mTuitive Logo mTuitive, Inc. develops data capture and synoptic reporting software to assist health care professionals in recording clinical findings and maintaining compliance with established protocols and guidelines.

Our unique method of capturing structured information provides valuable data for pathology, surgery, oncology and cancer staging applications. Our products allow the clinical decision maker to conveniently receive alerts and reference materials directly at the point of care. mTuitive solutions improve care to the patient through quality assurance and error reduction while standardizing and automating manual reporting processes, reducing both time and labor costs.

How does mTuitive do this?

mTuitive takes real world knowledge and creates products that clinical decision makers may use. Product development starts with a best practice or established guideline that was developed by a professional society or teaching institution. That protocol is integrated into a computerized template that is stored with correlating clinical knowledge. This information is available within the software product, which may be accessed by everyday users on their workstations. The user follows the established guidelines in the software and inputs patient data electronically. Results data may be collected in an mTuitive repository for future analysis. The end result greatly simplifies the process of entering clinical findings and uniquely provides correlating established protocols and reference materials right at the clinical decision maker's fingertips. By allowing for this immediate connection to established guidelines, better clinical decisions that benefit both the patient and the caregiver result along with improved efficiency for the institution.

Established in 2003, mTuitive, Inc. is based in Massachusetts. With over 100 hospital and surgery center clients worldwide, mTuitive has become a leader in providing structured data solutions to healthcare organizations.
