MyHealth Access Network in Tulsa, Okla., one of 17 federally funded Beacon Communities to serve as model sites for best practices in adoption and use of health information technology, will implement clinical decision support software from Archimedes Inc., San Francisco.

The network is a coalition of 50 organizations, including Saint Francis Health System, Saint John Health System, Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences, Oklahoma University School of Community Medicine, and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma.

The Individualized Guidelines and Outcomes software of Archimedes, called IndiGO, analyzes electronic health records data to assess the risk of a patient having a heart attack or stroke, or developing diabetes, and the predicted effect of interventions. The software also assists in developing an individualized treatment and prevention plan that can be printed for patients.

The software originally was developed at Kaiser Permanente. Archimedes has two other clients--the Colorado Beacon Consortium that’s also a Beacon Community, and Fairview Health Services in Minneapolis. More information is at
