3. PhenoTips Incorporates to Bring PhenoTips Software into Clinical Care
Having now created PhenoTips, the first software to make capturing the standardized and powerful Human Phenotype Ontology efficient and simple, the research team realized they had stumbled upon much more than they originally intended. Understanding the revolutionary power PhenoTips would have in a clinical setting, the team founded a company on January 22nd, 2014 to take ownership of the software and begin translating PhenoTips from a research project into a clinical tool. The company, now known as PhenoTips, ensured the project could grow beyond its host institutions and original purpose into a powerful clinical aid with enhanced security, stability, and the possibility of integration with other systems.
