DURHAM –TherapyEdge Inc., a developer of point-of-care decision support software for individualized patient care, has been selected by the government of Nigeria for its Web-based decision support technology to advance the quality of care among Nigerians living with HIV/AIDS.
TherapyEdge HIV enables healthcare providers treating HIV/AIDS patients to effectively manage the massive amount of available information on HIV treatment and deliver effective, individualized therapies in a cost-effective, time-efficient manner, the company says. The system graphically tracks and automatically processes a patient’s clinical data through a knowledge base of pharmacological and clinical information created and maintained in collaboration with HIV clinicians and researchers.
TherapyEdge HIV also will provide guidance on managing tuberculosis, malaria and other opportunistic infections and co-morbid diseases, the company says.
The system will further facilitate training at the community-level, appropriate patient selection, drug distribution and centralized monitoring of healthcare decisions and patient outcomes. TherapyEdge will work closely with the Ministry of Health to implement the system in hospitals and clinics throughout Nigeria, it says.
TherapyEdge HIV will be demonstrated at the XIV International AIDS Conference in Barcelona, Spain through July 12.
Based in Durham, TherapyEdge is a medical information services company that uses patented technology to create products for both clinicians and healthcare companies. TherapyEdge says it combines advanced artificial intelligence with clinical evidence and expert human knowledge to produce decision support software for individualized patient care.
