ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Oct. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Albuquerque, NM – based New Mexico Orthopaedics has chosen to partner with Universal Research Solutions (a.k.a. OBERD) to electronically collect unified patient health outcomes, satisfaction and education data, as well as operative data. Through this partnership, New Mexico Orthopaedics will have access to OBERD's Musculoskeletal and Quality of Life Registries to compare outcomes scores across nationwide data sets with the goal of providing evidence-based care and improving patient outcomes.
New Mexico Orthopaedics's commitment to helping every patient reach maximum performance and health aligns with OBERD's expertise in musculoskeletal outcomes data collection. OBERD's Registries provide large data sets for benchmarking, research, and quality improvement initiatives. Additionally, OBERD's ability to collect outcomes, satisfaction, patient education and operative data on a unified, integrated platform will enable New Mexico Orthopaedics to glean insights and drive efficiencies in clinic.
"We serve a very large, active patient population. OBERD's ability to integrate with our existing systems and automate data collection provides tremendous value to our staff and practice," said Nancy Adelsheim, Executive Director of New Mexico Orthopaedics. "We are committed to designing individual care plans to get our patients back to active life quickly. Insights gained from patient data collected on OBERD will give our physicians tools they need to develop the best care plans possible. Plus, the ability to collect and report MIPS data in a patient-reported fashion is a huge value-add."
New Mexico Orthopaedics will use OBERD to achieve the following institutional goals:
- Collect unified patient-reported Outcomes, Satisfaction and Education data
- Collect operative data and generate automated operative notes with eDictation and eSignature capabilities
- Collect and report MIPS Quality and CPIA data
- Gather insight from outcomes data to reduce cost and enhance quality and efficiency of care
"We're thrilled to work with New Mexico Orthopaedics," said Ali Hussam, PhD, OBERD Founder and CEO. "We're excited to work together, using OBERD-developed data mining tools and New Mexico Orthopaedics' data, to demonstrate the value and practical application of their outcomes scores – especially when benchmarked against national aggregate data."
