About QPID Health

QPID optimizes “return on information” from data stored in electronic health records, clinical data repositories, and health information exchanges. With QPID’s clinical reasoning platform, hospitals and medical groups can prove compliance with quality measures, participate in registries, and identify cohorts for research or care management – using fewer resources and more accurately. By automatically mining all the information in a patient’s record, QPID supports better utilization management and care decisions. Before QPID, expensive clinical resources conducting manual chart review were required to leverage insights from unstructured information such as notes, estimated to be 80% of a patient’s record.

QPID was developed at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and usage spread virally throughout the Partners HealthCare system. There are over 7500 active QPID users at MGH, Brigham & Women’s, Silver Hill, Spaulding, and Newton Wellesley, among other institutions. QPID Health launched in late 2012 to bring the power of QPID to health systems nationwide. Investors include Cardinal Partners, Matrix Partners, Massachusetts General Physicians Organization, New Leaf Venture Partners, and Partners Innovation Fund.
