RemedyMD Selected as Medical Software Provider by Methodist Dallas Medical Center for Knee and Hip Joint Registry

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Apr 11, 2011) - RemedyMD has been selected by the Methodist Dallas Medical Center to provide a disease registry to help further care to patients suffering from knee and hip joint problems. This registry will aid researchers and physicians as they seek to restore mobility and quality of life to their patients.

Methodist Dallas Medical Center serves north Texas as a leader in advanced and sophisticated medical care with world-class medical education and residency programs. It is also the main teaching and referral center for Methodist Health System and one of the leading teaching and referral hospitals in all of Texas. With over 2,400 employees and 700 volunteers, the Methodist Dallas Medical Center provides quality health care to over 175,000 per year.

RemedyMD aggregates, harmonizes, and links together the organization's data using the Mosaic™ platform, so it can use these 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 health research systems, including accountable care organizations, use RemedyMD's medical research software to solve the toughest health care IT research problems.

"We are delighted to work with Methodist Dallas Medical Center to deliver a joint registry. Knee and hip replacement is an expensive procedure that can be made much more effective by aggregating and harmonizing data from all sources," said Gary D. Kennedy, ceo of RemedyMD. "We have delivered several registries related to orthopedics, so a joint registry is a perfect extension to our existing product set."

  • The ability to link together data that may be contained in myriad spreadsheets or databases
  • Technology to harmonize all data through an ontology so all data are consistent and research-ready
  • Tools for setting up and managing multiple studies and experiments, and
  • Robust tools and applications to mine, query, and analyze that data

Other organizations using RemedyMD registries include Wisconsin's Blood Research Institute, Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, Children's National Medical Center, UC Davis, University of Maryland School of Medicine, and many others.
