Children's Hospital of Denver Collaborates With RemedyMD on Its Interstitial Lung Disease Research Initiative

Medical Registry Expected to Dramatically Accelerate Research Efforts for ILD

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - March 15, 2011) - RemedyMD, the leader in medical research software for life science, and The Children's Hospital of Denver today officially announce their agreement for implementing RemedyMD's OutcomeTrack™ -- a disease registry and outcomes tracking solution. OutcomeTrack will be used to accelerate the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric diffuse lung disease, through The Children's Interstitial Lung Disease Research Network (ChILDRN).

"Children with this rare lung disease are dispersed all over the world," said Robin Deterding, M.D., pediatric pulmonologist and ChILDRN organizer. "To optimize care, we need a web-based environment for physicians to enter patients into a single, anonymous and secured database to conduct research, track samples, and produce comparison data reports and to create a communication platform within which our network and patient foundations can interact. RemedyMD had the right product to meet our needs."

The Children's Hospital of Denver will use RemedyMD's OutcomeTrack to support the collection of data from participating organizations for collaborating on a research registry. RemedyMD's OutcomeTrack provides the pathway for participating clinicians to contribute, report, and analyze chILD data so treatment and cures can be developed for chronic pediatric diffuse lung disease. myHealthManager™, RemedyMD's secure patient portal, will provide the avenue for patients and families to communicate and share their common experiences.

The Children's Interstitial Lung Disease Research Network (ChILDRN) is a joint effort of the Children's Interstitial Lung Disease Foundation, the 3 Angels Memorial Fund for ACD Research, and other participants. The various organizations have come together with the goal of developing a platform with a set of tools for collecting data that could be used to increase knowledge, expand research, foster collaboration, and provide support for patients and families affected by rare pediatric diffuse lung disease.

Ann Gettys, Interim President of the Children's Interstitial Lung Disease (chILD) Foundation, says, "The chILD foundation is delighted to be included in the development of this registry. The RemedyMD product has surpassed our expectations. Not only does it provide the physicians in the ChILDRN network the tools they need to improve the care and treatment of diffuse lung disease all over the world, it also creates a portal for the families to ask questions and participate in the care of their children. The potential impact from this registry on our children's lives is limitless."

"We are delighted to be partnering with The Children's Hospital of Denver on this very important initiative," said Adam Slovik, CTO of RemedyMD. "RemedyMD's patient registry software will enable physicians, researchers, patients and their families to collaborate as they search for new and better ways to treat children with Diffuse Lung Disease throughout the world."

RemedyMD is hosting several upcoming free webinars demonstrating their technology. Topics, dates, and times can be viewed at http://www.remedymd.com/RemedyMD-Live-Webinars.php
