IC Sciences Deepens Commitment to Pioneer Digital Informatics Instruments through New Medical Division

BOSTON, April 9, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- IC Sciences Corporation announced today the establishment of a new corporate division, the Division of Medical Information Sciences (DMIS), dedicated to scientific and technical innovations in the design and development of the burgeoning field of "digital informatics instruments." In addition to reflecting a corporate commitment to a new generation of informatics-grounded healthcare delivery, the Division's mandate also involves establishing the parameters, methods, and disciplines needed to ensure the safety and effectiveness of these instruments.

The Division's Executive Director, L. Eleanor J. Herriman, MD, MBA, who also serves as Executive Vice President and Chief Science Officer of IC Sciences Corp, remarked, "Having canvassed the scientific literature, attended the leading healthcare informatics conferences, and heard from all market and policy sectors in healthcare, we have concluded that medical practice and the healthcare marketplace are in the midst of an unprecedented transformation. This shift is being sparked by the Internet and associated advances in medical informatics. The leadership of IC Sciences and its advisors are convinced that the success of care delivery heavily depends on the clinical potency and quality of the informatics tools available to clinicians, patients, and consumers."

DMIS envisions collaborations with a range of scientific, business, and clinical leaders to devise design principles, tools, meta-data frameworks, and assessment methodologies to answer the question "How can informatics systems most effectively advance care delivery?" The healthcare information technologies involved in next generation healthcare are viewed through the framework of a range of informatics instrument classes, such as care delivery instruments, cognitive profiling instruments, collective intelligence instruments, therapeutic support instruments, and evaluation instruments.

The foundation for these medical instrument classes is constructed from IC Sciences' research into a variety of multi-disciplinary sciences. The findings are distilled into a set of DMIS principles that articulate critical elements of instrument functionality:

-- Distributed evidence - to support the next epoch in healthcare

evidence, instruments should enable real world, bottom-up capture and

synthesis of patient-, clinician-, and computer-generated data.

-- Cognitive potency - instruments should embody cognitive science's

knowledge regarding how information assembly, packaging, and delivery

in interactions with patients and clinicians impacts healthcare

decisions and behavior.

-- Complexity informatics - given that healthcare represents a highly

uncertain, dynamic, and interconnected system, instrument designs

should assimilate complex adaptive systems approaches.

-- Internet-assisted intelligence - healthcare's evidence base and

complexity have exceeded the capacities of unaided human intelligence;

Internet instruments' computing power can play a vital role providing

intelligence advisory services to patients and clinicians.

The Division produces a series of research reports, the Medical Informatics Review, describing how the cognitive, complexity, and informatics sciences can be used in practice in a variety of indications such as patient- physician partnering, patient medication adherence, and generating real world clinical evidence for performance management and personalized medicine.
