QualityMetric Announces QM Certified Scoring Program

Company unveils landmark program to help clients avoid costly and

potentially embarrassing mistakes when collecting outcomes data

LINCOLN, R.I., July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- It seems that every month there is a news story questioning the integrity of outcomes data in clinical trials.

Minor mistakes in the programming code or simple formatting errors have lead to incorrect scores and misinterpreted results, in some cases leading to millions of dollars in lost revenue.

"Unfortunately, the do-it-yourself approach can, and has, resulted in significant data quality problems." says Mark Kosinski, MA, Senior Scientist and Director of QualityMetric's Outcomes Insight Consulting(TM) Group. "There are alarming examples of what can go wrong and the results can be very costly.

QM Certified Scoring is available via th
