We Solve EHR Problems—For You

 

your eHr should support you

We get it. Most EHRs create caregiver friction—and we’re doing something about it. We make your EHR function – the way it should. Without interfaces, without external applications, without downtime, without waiting for the next manufacturer upgrade cycle.

EHRs lack the features needed to get clinical work done in the hospital. Care providers need better workflow-embedded tools. Emailing patient lists to each other, copy-and-pasting—and risking HIPAA violations by texting patient updates must stop. We fix that for you.

As Deborah Abram, MD at Baptist Health put it, “CORES makes our processes more effective, and saves us at least an hour and half per day, per resident.”

Truth be told, getting your EHR to “serve you” is damn hard. That’s why no one has done it before. It takes a unique ability to think large, unravel complexity and understand how providers work. And to ensure IT simplicity—solve the problem without interfaces.

Roots

As a new physician, TransformativeMed Co-founder and Chief Innovation Officer Dr. Erik van Eaton was frustrated by the millions spent on his EHR and the little it did to solve the care breakdowns due to poor handoff communication. Refusing to accept the status quo, he invented CORES, taking the first step to unlock the EHR’s full potential.

CORES is embedded in Cerner MPages making it 100% interface-free, seamlessly integrating into EHR workflows. With the addition of machine learning, mobile and soon voice recognition, we help transform your EHR into a modern tool that adapts to the way you practice medicine.
