Our software tools for a better decision making


Welphi enables an environment to build Delphi processes quickly and easily. Defining criteria for the evaluation of Health technologies can now be transformed into an anonymous online Delphi with a large number of participants across countries and expertise.

The Wisedon Decision Support System (DSS), implements the Advanced Value Framework, a methodological framework for assessing the value of new medical technologies using the Multiple Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) approach MACBETH.
