QualityMetric recognizes MedNet Solutions as the first QM Certified Scoring Partner for clinical trials
LINCOLN, R.I., April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- QualityMetric Incorporated announced today that MedNet Solutions, a global life sciences company specializing in clinical study management systems, is the first company to qualify as a QM Certified Scoring Partner. QualityMetric developed the QM Certified Scoring Partner program to address a major concern for many in the life sciences industry - the accuracy and integrity of patient-reported outcome(PRO) data.
Survey administration mix-ups, data entry mistakes, and mathematical miscues are a few of the common errors in administering PROs during clinical trials. These kinds of errors have cost companies millions and delayed the introduction of new treatments. While PROs are powerful tools that provide valuable and necessary clinical trial data, simple formatting errors or minor programming mistakes can easily lead to incorrect survey scores and misinterpreted results.
"When it comes to measuring health outcomes, the intake, scoring, and reporting of unimpeachable PRO data is crucial to QualityMetric and our clients. Toward this end, we developed the QM Certified Scoring Partner program to recognize industry leaders with the same commitment to excellence," says Gus Gardner, President and COO of QualityMetric. "We are proud to announce that MedNet Solutions is the first life sciences company to qualify for this program."
MedNet Solutions is "QM Certified" for survey administration, data scoring, and reporting of the SF-12v2(R) Health Survey. QualityMetric has determined that MedNet is administering the survey forms appropriately, has the latest and most accurate scoring algorithms in place, and is using QualityMetric's standardized reports.
"MedNet is proud to be QualityMetric's first Certified Scoring Partner," stated John M. (Rob) Robertson, President and CEO of MedNet Solutions. "Our certification underscores MedNet's commitment to providing our biopharma and medical device customers with flexible, easy-to-use, and high quality clinical study solutions that encompass all vital clinical data, including patient-reported outcomes."
