Deontics Authoring solutions provides Deontics authoring technologies and support to organisations writing clinical or other guidelines. Utilising Deontics Authoring tools, it is possible to build ‘active’ versions of guidelines which are capable of extracting recommendations and alerts specifically relevant to e.g. individual patient data, from the conventional guideline. These functionalities can be mixed and matched with workflow modules to produce an ‘active’ version of a guideline. This process is capable of enhancing the utility of written guidelines and making them much more attractive to users at the point of care. Producing an ‘active’ clinical guideline is a little analagous to producing a ‘SatNav’ from a flat paper map, for example.
