Cognuse team strongly believes that patient safety can and should be improved with digital technologies and human errors can be minimized with the help of simple and accessible technology.

Critical care is one of the most complication prone settings in healthcare and by far the most expensive one. Medical errors affect millions of people worldwide and are believed to be number third death cause in the US. Nursing errors in the ICUs are affected by several factors, including the high workload, short staffing, and high turnover.

Critical care is one of the most complication prone settings in healthcare and by far the most expensive one. Medical errors affect millions of people worldwide and are believed to be number third death cause in the US. Nursing errors in the ICUs are affected by several factors, including the high workload, short staffing, and high turnover. Hospitals are fighting against errors by developing guidelines but haven’t succeeded in integrating them into the workflow with any of the existing solutions.

CoNurse is a simple yet elegant voice-guided tool for improving quality and reducing avoidable medical errors and patient harm. This tool is seamlessly
integrated into the clinical workflow to help ensure procedural protocols, guidelines, and checklists are followed each and every time by supporting nurses’ memory to remember over 300+ protocols.
Application runs on the smartphone and by wearing a Bluetooth headset, it is ensured that the user-experience is entirely hands-free, aligning with hospital hygiene and infection control measures.
Guidelines management is made easy for the quality department by providing a system with pre-set of guidelines which can be adapted and adjusted regarding the hospital needs.
Another aspect of the digital platform is involving families and caregivers in the care loop at more advanced levels, empowering them to take upon nursing and therapeutic actions and thus extending the amount of therapy and support for the patient.

Recommendations

Andres has guided Cognuse from its inception and more importantly knows when to pivot to react to market demands. He has an excellent grasp of the technology and the market requirements. He is highly articulate and hard working. I highly recommend him for his vast range of skills which are vital to Cognuse's success.

As an active advisor to Cognuse, I became involved with the company in 2014 after their successful completion of the DreamIt Health Baltimore accelerator. Cognuse has a proven track record in working with large health systems and other partners in the health and medical sectors. They offer a fresh look into how healthcare can be changed with safe disruptions to the clinician workflows as well as the empathy aspects of the patient journey.
It has been fascinating to play a role in their efforts in providing a better care continuum and applicable tools to everyone in the care loop.

Have worked with Andres and cognuse for approx one year now. As the largest research group in Australia's largest cardiac hospital, we began by developing a language free app to diagnose delirium better. We were so impressed by the professionalism that we then entered an agreement to co-develop a cardio-thoracic limb of his patient-clinician platform, This will be a world leader and provide s much to both clinician and patient. Subsequent to this, we have entrusted them with developing high end animation for mechanical assist implantation for Asia's largest meeting on Bionic Hearts and Lungs.

Hence, we started with a small simple project but each time Cognuse has over delivered, and we have been inspired to work all the more with these world leaders.
