PatientCrossroads and Informedika Announce Strategic Partnership to Integrate Lab Results and Rx Data into CONNECT Open Patient Registry
Date:4/23/2013

SAN MATEO, CA (PRWEB) April 23, 2013

PatientCrossroads and Informedika today announced a strategic partnership in which they will explore the automated inclusion of patients’ laboratory test results and prescription information with PatientCrossroads patient registries.

The combination of Informedika’s data - lab results and medication history - with PatientCrossroads’ CONNECT open-access patient registry would make it easier for patients to more easily provide detailed disease-related information about their conditions. The combination of patient provided data with lab and medication history would enable a more complete picture of disease to help medical researchers working to find causes and treatments, and pharmaceutical companies developing new diagnostics and medications.

“Informedika is the leading aggregator of diagnostic and prescription data, streamlining and simplifying interactions between physicians and testing labs,” said Kyle Brown, founder of PatientCrossroads. “Tapping into the natural workflow of physicians via Informedika would allow the CONNECT registry to include richer data, leading to a more complete understanding of diseases and conditions. Informedika complements PatientCrossroads’ conviction that medical advances are made when results are shared, when information is collected in a standardized way, and when patients remain firmly at the center of the process.”

“As a trusted, third-party gatekeeper of de-identified patient provided medical history, PatientCrossroads plays an important role in understanding disease natural history,” said Steven Yaskin, founder and CEO of Informedika. “Informedika operates between physicians and testing labs, and PatientCrossroads acts between patients and researchers. Combining our two networks would be like interlocking rings, extending the reach and effectiveness of both.”

The PatientCrossroads CONNECT Registry Program is a shared, open-access patient registry able to collect data on any disease, from the most rare to more common diseases. In CONNECT, patients control their data, opting in and consenting to share their de-identified information. PatientCrossroads is responsible for ensuring physicians and clinicians, medical researchers, pharmaceutical companies and disease foundations all have equal and equitable access to the de-identified patient information.

The Informedika Network provides true bi-directionality for both requisitioning and processing diagnostic results, medical supplies ordering and mHealth device provisioning. Informedika offers diagnostic data ordering and results from any lab in US including phlebotomy, pathology, genetics, and radiology as well as Rx, wheel chairs etc. DME, mHealth devices, and most kinds of information not typically available in EMR products today in "one pane of glass." Informedika provides this 360-degree view of the patient free to physicians and other authorized clinicians.
