IllumiCare’s Smart Ribbon ® empowers clinicians with real-time cost, opioid and critical data in focused views for expedited clinical decision making.

Over-utilization is both harmful to patients and wastes limited healthcare resources. IllumiCare provides a non-intrusive Smart Ribbon® of information that is embedded within or floats over the EMR and gives providers real-time data within the physician workflow. As a result, providers order fewer and less expensive tests and medications.

IllumiCare has been named one of the worlds top 100 startups. See more here

IllumiCare has been studied in both academic and community hospitals, comparing the behavior of providers with and without access to IllumiCare – of the same sub-specialties, in the same hospital and DRG-adjusted. Providers with IllumiCare, immediately after go-live, dropped their spend per admission by $170.

One Platform – Many Views

Step 1

The same Smart Ribbon can be displayed for all user types and patient locations, or you can create multiple variants for different user type and/or patient location contexts.

The first step is to determine the context in which each Smart Ribbon variant will display.

Any user types & Any patient location

Step 2

Apps can include information produced by IllumiCare, third parties or the health system, and will range from $1-$10 per inpatient admission.

The second step is to decide which apps to include in each Smart Ribbon variant.

Selected ribbon apps will be loaded on to your Smart Ribbon

Step 3

Changing Smart Ribbons or adding new ones is just a configuration change and does not require a new/re-implementation.

The last step is to publish the Smart Ribbon variant to the target population.

Customers and studies at both academic medical centers and community hospitals have shown that IllumiCare saves $170 per admission, a fraction of its cost.

At IllumiCare we see every order for tests and medications.  We know the ordering provider for every clinical order.  And, we know the wholesale cost of every clinical order.  This data allows us to accurately measure spend per provider (risk-adjusted) and track changes before and after go-live.

But, U. Penn demonstrated that just showing a cost during the ordering process is not enough to change behavior. They found, “Price transparency interventions may need to be better targeted, framed, or combined with other approaches to be more successful.” By unobtrusively framing costs, running totals and benchmarking with iatrogenic risks and specific clinical insights, IllumiCare produces real results without adding to provider alert fatigue.
