How it works

Logic structure for representing any clinical protocol

Wellframe has developed a proprietary approach to representing clinical protocols as logic structures to direct computer systems at scale and across clinical verticals. We have used this approach to encode evidence based standards such that they can be delivered as adaptive clinical programs on the Wellframe system. We can also model and encode local best practice to realize the local instantiation and delivery of evidence-based medicine.

Clinically proven mobile and tablet interface for engaging patients

Wellframe delivers care protocols to patients in the simplest possible unit that achieves clinical-quality resolution: a dynamically generated, personalized daily health checklist. We deliver this in a compelling, beautiful mobile experience available on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets in any language. Our mobile platform also features a secure 2-way communication channel to connect patients with care providers, a semantically organized corpus of multimedia medical information and a private social network where a patient's progress with their care plan can be shared and social support evoked based on user permissions.

HIPAA compliant cloud-hosted data collection & artificial intelligence environment

Wellframe offers a mobile data collection system that is trusted by pre-eminent health systems, cloud-hosted and scalable to any number of users. Wellframe's artificial intelligence engine for health state modeling, prediction and dynamic clinical protocol optimization uses data from a patient's interaction with the care plans to optimize the system.

Cloud-hosted EMR for care management with optional integration into third party systems

Wellframe has developed a lightweight cloud-hosted care management EMR that has been successfully integrated into clinical workflows. We are also able to integrate our software with third party systems such as other EMRs or care management systems based on customer needs.
