About Us

Deontics was set up to commercialize Clinical Pathways and Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSS) developed at Cancer Research UK (CRUK), Oxford University and University College London (UCL).

Deontics sytems utilize the PROforma computer language developed from first principles for use in modelling clinical pathways and decision support. Deontics tools built using PROforma encopass a full suite ranging at one end from authoring tools, capable of efficiently deriving executable clinical logic and semantics from clinical guidelines and basic science publications, through the Deontics Decision Engine, to Deontics Authoring for modelling workflow and pathways, and Deontics Data, for data capture, and Deontics User Interfaces.
