Recent changes in Medicare coding requirements have caused hospitals to suffer from lost revenues, penalties and forfeiture of reimbursements due to inadequate documentation. Founder Dr. Jon Elion, who earlier created the highly successful Heartlab imaging software, tackled this problem with an expert team.
The result was the company’s premiere product, ChartWise:CDI, which is the first-to-market Computer-Assisted Clinical Documentation Improvement (CACDI) software system designed to improve precision in quality clinical documentation to support revenue assurance. In February 2014 ChartWise launched an upgraded system, ChartWise 2.0—redefining CDI with powerful new features and an advance new user interface.
The program is easy for medical professionals to understand and use, has a light IT footprint, and offers hospitals a way to mitigate risk, maximize reimbursement, and gain insight into their medical documentation improvement efforts. No other program is as robust, or addresses the clinical documentation challenges, the way ChartWise does.
With over 40 years of experience in computing and more than 25 years of experience in medical computing and information standards, Dr. Elion has committed his career to innovations in high value services and healthcare delivery to maximize efficiency and cost effectiveness.
Dr. Elion is a practicing board-certified cardiologist in Providence, RI and an Associate Professor of Medicine at Brown University. He has served on the Finance Committee and Board of Trustees of one of the Brown affiliated hospitals, and is well versed in hospital finances. His experience provides him with the unique combination of in-depth medical and technology knowledge with a proven track record of entrepreneurship and business development.
In 1994, Dr. Elion founded Heartlab, Inc., the world’s leading designer and supplier of digital image and information networks for cardiology. The company grew successfully to over 200 people and was sold to Agfa Healthcare in 2005.

We’re an interesting and talented group of people dedicated to the advancement of healthcare IT. Some of us have been working together for over 15 years, and our developers average more than 25 years in programming and computer technology. While we may be “techie” geeks that are committed to bringing our customers the best in application software, we’re also well rounded in our extracurricular activities. After business hours, we can be found coaching our kids’ sports teams, at horse shows, on the golf course, jamming with the band, farming, hitting the slopes, or kayaking. We’re also into film, photography, songwriting, gaming—and the occasional Nerf® shoot out. We’re passionate about our work at ChartWise and have mutual respect for one another both personally and professionally, which makes our work a whole lot of fun.
