Shared Decisions Transform
Health Care

Put the patient at the center of health care decisions.

Cut costs and encourage adherence to treatment plans.

21st Century Advocacy

All patients, especially the sick, elderly and the vulnerable, need help weighing the risks and benefits for health care treatment plans. Our tool delivers information and guidance from trusted physicians.

Safe and Secure

Health IT tools make or break Shared Decision-Making. At SDMCentral, patients can access decision tools via a patient portal and talk with health care teams via secure messaging. Clinics can build triggers into the Electronic Health Record (EHR) to remind providers to share a decision tool.

Do-It Yourself

Bring your team together with our Smart Builder tool within our Collaboration Center where you and your team can get easy instructions on how to build your own SDM Tool.


Power up your business with a Full-Stack SDM Tool Builder that fits your needs.

Advanced Reporting

Strengthen the bond with your members by tracking key metrics such as tool completion, satisfaction, and adherence to treatment plans.

Active Community

Members, caregivers, clinicians and other stakeholders get an important role by crowd-validating the Shared Decision-Making Tool.


Your staff can speed development by connecting their familiar and favorite tools with API access.
