Cognitive Medical Systems ("Cognitive") was created to change the healthcare system in the US through innovative software solutions, platforms and tools. We specialize in standards-based software engineering solutions for organizations where real world experiences with healthcare standards, clinical workflow, decision support, and/or legacy system integration are needed for success. The Company has the following socio-economic set-aside designations: Service Disabled Veteran-Owned (SDVO), economically Disadvantaged Woman-Owned (EDWO), and Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB).
Our general business model is to use DoD/VA/HHS professional services contracts (custom software development and services) to fund the company's software products development. Today we have a broad platform in an area of healthcare IT called Clinical Decision Support (CDS). One of the most promising strategies available for improving the efficiency and effectiveness of health care is CDS, which entails providing clinicians, staff, patients or other individuals with knowledge and person-specific information, intelligently filtered or presented at appropriate times, to enhance health and health care. Our platform for CDS is called the Cognitive Decision Support Framework (CDSF). We are starting to build commercial products on top of CDSF and, ultimately, that will be our primary market (payors, provider networks, hospitals, clinics, ACOs, etc.).
We were recently ranked #95 on the Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing companies. San Diego Business Journal named us the fastest-growing private company in San Diego for 2015, as well as one of the Best Places to Work.
