HealthSense is currently in production use at WRI and the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, where it is used in support of the breast cancer research program.
HealthSense, an extension of the InforSense KDE (K Desktop Environment) A GUI-based user interface primarily for Unix and Linux machines, but also available for Windows and Mac. The source code is freely distributed and is maintained by developers around the world. integrative analytics platform, is optimized for clinical data management and analysis, allowing study both at the population and individual patient level. The platform supports relevant clinical data types, and offers an extensive range of analytic methods and intuitive viewers that target the needs of those involved in clinical research. In addition, HealthSense provides a way to intuitively deliver this knowledge to the physician to support treatment decisions.
"It is increasingly recognized by clinicians that leveraging the wealth of information coming from clinical practice, including clinical research, can support better decision-making in patient care," said Dr. Michael Liebman, Director of the Windber Research Institute. "We are proud of the results of our collaboration with InforSense in producing HealthSense, which provides the needed efficient analysis and interpretation of healthcare data."
"InforSense HealthSense is a natural extension of our KDE platform, which is a key technology supporting Life Sciences Research globally," said Dr. Jonathan Sheldon, Chief Scientific Officer of InforSense. "We have now partnered with WRI to release the first analytics platform that supports the entire R&D process from biological target to marketable drug."
InforSense HealthSense provides access to a wide range of analytic components and laboratory data, including gene expression and genetics. Any of the components can be accessed via InforSense workflows to create analytical processes, which are then deployed to the portal for the use at the point of care by the physician.
Witness how the Clinician's Portal is used by clinicians and researchers at WRI: Michael Liebman and Jonathan Sheldon present "Translational Medicine translational medicine Molecular medicine The constellation of activities which seek to translate the science of gene discovery, gene transfer, and functional genomics into gene-targeted therapies from Basic Research to Enabled Communications" at the HIMMS conference in New Orleans, Louisiana on Monday, February 26, 2007 from 12:30 - 1:30pm. InforSense is also demonstrating HealthSense at HIMMS Booth 2668.
About InforSense KDE
Using InforSense KDE, enterprises rapidly integrate and deliver virtually any data source, analytic software tool, service or application within a single informatics framework.
