The Software Solution

The pinnacle of Palliative Care technology evolution

Palliametrics is the culmination of several years of architectural, design and development work focused on delivering software that improves palliative care delivery and outcomes. As a modern, cloud-based technology, Palliametrics reflects not only the software expertise of its developers, Data AnyWare, but also the critical input of multiple national palliative care consultants and practitioners.

How did we get here?

In light of the rapid evolution in palliative care practices and associated quality improvements, Data AnyWare realized in 2015 that the face of palliative care service delivery could be transformed through a shared platform that supports all types of palliative care providers across varied care settings. By building a palliative care solution using the Software as a Service (SaaS) model, Data AnyWare allows all palliative care organizations to benefit from a unified platform providing continually updated quality standards, while still being able to realize the benefits of customization at an organizational level. The Palliametrics application’s advanced architecture provides for this seamless versatility, as well as the ability to support new models of palliative care service delivery in the future.
