About Illumicare

Founded in 2014 in Birmingham, Ala. by a visionary physician and team of hospital IT experts, IllumiCare is dedicated to helping clinicians become better stewards of system and patient resources. Its Smart Ribbon® platform brings clinicians critical, patient-specific data in a focused view for expedited clinical decision making at the point of care, without disrupting clinical workflow.

Smart Ribbon Quick Facts

  • IllumiCare’s Smart Ribbon helps to reverse the trends of over-diagnosis, over-investigation and over-treatment of patients.
  • The Smart Ribbon has an assortment of apps for health systems to choose to implement for clinicians: Stewardship, Length of Stay, Controlled Substance/PDMP, Care Gaps, Clinical Trial Recruiting and more.
  • In addition to IllumiCare-created apps, third-party technology providers work with IllumiCare to create apps for the Ribbon to display their data, such as VigiLanz, UpToDate, and others.
  • The Ribbon can be customized to user type and patient location so only valuable, actionable data is provided to that user, whether they are a pharmacist or physician; in the hospital, an ambulatory center, or elsewhere.
  • The Ribbon is EMR-agnostic, however, it does have integrations with various EMR providers, including Epic, Cerner, Athena, NextGen, AllScripts and Meditech.
  • The technology isn’t a standard clinical decision support system that requires clinicians to manage alerts and answer prompts. It is designed not to disrupt clinical workflow by affording the clinicians more choice and power in engaging with its information.
