Healthcare Tech…
with a Clinical First approach

We work with HIEs to build and deploy software
products that clinicians trust

We’re different (than most tech companies)…

  • We want the control of HIE healthcare data to remain firmly with our nation’s HIEs.
  • We want the cost of technology to decrease as it becomes more clinically valuable.
  • We want the profits of technology to remain as close to patient care as possible

Why do we choose to be so different? Please contact us for a more in-depth discussion.

Our Products

Ascendence CDR

The Ascendence Clinical Data Repository (CDR) is a parallel CDR powered with an HIE’s data flow. It doesn’t replace any current infrastructure.

US Core (FHIR) based in its design, it leverages a simplified ontology to make implementation, maintenance, and future expansion simpler, cheaper, and quicker.

Patient Centered Data Report (PCDR)

The PCDR is CliniCentric’s answer to the increasingly complex technology environments clinicians are so often forced to use.

Powered by the Ascendence CDR (or a CCD) and accessible with the Convergence API, it gets clinicians to the information they need (and want) with a minimum of clicks.

Convergence API

The Convergence API allows for in-workflow access and use of an HIE's data and information.

Bi-directional, simple in design, and quick to implement, it allows for a range of technologies to be presented and accessed through a single, recognizable interface.

RADS Check

Radiology is a good thing…sometimes it's too much of a good thing. RADS Check is an application designed to allow clinicians to rapidly understand a patient’s past radiologic history.

Delivered via the Convergence API, it guides appropriate ordering and offers additional study-based semantic, search, and retrieve functionality.


CareQuest represents a new approach to the role HIEs can have with Care Management. It allows HIEs to offer automated care management inputs (ACMIs) that are powered by the extensive data flow an HIE receives.

The result is a ”Care Management Exchange” that democratizes care management requests allowing anyone caring for a patient to contribute to broader healthcare needs.

Our Leadership

Dr. James (Jim) Huizenga is our physician leader. Part of the class of 2000 from the University of Michigan, Jim came to clinical medicine with a decade of fighter pilot experience in the USAF and years of software design and programming experience. Trained and Board Certified in Emergency Medicine and Flight Medicine with the USAF, he has practiced clinically for 20 years and simultaneously engineered, developed, and deployed several healthcare tech solutions. A holder of multiple healthcare data and analytic patents, Dr. Huizenga continues to listen, work, evolve, and grow in the healthcare technology space.

Brian Breneman is our Chief Technology Officer and has 30 years of professional experience in software engineering. He specializes in the architecture of highly complex systems and has worked for small and medium sized businesses, state government, and Fortune 500 companies. For the past 12 years he has worked almost exclusively on a number of novel healthcare applications, and is a holder of patents in healthcare data and analytics. Brian is also active as a professional musician (trumpet) and is a graduate of Xavier University in Cincinnati, OH.

Dorothea J. Trimble, MSA, RN, CPHQ is our care management expert.  She has over 20 years of progressive leadership experience across the continuum of care, within integrated health care systems and managed care, including government programs. She has developed and implemented care management programs in the primary care and emergency department settings. She is passionate about gaining insight from data to align people and processes to achieve measurable, sustained improvement.  Dorothea is a registered nurse with a MS degree in administration/leadership from Central Michigan University and is certified in healthcare quality.

Paul Groll (MS, CISSP, CCSE, CSM, ITIL) manages our security and compliance.  He is a thought leader across a broad range of traditional and emerging technologies, with expertise in network and data security, cryptography, scientific and mathematical computing, information and data architecture, and process and automation design. Paul studies and practices extensively to remain up to date with IETF, NIST, IoT, blockchain, and other emerging technologies and standards. He is active in multiple cybersecurity, health-related, and government-focused computing associations including ISSA, ISC2, HIMSS, NASTD, and ISACA.
