Remedy was also recently mentioned in two other important Gartner research reports, "Convergence of Healthcare Information Creates Opportunities for Life Sciences,"(2) and "Translational Medicine Still Has Barriers for Connecting Life Science and Healthcare Environments."(3) (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120206/SF47874LOGO) The Gartner "Cool Vendors" in Life Sciences, 2012, report issued on April 27, 2012, highlights five technology vendors in the life sciences that are innovating by providing "tools that permit insight-driven approaches leveraging data and managing several key leverage points in life sciences." Gartner recommends that life science organizations "examine the potential for leveraging scientific data using semantic tools and visualization." Remedy's technology is recognized in this report as innovative, impactful and intriguing.
Gartner's Convergence of Health Information report describes how "technology is transforming how healthcare is delivered and, in the process, creating immense sources of digital data." Gartner recommends that participants in the healthcare ecosystem "develop a strategy to address big data implications as various sources of research, clinical and healthcare information converge. Consider policy and access considerations and analytics tools for extracting value." Gartner identifies patient registries as an example of a technology solution that empowers this data convergence.
In its report Translational Medicine Still has Barriers, Gartner describes the practical technical challenges that limit the advancement of translational medicine. Gartner highlights the need to effectively manage collaboration among researchers and the difficulty in generating actionable data. The report references Remedy as an example of a vendor that enables "extending disease databases across partners and teams can help align and glean data between internal datasets and drug registries." "We are honored to be included in these Gartner analyst reports, but more importantly we are thrilled with the way that leading institutions across the life science research landscape have embraced registries as key part of their efforts to improve the effectiveness of their research during the past year," said Gary Kennedy, Founder and CEO of Remedy Informatics. "For years we have seen the data management challenges faced by life science researchers and have invested heavily in developing registry technology that would enable them to aggregate, harmonize and analyze their data much more effectively and efficiently so that these researchers can significantly accelerate the pace of new discoveries. Our goal from the very beginning has been to permanently, tangibly, and measurably improve the effectiveness of life science research. We believe registries are exactly the right tool at the right time to enable translational researchers to aggregate and analyze their data in ways never before possible so they can identify unseen patterns and, ultimately, generate powerful new insights into how to improve patient outcomes." Remedy Informatics offers a wide range of registry products built on the MosaicT Platform, which enables researchers to integrate data from multiple disparate sources and analyze that data with powerful pattern recognition tools. The Mosaic Platform's unsurpassed flexibility also enables life science researchers to easily adapt their registries as their research needs evolve over time and to analyze their data quickly and efficiently without needing to rely on IT department or technology vendor resources.
Remedy serves a wide range of leading Life Science and Translational Research institutions across the country, including, SAIC-Frederick, Inc., the operations contractor for the National Cancer Institute's Frederick, Md. campus, the Bariatric & Metabolic Institute and the Heart & Vascular Institute at the Cleveland Clinic, the American Joint Replacement Registry, Baylor Health Care System, UC Davis Healthcare System, the Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah and many more.
