About the Company

IMPROVE OUTCOMES. LOWER COSTS.

WELCOME TO WHAT’S NEXT

Qmetis is a healthcare technology company built around the science of evidence-based medicine. We build quality assessment and quality assurance decision- support tools for doctors and nurses which deliver evidence-based medicine treatment guidelines in real-time, at the bedside.

Our fast, easy and interactive decision-support tools are designed to increase compliance with evidence-based treatment guidelines. As compliance with evidence-based care increases, patient outcomes improve, and improved outcomes can reduce the cost of care.

Qmetis’ first product is for adult traumatic brain injury as the independent medical literature has shown that the implementation of evidence-based guidelines improves patient outcomes – improves functional outcome – while reducing acute care costs.

Qmetis’ second product is for pediatric traumatic brain injury and will be joined soon by our decision-support tools for stroke, sepsis, asthma, concussion, and spinal cord injury.
