SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Remedy Informatics, Inc., the leading provider of registries for blood and marrow transplantation centres around the world, announced that the European Group for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT) has selected Remedy's Mosaic™ Platform as the technology solution for EBMT's Registry Upgrade Project.
EBMT is upgrading its current EBMT Registry to meet the evolving data management and analysis needs of its member centres, national registries and other partners to facilitate increased collaboration among researchers focused on EBMT's mission to improve patient care and clinical practice in haematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
"Our registry has been an important tool for BMT researchers throughout Europe for decades, and we have recognized the need to upgrade our registry to better meet the evolving needs of our member centres, scientists and collaborating institutions," said Professor Alejandro Madrigal, president of the EBMT. "In our search for new registry technology for our upgrade initiative, we were very impressed with the flexibility and ease of use of Remedy's registry software. Having a registry that incorporates reporting interfaces, user-friendly data visualisation and analytical tools will enable us to deliver substantial benefits to our member BMT researchers and clinicians looking to improve patient outcomes."
Remedy's registries are built on its flagship Mosaic Platform, which offers the industry's most advanced clinical informatics solution. The Mosaic Platform offers highly configurable, user-friendly registries that evolve as a BMT centre's research needs change over time, without the need to engage IT departments or outside technology consultants. The Mosaic Platform will enable the EBMT Registry to broaden its impact on quality patient outcomes as it allows clinical researchers to gain a 360-degree view of the data collected from more than 500 participating BMT centres throughout the world. Researchers and physicians will then be able to analyse the data using powerful pattern recognition and data visualisation tools to further their efforts to improve the quality of care.
"We are thrilled to be selected to partner with EBMT as they work to improve patient outcomes of haematopoietic stem cell transplants (HSCT) throughout Europe and their member countries," said Gary Kennedy, founder and CEO of Remedy Informatics. "The EBMT Registry has been a valuable resource for BMT researchers for more than four decades and we are confident that the power and versatility of our registry software will aid EBMT as they work to expand further the size and value of their HSCT database. Ultimately, the entire European BMT community will benefit as EBMT member centres, collaborators and outside groups use our software to tangibly, measurably, and permanently improve the effectiveness of their care and patient-centred research."
The EBMT Registry is a collection of data from patients undergoing haematopoietic stem cell transplants used in the treatment of leukemia, lymphomas, genetics diseases, etc. and has collected data since the early 1970s. It is the single largest data source of its kind in Europe. The Registry holds more than 400,000 transplant registrations, from roughly 50 countries around the world. The main function of the EBMT Registry is to serve as a source of data for clinical research aimed at improving patient outcomes. Established in 1974, the EBMT is a non-profit organisation that is committed to serving scientists and physicians involved in clinical bone marrow transplantation and aid them in sharing their experiences and developing cooperative studies.
With its ComprehensiveBMT™ registry product, Remedy has established itself as the leader in BMT research informatics. Leading BMT research institutions have selected ComprehensiveBMT to help them expand their efforts to improve BMT discoveries and patient outcomes, including the Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto, Canada, the University of Utah's Huntsman Cancer Institute, Mercy Healthcare's Jewish Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio, and the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. ComprehensiveBMT enables BMT centres to aggregate, map and harmonise BMT data from EHRs, existing databases and other clinical information systems and analyse their data with powerful pattern recognition tools. ComprehensiveBMT also includes user-friendly tools for reporting data to the CIBMTR AGNIS database, producing dashboards and reports on patient outcomes, and facilitating FACT accreditation.

Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Su...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
