BioEthx™ has conducted research into private sector practices in documenting and managing the progression of bioethics cases in the clinical setting. BioEthx staff has long been involved in the development of software designed to assist ethicists and ethics committees in managing clinical and organizational ethics cases. Accumulated expertise and evolving software delivery methods have now come together to produce the first publicly-available software system dedicated to the task of healthcare ethics consultation.

The end result is the BioEthx online service for consult management. The web-based service is designed to support the management of ethics consultations from initial event and information capture through resolution and follow-up evaluation. It provides an effective and easy-to-use tool for managing the workflow of ethics consultations in accordance with established procedures and to fully document case history and the analytical process undertaken to produce the best possible outcome.
