Mission: Make the clinician's job easier while improving patient safety
The Case for Informatics in Clinical Medicine: Clinical knowledge has exploded (the U.S. National Library of Medicine archives 1500-3500 citations each day) and it is unrealistic, and possibly unethical, for 21st century healthcare not to make a concerted attempt to incorporate information technology. The problem is no longer "What care is best", but rather, how can the mountain of available, disorganized evidence, be effectively applied at the front line of clinical care?
Without information technology, this explosion in medical knowledge, combined with the complexity of illness, produces wide variation in clinical practice and leads to unacceptable clinical error as well as poor compliance with established guidelines. Research indicates that IT enabled point-of-care access to properly filtered clinical evidence combined with individual patient information would change up to 60% of clinical decisions!

*Patient privacy is important to us and we take great care to protect patient information both during transit and in the Bluebird Hub. However, once information is retrieved to a user's device, we can no longer take any responsibility for security of information on that device. We highly recommend the use of disc encryption e.g. Windows based disc encryption, can, and should, be used to encrypt the hard drive so that data is protected if the hard drive falls into the wrong hands. If you choose to store the Bluebird password on the computer or if you use older Bluebird tools that are not password protected, disc encryption is essential.
