SALT LAKE CITY, July 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Remedy Informatics, the leading provider of registry-based clinical informatics software for healthcare delivery and life sciences research, announced that it has teamed up with the National Pancreas Foundation (NPF) to build the first-ever national patient registry devoted to all pancreatic diseases, including pancreatic cancer and pancreatitis.
"The National Pancreas Foundation is a prime example of the evolutionary change that thoughtful and committed organizations can effect upon society as a whole, and we're thrilled at the opportunity to work with them," said Gary Kennedy, Founder & CEO of Remedy Informatics. "Our technology will significantly enhance their efforts to advance research, care and therapies for pancreatic cancer and pancreatitis. As we work with the NPF to build, deploy and promote participation and utilization to drive their efforts, I believe the greatest benefit will come from the relative ease and speed at which the foundation and its researchers will be able to recognize patterns in the data they collect. The ability to then analyze, visualize and query the data through the Mosaic™ Platform will be extremely valuable, which will allow them to fulfill their mission and focus on better care and outcomes for patients suffering from pancreatic diseases."
Remedy has developed a pancreatic cancer-focused registry that will serve as the basis for this project. All of Remedy's products are built on its flagship Mosaic Platform, which offers the industry's most advanced clinical informatics solution. The Mosaic Platform delivers highly configurable, user-friendly registries that are designed to evolve with an organization's changing research needs without intervention from IT departments or outside technology consultants.
"We are very excited to move forward with Remedy Informatics to build our national patient registry for people suffering from pancreatic cancer, pancreatitis, and other pancreatic diseases," said Joseph M. Titlebaum, Esq., Chair of the National Pancreas Foundation. "Developing the registry on a technology platform like Remedy's will enable greater collaboration amongst researchers and our foundation. We've also been impressed with the ease and speed of data analysis through Remedy's software."
Founded in 1997, the NPF is a charitable foundation dedicated to providing hope for those suffering from all forms of pancreatic disease. Through a combination of seed grants and advocacy, the NPF has awarded more than $2.8 million to fund 81 groundbreaking research projects. Additionally, through its advocacy efforts and the research outcomes of grants it has awarded, the NPF has supported initiatives that have led to millions of dollars of additional research funding by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other institutions.
