or question. Clinicians worldwide use Smart Meds to improve diagnostic accuracy of adverse drug effects and find the correct diagnosis earlier. Using the latest natural language search technologies, the EMD Smart Meds system can take a pattern of multiple drugs and symptoms and instantly compute most likely drug side effects from a vast professional side effect database. By complementing the clinician’s knowledge and expertise, and through access to evidence- based content, Smart Meds can rapidly assist in determining or confirming a diagnosis of a drug side effect and help answer the question “Could this be due to drugs?”. Using Smart Meds, or Double Check Drugs, a Smart Meds for patients, to minimize delay or misdiagnosis can impact downstream quality, safety, clinical, and financial outcomes.
