Zynx Health has well-developed platforms for hospital and ambulatory care, incorporating more than 500 clinical decision support rules and 1,100 templates for order sets into its various software packages. An online resource, ZynxEvidence, provides nearly 150 modules of evidence-based clinical content for computerized physician order entry.
When integrated with an EHR, the Zynx system produces clinical reminders that include detailed care plans based on each patient's condition.
Co-founded by UCLA internist Dr. Scott Weingarten, director of health services research at Cedars-Sinai Health System in Los Angeles, and Dr. Nancy Greengold, now president of the related Zynx Health Device Network after a stint at Wolters Kluwer Health, Zynx Health has been owned by publishing giant Hearst since 2004.
