NorthPoint Domain and NYU Vascular Associates Partner to Develop New Generation of Care Delivery Informatics Instruments
Date:5/5/2008

BOSTON, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- NorthPoint Domain, an IC Sciences company, announced today a partnership with New York University Vascular Associates at NYU Langone Medical Center to develop a comprehensive suite of Internet informatics instruments for advanced specialty care delivery. Based on a shared commitment to excellence in vascular interventions, the partnership addresses the critical need to provide clinicians with new tools to inform, engage, and shepherd patients throughout the care continuum. By leveraging the Internet's ubiquitous availability, care delivery informatics instruments allow vascular specialists to reach out to consumers and community practitioners to raise awareness about new advances in early detection and treatments in vascular disease.

The partnership will allow for customized development of care delivery instruments for NYU's vascular group, which has one of the largest vascular surgery teams in the country and decades of experience treating thousands of patients. Dr. Mark A. Adelman, Chief, Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, commented, "We are excited to be at the forefront of deploying these new medical information systems, and anticipate that our clinicians' use of the resulting applications will advance their ability to effectively partner with patients, inform referrers, and learn from aggregate patient data." Rony Sellam, President of NorthPoint Domain, added, "Our informatics instruments allow clinicians to engage patients at advanced levels, thereby delivering more potent medical services to patients."

A burgeoning scientific evidence base supports a link between quality care, clinical outcomes, and patient engagement. These studies also indicate that one of the most effective forms of patient engagement involves physician-guided interactive computer applications that deliver personalized content, messaging, and care support tools. NorthPoint Domain's patient engagement instruments provide this functionality, allowing clinicians to prescribe applications from nearly 100 patient content modules covering specific conditions, tests, treatments, and risk factor management. These materials are created and kept current by NorthPoint Domain's vascular physician advisors, who are leaders of national and international renown.
