Create and share best-practice pathways for better, safer care.

OpenClinical’s transparent AI care apps present the right pathway for each case, and explain every decision

Knowledge Engineering

A different kind of AI, safer clinical systems, a new kind of publishing

Challenge

Helping carers to improve quality, consistency, and safety of care in the face of ever-increasing demand and an explosion of knowledge and data, always recognising the over-riding concern for quality and safety.

Concept

Our community is developing an open library of “active” guidelines for clinicians and researchers. Our methods and tools help you translate guidelines into executable models, “publets”. Apps using publets prompt carers to practise in compliance – or show why their decision is different.

Mission

To help carers and clinicians deliver care that is right first time, every time. We help them create, share, review and use executable, knowledge-based, best-practice guidelines. This AI is transparent – users can see how recommendations arise from the guideline.​

AI isn’t just about data; understanding the knowledge and expertise behind clinical best practice delivers care apps that patients and carers trust and want to use.

A learning health system

Care guidelines have paths for every eventuality; they’re complex, often hard to use. OC  translates guidelines into machine-executable publets, which show only case-relevant pathways, ensuring the right care

Multiple User Communities

OpenClinical adds value to multiple knowledge/data user communities: originators, technologists, publishers,  providers

Scientists, clinicians, care quality experts, and many professionals beyond, now have a new way of disseminating best practice as executable knowledge models. This content can be used in a wide range of applications and adapted for different settings.

Tools and methods

Take the modelling course (you don’t need to be a programmer!)

Develop, test and publish your model for others to review, validate, enhance …

Library

OpenClinical’s library of knowledge models is open access for all and basic software is open source for members; the first release included more than 50 training examples and demonstrators. 

Public Resource

Library is a public resource to help clinicians and scientists share knowledge of best practice using AI/KE to improve quality and safety during a process of care.

Membership

Registered OC.net members can “enact” a library application for research and other non-commercial purposes.

License and Download

Members can also license and download publets from Library to create a version tailored for their local requirements or for their own research. 

During the launch phase of OpenClinical publets are available for research and review purposes only. Publets must not be used in any role that might affect someone’s care except under an ethically approved protocol.
