BOWIE, Md., June 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Inovalon, Inc., a leading technology company providing advanced cloud-based analytics and data-driven solutions to the healthcare industry, today announced a comparative safety research study to be presented at the American Diabetes Association 74th Scientific Sessions June 13-17 in San Francisco, California. The study was supported by data from Inovalon's Medical Outcomes Research for Effectiveness and Economics Registry (MORE2 Registry®).
Inovalon's Statistical Research Team will be present "Comparative Safety of Oral Antidiabetic Therapy on Risk of Fracture in Patients with Diabetes." The purpose of this study was to address the lack of evidence of relative advantage of one antidiabetic drug class over the other with respect to risk of fracture as outlined in the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) 2011 comparative effectiveness review on oral medications for Type 2 Diabetes. To our knowledge, this study is the first report to include a drug class-level comparison of risk of fracture related to all antidiabetic drug classes using a large administrative claims database. Information about the relative advantage of one drug over the other can be useful to support optimal treatment decisions and can have major implications for reducing healthcare costs.
"A key advantage of large retrospective data such as our MORE2 Registry is the ability to conduct large observational studies not possible with data reported by typically small clinical trials," said Dan Rizzo, Chief Innovation Officer at Inovalon. "The goal is to help answer the question: 'What works best under what conditions for what patients?' This research will support development of evidence based guidelines and practices better tailored to individual patient characteristics to support optimal treatment plans."
Inovalon's Health Services Researchers, co-authors of the research include: Sandhya Mehta, PhD; Barton T. Jones, MS; Antoine Kfuri, MD, MPH, CMQ; and Christie Teigland, PhD.
The presentations will be held on Sunday, June 15 at 8:00 a.m.
