Remedy Informatics Selected to Provide Technology Platform for DKMS, the World’s Largest Bone Marrow Donor Center
SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Remedy Informatics, Inc., the leading provider of registry-based informatics software for life sciences research and healthcare delivery, announced that DKMS, the world’s largest bone marrow donor center, has selected Remedy’s informatics solutions to solidify its position as an innovator and leader of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation worldwide.
“Without question, DKMS is the kind of client where our powerful analytics and pattern recognition technology will have the greatest impact,” said Gary Kennedy, Founder & CEO of Remedy Informatics. “We can provide DKMS with solutions that will enable them to improve both donor-recipient matching and, finally, blood cancer patients’ chances for survival.”
Headquartered in Germany, DKMS is a network of organizations that are actively committed to fighting against blood cancer, diseases of the hematopoietic cell system, and a variety of other forms of cancer. Since 1991, DKMS has been searching for and collecting donor information to match with blood cancer patients around the world. Today, the network boasts more than 3.9 million donors globally and continues to grow each year.
“It is our organization’s goal and research focus to give blood cancer patients worldwide a second chance to live,” said Prof. Dr. Gerhard Ehninger, DKMS Co-Founder and Director of the Department of Internal Medicine I, University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus, Dresden, Germany. “The only way we can continue to accomplish our mission is by adopting and implementing effective new and innovative technologies. Remedy’s software will not only enable us to collect and manage large amounts of donor and patient data, but also to query that data in search of better, more effective treatments–and, one day soon, a cure. We are confident that this partnership will allow us to develop better systems to accomplish our goals and fight this terrible disease.”
Remedy’s innovative informatics products are built on its flagship Mosaic(TM) Platform, which offers the industry’s most advanced clinical informatics solution. The Mosaic Platform supports Remedy’s highly configurable user-friendly registries that are designed to evolve with an organization’s changing research needs over time without intervention from IT departments or outside technology consultants.
“With our informatics solutions in place, DKMS will have an unprecedented 360-degree view of data patterns because of our technology’s ability to aggregate data from multiple sources onto one platform,” said Kennedy.
As part of the agreement, Remedy will deploy its Mosaic Builder(TM) tools, which will allow DKMS to build additional registries “at will” for research and quality improvement purposes. DKMS will also be the first European client to use The Informatics Marketplace (TIMe(TM)), a next-generation, web-based collaboration solution from Remedy Informatics that brings together various data sets, registries, applications, analyses and other content relevant to an organization’s clinical or translational research efforts.
Remedy Informatics serves a wide range of leading life sciences, translational research and healthcare institutions around the world.
