IC Sciences Investigates Application of Narrative Sciences for Medical Informatics Instruments
Date:4/16/2008

BOSTON, April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- IC Sciences Corporation announced today a new initiative that explores narrative techniques for designing and developing informatics instruments used in medical practice and healthcare 2.0 markets.

In keeping with the Company's strategy to develop a new, more potent generation of digital informatics instruments, narrative science complements the repertoire of cognitive, complexity, and informatics disciplines being applied for this purpose. IC Sciences is collaborating with leaders in the industry to synthesize these sciences into an integrated system for investigating, designing, constructing, testing, and deploying healthcare informatics interventions.

The Company's latest scientific brief, "Narrative Techniques in Medicine: Translating Cognitive Sciences into Potent Informatics Instruments," explains the importance and relevance of narrative, citing "[Narrative techniques] are powerful tools for understanding patients' thinking and thus optimally engaging them, which can contribute to improved outcomes.
