LEGO uses LogicNets to capture a wide range of expert processes and then guide all employees interactively so that “each engineer is as good as the best”. The company is constantly designing new elements. However, it is critical that these elements retain a critical level of quality and compatibility with LEGO manufacturing and design standards. The LogicNets application created by LEGO ensures that staff have dynamic and interactive access to all protocols.Lego
The UCSF Diabetes Research Center is a leading authority on the proper preparation of diabetes patients for surgery. Diabetes patients cannot simply refrain from eating prior to an operation and require very specific guidelines for how to adjust their food and medicine intake as they prepare for surgery. It took UCSF over a year to develop a complex series of protocols that could provide guidance for virtually every diabetes patient scenario. The team was able to model and test these protocols into LogicNets decision trees and deploy their application for online use in less than 10 days. UCSF believes that this application can provide great benefits to hospitals and practitioners and has licensed LOGICNETS to resell its turn-key application so that other organizations can access reliable and current advice for their own organizations.University of California San Francisco Medical Center
UpToDate has used LogicNets as the underlying platform on which to build and deliver its next generation online clinical guidance system – Pathways.

Physicians can interactively navigate diagnostic and treatment pathways for a wide range of medical conditions, gaining critical and up-to-date guidance and immediate access to related reference information and evidence.UpToDate
PALGA is the national pathology foundation of the Netherlands. It is empowered by the Dutch national health system to provide a mandatory synoptic reporting application that is used by all pathologists in the country working out of 56 regional pathology labs. The LogicNets application uses PALGA-modeled decisioning to enable pathologists to most efficiently capture critical reporting information and ensuring accurate and complete report submissions. The result of deploying LOGICNETS has not only led to high user satisfaction ratings from the pathologists and an increase in the quality of the reporting, but has greatly improved the ability of the foundation to enable pathology research.
A new article in the May 2019 Journal of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) shows clear evidence of improved patient outcomes and survival as a direct result of using Standardized Structured Reporting (SSR) (AKA “Synoptic Reporting”). The research looked at over 70 thousand colorectal cancer cases in the Netherlands of which one third had been processed using SSR. All SSR in the Netherlands is implemented through nationwide use of the LogicNets platform by our customer PALGA. The study traced SSR-supported cases along with reference and the use of alternative “narrative reporting” processes to corresponding patient outcome records in the two largest Dutch registries — the NKR (Dutch Cancer Registration) and the DRCA (Dutch ColoRectal Audit).
The study credits the measurable increase in completeness and accuracy of SSR-acquired patient data to significant improvements in the administration of adjuvant therapy and survival rates for those patients. Read the article here.PALGA
SHM has used LogicNets as its platform to create a robust end-to-end workflow for nationwide monitoring and assistance of all patients in the Netherlands known to have HIV. Their LogicNets platform manages and tracks patients and staff members, identifying roles and responsibilities and sequencing interactive guidance through protocols into a sophisticated and long-term structured process. Staff members access the system from all over the country on their devices to determine the patients and patient cases they need to interact with and manage. Within the system, they activate guided processes to properly collect information in a timely and complete manner and the system dynamically process these inputs, generating reports, priority action items, and organizing the data so that it can be used for large-scale population health studies.SHM
ProRail – the Dutch national railway system – uses LogicNets to integrate and coordinate the planning, implementation, and reporting activities around nation-wide rail maintenance across the full range of its thousands of employees. The staff who plan rail maintenance activities use a graphical interface built in LogicNets to visualize the track system and perform dynamic what-if analyses on various maintenance activities by selecting sections of track to be put into a maintenance cycle and having the system compute resulting scenarios. The application uses ProRail’s own business rules, maintained by a team of over 20 engineers and operators. The ProRail application is a tribute to the level of sophistication that LogicNets applications can manage. Scheduled maintenance activities need to be structured to minimize impact on normal train operations, tested against many safety rules and approved as part of a consolidated workflow by numerous parties. Furthermore, ProRail scheduling rules naturally change frequently and, with LogicNets, ProRail’s own staff and contractors can dynamically update and deploy new rules in the application independently of the application development cycle.
The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) uses LogicNets as a business process engine to automate the intelligent calculation and review of filing fees for its well-known EDGAR system – the public application used nationally for organizations to formally submit all public securities transactions. There are an extensive set of business rules that SEC maintains and can periodically adjust in LogicNets in order to determine what is owed, enable a structured review process, and to accurately maintain account balances in its downstream financial systems. LogicNets is tightly integrated with the Momentum Financials system from CGI used by the SEC and serves as both the intermediary for real-time processing and the environment where payment rules can be managed.SEC
