|Description||EHR/Healthcare Technology Communities|
Cientis Technologies is an international developer of web-based tools and apps to assist clinicians and their medical practice teams achieve optimal use of healthcare technologies. Cientis’ online communities, AmericanEHR.com and CanadianEMR.ca are free online resources designed to aid with the selection, implementation, and effective use of electronic health records (EHRs) and other health information technology.
Cientis also provides clinicians, healthcare consultants, policy makers, pharma and technology professionals with syndicated research, surveys, and key insights surrounding user satisfaction and market shares for health technology products and services.
Our competitive advantage is our extensive relationships within the medical community, including the founding partner of AmericanEHR, the American College of Physicians (ACP). In total Cientis has partnered with 22 medical associations to date, including the American Medical Association (AMA), the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) and the American College of Surgeons (ACS), who collectively represent more than 720,000 licensed clinicians. Cientis has also partnered with content providers HIMSS, HL7, and AHIMA.
We verify physician credentials in realtime against the AMA Masterfile, or our other partner association databases to provide the highest level of confidence on all survey data we collect.
As of September 2013 AmericanEHR.com had approximately 22,000 members and CanadianEMR.ca had approximately 4,000 members.
Cientis’ first iOS mobile app, The Immunization Advisor App was developed in support of the ACP Adult Immunization Initiative and was downloaded by 16,700 clinicians from March 2012 to January 2013. This app was made possible by unrestricted educational grants from Sanofi Pasteur, Merck Vaccines, and Pfizer, Inc.
