Our applications integrate seamlessly into Cerner’s PowerChart — no signing in and out of different programs, no toggling between systems, no hassle — in order to:

  • Enable the Health System to optimize its electronic medical record return on investment

T4M Beginnings

As a surgical resident at the University of Washington, T4M co-founder Erik Van Eaton often found himself combing the electronic medical record for the clinical data he needed to care for his patients. The data was there but it was difficult to locate and difficult to assemble into a coherent patient story. Erik spent hours each day searching for and recopying data and yet it never seemed to be enough time. As Erik shared his frustration with his colleagues, he discovered that he wasn’t alone. Erik was now determined to fix this problem and as a trained medical informaticist, he was in a position to do so.

Erik invented CORES, a web-based software application initially designed to streamline resident workflow. CORES was wildly popular and no wonder. Studies showed that CORES halved the time spent copying basic data from the chart, decreased the number of patients missed during resident rounds and shortened overall rounds by several minutes. Other clinicians took notice and began to adopt CORES to improve their own processes. Since its humble origins, CORES has been expanded to not only streamline patient rounds but also improve handoffs and care coordination for multi-disciplinary teams at several of the most prominent Health Systems in the country.
