Cognitive Medical Systems Inc., a health care software company, announced that it secured 11 federal and state agency contracts last quarter.

The total year-to-date sales now exceeds $8.6 million, a near 300 percent increase from last year.

“We’re proud to be leading the technology movement that is making Clinical Decision Support systems the means by which health care decision making and workflow orchestration are done in real time,” said Emory Fry, CEO of Cognitive Medical Systems. “We are committed to helping develop national standards in the cognitive support space and for improving the ability for patients, providers and organizations to make informed decisions.”

Organizations that signed or renewed agreements with Cognitive Medical Systems this year include the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Defense. Other partnerships include HealthNet, ManTech International Corp. and ASM Research, an Accenture Federal Services Company. In all, Cognitive Medical Systems is currently engaged in nearly 30 contracts.

“We’re not only creating custom CDS platforms for these organizations, but also scheduled to release our first turnkey product for health care and government organizations in the first quarter of 2015,” said President Douglas Burke of Cognitive Medical Systems. “We’re actively expanding our operations to make this happen and are in the market for software developers to add to our team. It’s a great opportunity for anyone wanting to join a fast growing company and to positively impact the lives of patients.”
