ACORN Continues Success in Oncology Data Warehousing With Accumulation of Nearly 50 Million Data Observations

MEMPHIS, Tenn., June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Accelerated Community Oncology Research Network(TM), an oncology-focused CRO and research network, announced today that its Oncology Data Warehouse has accumulated nearly 50 million data observations from over 110,000 oncology patients contained in its data warehouse. Integrating patient-reported outcomes (PROs), electronic medical records (EMR), claims data, and laboratory information systems, garnered from community oncology practices nationwide where 85% of cancer care is provided, the warehouse contains demographically diverse data, offering reliable information on treatments and outcomes to payers, financial institutions, pharmaceutical / biotech companies, and community oncology practices.

"Our data warehouse is now mature enough to support longitudinal or cross- sectional analyses comparing practice patterns, toxicity, and outcomes in large groups of patients undergoing treatment for a broad range of tumor types," according to Ed Stepanski, Ph.D., Chief Operating Officer. "Additionally, several years of archived PACE System PROs provide a critical component to our Oncology Data Warehouse, allowing us to systematically analyze patients' symptom burden and quality of life, making our warehouse unique among all oncology data repositories."

Analytic data from this large-scale oncology data repository has been presented at many major oncology-related conferences and published in peer- reviewed medical journals worldwide. Furthering the field of oncology health informatics, ACORN's data warehouse has been used in numerous projects that address quality of care, patients' quality of life, overall health outcomes and the cost of care.

"Determining the most effective and least toxic treatment regimens in actual clinical practice, as opposed to a clinical trial, is a valuable end result from the data warehouse," observes Steve Coplon, CEO. "ACORN will soon double the number of unique patients in the warehouse. The warehouse runs as close to real time as is needed for projects we conduct."

ACORN will exhibit at the annual Drug Information Association meeting in Boston, June 22-25, 2008. Senior level ACORN executives will be present to discuss ACORN's Oncology Data Warehouse as well as its CRO services, Guardian EDC, and network of community oncology practices.
