Zynx Health was founded around a mission to improve the quality, safety, and efficiency of healthcare. For more than 20 years, Zynx has empowered thousands of healthcare organizations and clinicians to align their clinical decision support, strategies, and workflows around the standardization and infusion of evidence-based vital information and experience-based best practices.

The company’s historical roots are the quality improvement innovator for a large healthcare system and as a pioneer in the development, implementation, and continuous improvement of evidence-based care guidance solutions are integral to its culture that strives to improve patient outcomes and financial performance. This foundation is exemplified by the employees, who represent the best talent and expertise across the intersection of content creation, technical delivery, and clinical adoption.

Improving patient outcomes requires more than just up-to-date evidence. It’s about having the right evidence in an accessible format that fits naturally within clinician workflows. At Zynx Health™, the firm’s solutions drive performance by delivering vital information that has been proven to positively impact patient outcomes and that easily integrates into end-user workflows.

Improving patient outcomes requires more than just up-to-date evidence. It’s about having the right evidence in an accessible format that fits naturally within clinician workflows. Zynx Health’s solutions furnish great performance by delivering vital information that has been proven to positively impact patient outcomes and that easily integrates into end-user workflows.

Evidence That Matters Most

Not all evidence is created equal — some medical research has a greater impact on performance and has proven to improve outcomes, including:

  • Mortality
  • Cost
  • Length of stay
  • Admissions/readmissions
  • Hospital-acquired conditions

The organization calls this subset of evidence Zynx Vital Interventions, and it highlights these key clinical processes across all of its solutions, making it easier for you to identify and make changes that have an immediate effect on outcomes.

Easily Accessible and Continually Updated Evidence

While the firm highlights Zynx Vital Interventions, it also understands that to improve patient outcomes, access to the totality of evidence at the point of care is important. Zynx continually surveys the volume of healthcare research, including clinical studies, national guidelines, and quality measures, and regularly makes updates to content. Its evidence is more than a point-of-care reference library, it’s also the foundation of its knowledge base that is incorporated across the company’s order sets, plans of care, checklists, and other care guidance.

Financial Performance

By standardizing content and reducing variation, Zynx Health helps healthcare organizations reduce penalties and elicit greater financial returns under recent US healthcare reform policies.

Clinical Engagement

To improve clinical and financial outcomes, evidence-based care guidance must be used consistently at the point of care. Zynx’s solutions deliver relevant content and workflows that drive consistent clinician adoption by cutting through the noise of overwhelming healthcare research. The company can quickly distinguish changes with the most impact on patient outcomes, and it builds accountability by involving clinicians during all stages of clinical decision support (CDS) development and maintenance.

Technology Performance

Zynx Health solutions complement your electronic health record (EHR), computerized provider order entry system, and clinical processes to improve their performance. Innovative approaches around content integration, clinical content validation, and single-system content maintenance streamline projects and maximize the value of your healthcare technology and processes.
