Cognitive Medical Systems announced today that its product division will operate as Saperi Systems, effective immediately. 

The wholly-owned subsidiary will provide faster development of its clinical decision software platforms for the commercial sector, with Cognitive narrowing its focus to delivering healthcare technology services for a wide array of organizations, principally the Federal Government.

“We’ve planned this strategic move over the last year. The decision empowers both organizations to both meet market needs fully and to optimize resources effectively,” said Cognitive Medical Systems’ President, Douglas W. Burke. “Operating as both a product and a services company proved challenging. This new structure affords both Saperi and Cognitive Medical Systems with the ability to develop and fulfill offerings in demand by healthcare companies, government and for-profit institutions more efficiently. We’re excited about the future!” 

Cognitive Medical Systems’ technology services will include:

  • Custom Software Development
  • Systems Integration
  • Electronic Healthcare Records (EHR) Implementation and Optimization
  • Workflow Optimization
  • Clinical Informatics
  • Data Analytics
  • Cloud Hosting and Services

Saperi Systems will provide products based on its Clinical Optimization and Reasoning Architecture (CORA), a dynamically configurable knowledge management system that ensures organizations, providers and patients have the data and analyses they require to make better decisions, achieve administrative, financial, and regulatory compliance goals, and ultimately provide the very best care possible. The company will also offer a variety of optional professional services to support its customers on how to use CORA and/or its derivative products effectively.
