The Rome Foundation and LogicNets Team up to Create Interactive Clinical Decision Toolkit

Rome IV Resources for FGID Diagnosis and Treatment to be Available in Online Platform RALEIGH, NC and WASHINGTON, May 20, 2016 – The Rome Foundation, in collaboration with LogicNets, has created the Rome IV Interactive Clinical Decision Toolkit. This new intelligent software system addresses the sophistication and complexity of FGID diagnosis and treatment protocols by providing an online resource to assist practitioners in achieving optimal clinical outcomes. It offers a powerful online and interactive approach for accessing the combination of the Rome IV Diagnostic Algorithms and the MDCP treatment guidelines on-demand and at the point of care. The Rome Foundation and LogicNets will be jointly previewing the Rome IV Interactive Clinical Decision Toolkit at the Rome Foundation booth (#4525) at Digestive Disease Week (DDW) in San Diego California, May 21-25, 2016. The new online system, designed to interactively deliver advanced Rome knowledge to physicians and clinicians via any browser based device will be released during the early 3rd quarter of 2016. “In partnering with LogicNets, we have developed an interactive platform for our Rome IV educational materials,” commented Dr. Douglas Drossman, President of The Rome Foundation. “By combining and integrating both the diagnostic and treatment decision making tools, this system approximates how clinicians think through the complex challenges of working with their patients having FGIDs. It will enhance the value of our books and other educational resources by adding a tool that is more proximate to the way good expert clinicians think.” “Rome Foundation is recognized as providing global standards of excellence for understanding and treating FGIDs. We could not ask for a better content partner to demonstrate the value... read more

G2 Speech and LogicNets Announce Strategic Partnership for Clinical Structured Reporting

WASHINGTON D.C., April 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — G2 Speech, a leading provider of speech recognition and workflow management solutions with operations in the UK and Benelux, and LogicNets, the Washington D.C.-based developer of the LogicNets decision support platform, are pleased to announce the formation of a new strategic partnership. The two organizations plan to jointly develop and release to the European and North American markets later this year a clinical workflow management solution with embedded clinical decision support (CDS).  G2 Speech’s innovative workflow platform, SpeechReport, which uses the Recognosco SDK, will now be significantly enhanced to include decision-based, structured reporting – technology provided by LogicNets. With this new offering, medical professionals can dictate their observations directly into a dynamic, rules-based report template which is integrated into the EPR/PACS/RIS workflow and accurately captures clinical data input, and processes it for downstream workflow and analytics.

Rome Foundation and LOGICNETS form Strategic Partnership to Deliver Online Decision Support for Leading Gastroenterology Diagnostic and Treatment Protocols

Advanced Decision Support Platform targeted for Rome MDCP II   RALEIGH, N.C. and WASHINGTON, April 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Rome Foundation, the pre-eminent global source for protocols to diagnose and treat functional gastroenterology disorders (FGIDs), and LogicNets, the developer of the LogicNets decision support automation platform, announced TODAY the formation of a new strategic partnership. The two organizations plan to jointly develop and make available to clinicians and practitioners worldwide an advanced online decision support system for Rome’s next generation multi-dimensional clinical profiles (MDCP) protocols. The LogicNets platform’s visual modeling capability is expected to greatly improve the ability of Rome members – who are leading experts in the field of Gastroenterology – to capture their expertise so that it can be shared through an online interactive system with a worldwide medical community. It is also expected to enhance the ability of practitioners around the world to successfully access Rome expertise, diagnose and treat patients, increase their own knowledge and credentials, and contribute to outcomes-based learning facilitated by the planned system. Practitioners treating FGIDs have relied on “the Rome Criteria” for over 20 years to properly diagnose FGIDs. During that period, the Rome Algorithms have been available in traditional and online publications including dedicated issues of the American Journal of Gastroenterology. However, as knowledge in the field has progressed, Rome has recognized the need to employ a new multi-dimensional model to capture the full dimensionality of the patient’s illness in order to better target the treatment. This involves the need to integrate not only the Rome diagnosis, but also the psychological, physiological, quality of life and other factors that contribute to... read more
