RemedyMD Disease Registry Software Selected for New Pediatric Obesity Registry at Children's National Medical Center

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Jun 20, 2011) - RemedyMD has been selected by the Children's National Medical Center to provide a disease registry to help further care of pediatric patients suffering from obesity. The registry will aid researchers and physicians as they seek to treat and cure diseases related to the condition.

Children's National Medical Center in Washington, DC has served the nation's children since 1870. Home to Children's Research Institute and the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation, Children's National is a Magnet® designated hospital and is consistently ranked among the top pediatric hospitals by U.S.News & World Report and the Leapfrog Group.

The new patient registry software from RemedyMD aggregates, harmonizes, and links together the organization's relevant data using the Mosaic™ platform, so it can use its powerful querying tools to research data regardless of source. The built-in OntologyManager™ can accommodate all major standards such as LOINC, CPT, ICD, SnoMed, UMLS, and others. Organizations searching for medical research software, including accountable care organizations, use a RemedyMD disease registry to solve the toughest health care IT research problems.

"Pediatric illness and disease is a cause near and dear to us, and having seen the impact our technology is having on research at other leading institutions, we are very excited to see what future breakthroughs Children's National Medical Center will achieve in this area," said Jim Hyde, president and chief operating officer of RemedyMD.
