Noffsinger, who joined San Diego-based SafeMed in December, formerly headed Microsoft Corp.’s health care division. He then served as president and COO of physician software vendor Amicore Inc., which Microsoft founded in 2001 with IBM Corp. and Pfizer Inc."
The company’s flagship product, introduced in 2007, is the SafeMed Analysis Engine. It combines reference content from multiple sources with patient-specific data from electronic health records, insurer information systems and PHRs to provide real-time decision support to clinicians and patients.
A drug prescription, for instance, can be checked for appropriateness against a patient’s weight, sex, age, allergies and interactions with other drugs the patient is taking. The software can even check for such details as whether the patient has only one functioning kidney. Prescriptions also can be checked against the patient’s drug formulary, co-pay and dosage guidelines.
One early SafeMed client, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, uses the decision support engine to help clinicians identify appropriate diagnostic imaging tests. Other clients include Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Massachusetts and electronic health records vendors 4Medica, eClinicalWorks, MDTablet, Medi-EMR, Medsphere, Misys, NextGen and SSIMED.
