SAN DIEGO, Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SpineMark Corporation, a spine care services organization that specializes in developing global Spine Centers of Excellence and Spine Research Sites, announced a partnership with PhDx Systems, Inc., an industry leader in creating clinical data management outcome solutions, and Millennium Environmental, experts in management system standardization for leading companies around the world.
Together, SpineMark Corporation, PhDX Systems Inc. and Millennium Environmental have developed a spine protocol that will implement a standardized model for care that measures outcomes, quality, patient thru-put, cost of care, administration and operation to insure best care practices, efficacy and accountability. With the Spine Protocol Management system, hospitals will be able to track outcomes, reduce cost and document quality for the services provided. PhDx has also developed new technology that uses applications on patient's mobile devices to capture real-time patient reported outcomes.
"SpineMark's Spine Protocol is a standardization of best management practices that results in transparency, data and compliance with global initiatives on quality patient care," explains Marcy Rogers, President and CEO of SpineMark Corporation. "Hospitals will not only meet, but also exceed current guidelines being developed by third party payors for designation of their network criteria. And, they will be able to objectively benchmark their data against literature, other centers and SpineMark's network."
The Spine Protocol Management System, which SpineMark is introducing to its centers, in the United States and abroad, is the first step in creating a standardized model of care in spine that can be replicated globally. The data collection system allows hospitals to better manage patient issues, reduce expenses, offer most effective and efficient care and most importantly be accountable for outcomes.
