A Mayo Clinic academic clinical team and technology entrepreneurs are launching a new company focused on providing critical decision support tools for ICU, operating room and emergency departments right at the patient’s bedside.

The company, Ambient Clinical Analytics, is backed by $1.1 million in seed funding from Mayo Clinic and Silicon Valley investors The Social+Capital Partnership, and nonprofit Rock Health. Al Berning, a 20-year technology veteran, will head the new company as CEO.

Ambient Clinical Analytics will bring together new technologies, seeded from Mayo Clinic, to change the way critical care providers operate, offering real-time access to important process-of-care information and analytics, lessening the likelihood of procedural failures and saving lives, its officials say.

The three new technologies are at the core of Ambient Clinical Analytics’ analytics platform for providers:

• AWARE (Ambient Warning and Response Evaluation) is a clinical electronic medical record (EMR) tool that reduces information overload by using analytics to filter relevant patient data and supporting best-care practices for ICUs and operating rooms.

• Mayo Clinic YES Board is a multi-patient management tool that provides real-time situational awareness for emergency departments and hospital pediatric departments.

• Syndromic Surveillance provides smart alerts or “sniffers” that address important clinical problems such as sepsis.

• The Synthesis technology connects patients’ data with mobile devices. This is a component for both the YES Board and AWARE.
