Prognostogram Informatics Consult

The Prognostogram digital consult allows providers to quickly receive real-world evidence from millions of past patient encounters to guide care for their patients.

How It Works

Video Introduction

Physician Workflow for Ordering a Prognostogram


1.  Physicians simply submit their well-structured clinical questions (ideally using the PICOT format) in the standard order entry screen and we do the rest.

2.  Our trained clinical informatics team receive the questions and translate them into our proprietary search engine, ACE, for rapid cohort generation and comparative analysis.

3.  Our clinical team reviews the automatically generated analysis, and summarizes outputs in 2-3 sentences. The final report is a 5-6 page document that lands in the ordering physician's EHR inbox

Types of Questions We Answer

Prognosis - What is the likelihood of a patient having a specified outcome given specific clinical characteristics?

Treatment- What is the likely effectiveness of an intervention on a specified outcome given patient characteristics?  

Diagnosis -  What is the likelihood of a given medical condition given patient characteristics?

Prior Authorization -  Given the patient presentation should this drug be covered by insurance?

Clinical Trials -  Given the patient presentation what clinical trials is he/she eligible for?

Cost of Care -  What is the expected cost of medical services this patient will require?

What Experts Are Saying

Dr. Kevin Johnson, Chair of Biomedical Informatics at Vanderbilt University
What I really love about this is [the merging of] traditional MD train of thought — use a consult — with a newfangled data science approach. I’ve been watching the project evolve, trying to learn more about it so that we might be able to implement it here at Vanderbilt.
One of our NLM funded researchers at Stanford has an on the moment consulting service that allows physicians to learn immediately about the experience of 1000s of patients and find out was any patient like theirs and how did they respond.
