Our Company

HealthRx is the home of a highly-experienced group of health sciences software innovators. We develop secure web-based and mobile solutions to streamline information flow in the clinical and research environment. Our products enable efficient research tracking, clinical resource allocation, complex patient appointing, medical surveillance, and case management to make critical connections safely in disparate functional groups where research and patient contact intersect.

As a Corporate Affiliate of George Mason University in Fairfax Virginia, we are located in the heart of the Volgenau School of Engineering where we have access to some of the region’s brightest researchers in bioengineering, computer science, and computational sciences with whom we collaborate on both practical and theoretical problems related to our industry. Our team of highly-educated, well-rounded professionals possess a wealth of experience in information technology and health care.

We strive to participate as speakers at invited talks, seminars, panels, and formal classrooms on diverse topics such as health care technology, bioinformatics, data visualization, and biomedical signal analysis. Additionally, our team continues to publish academic articles and serve as leaders in the biomedical and academic communities.

Our Rich History in Clinical and Biomedical Research

We have a twenty-one-year history of developing and deploying advanced clinical and biomedical research tools for hospitals, clinics, and research institutions.  Through the years we have had the pleasure of partnering with prestigious healthcare delivery organizations such as Inova Health System in Fairfax, VA, St. Mary’s Hospital in Waterbury, CT, Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston, MA, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) campuses in Bethesda, MD, Frederick MD, Baltimore, MD, Hamilton, MT, and Research Triangle Park, NC.

In our partnership with a Dutch radiotherapy manufacturer, we deployed over 100 installations of our Clinical Access Manager worldwide and developed complex scheduling algorithms to support cancer treatment, surgical scheduling, and long-term clinical trials.

Most notably, we are continuing our sixteen-year relationship with the NIH where we’ve partnered with the leading biomedical and clinical research professionals on multiple, interconnected boutique systems. Our systems run in the Clinical Center, Occupational Medical Service, Occupational Health and Safety, and in Principal Investigators’ labs and offices throughout the NIH.

We have recently deployed PI-Dashboard to the Food and Drug Administration at their new White Oak campus in Silver Spring, MD to support radiation safety, chemical safety, multi-site IRB, and biological and animal research.

Our Mission

Our mission is to develop products that support clinicians and researchers in bettering human health by streamlining and connecting operations across the continuum of clinical research, health care delivery, and enterprise research safety.

Our constant goal is for our products provide the level of quality and simplicity needed to streamline processes to keep clinicians and researchers productive, healthy, compliant, and safe.
