Date:11/16/2012

SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to improve the quality of research and outcomes for the booming hip and knee arthroplasty market, Remedy Informatics, Inc., the leading provider of registries and research informatics software for Life Science, today announced the availability of RemedyJoint™, a comprehensive Total Joint Replacement (TJR) outcomes registry.

"It is universally accepted that orthopedics and arthroplasty are experiencing explosive growth in the United States and around the world," said Gary Kennedy, Founder and CEO of Remedy Informatics. "Couple the tremendous growth with the industry's efforts to improve the quality of joint replacement products and surgeries, and it is clear that having a product to track, analyze and improve results is needed. We believe a local total joint replacement registry for hospitals and surgeon groups is the best research and clinical informatics solution to drive comparative effectiveness research, organizational quality initiatives and support outcomes reporting to state and national registries."

Built on Remedy Informatics' flagship Mosaic™ Platform, RemedyJoint is designed to meet the stringent needs of orthopedic surgeon groups, hospital orthopedic departments and implant manufacturers conducting post-marketing trials. RemedyJoint enables researchers and clinicians to efficiently track and gather patient demographic, medical history, procedure, complication and patient reported outcome data across multiple surgeons, surgeon groups and hospitals. Once collected, the data can be analyzed using robust pattern recognition tools to further efforts to optimize patient outcomes and reduce the cost of care.

Remedy recently partnered with the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR) to help establish their national hip and knee replacement registry, powered by Remedy's Mosaic Platform. According to Rob Ludlow, vice president of Product Management at Remedy and current RemedyJoint product manager, "We are encouraged by the American Joint Replacement Registry's progress in standing up a national total joint replacement registry and creating a platform to track U.S. arthroplasty outcomes and implant survivorship. We designed RemedyJoint to complement the AJRR and enable out-of-the-box TJR outcomes reporting — while still offering orthopedic surgeons and hospitals the flexibility of a local total joint replacement outcomes registry that can be configured to support their research interests and quality objectives."

Ludlow's vision for RemedyJoint is to deliver a "flexible, user-friendly total joint replacement research and outcomes management solution that aggregates and harmonizes data from disparate sources, enables multi-site collaboration, and can be tailored to support clinical workflows, detailed research interests, and quality improvement initiatives. Orthopedic surgeons, clinical staff and researchers will now be able to use cutting-edge research informatics tools to see and parse their TJR outcomes data like never before."

With RemedyJoint orthopedic surgeons and hospitals are able to:

  • Track orthopedic outcomes & implant survivorship for quality improvement initiatives.
  • Capture patient reported outcomes measures (PROMS) which serve as a powerful, early predictor of TJR procedure success & implant survivorship.
  • Enable comparative effectiveness research for TJR to help inform surgeons and hospitals about optimal practices and reduce variation in care delivery.  
  • Create custom forms & data elements to tailor application for institutional needs (e.g. metal ion concentration).
  • Support performance-based reimbursement negotiations.
  • Enable multi-site collaboration and clinical trials.
  • Deliver out-of-the-box outcomes reporting to the American Joint Replacement Registry. 

"Given the significant projected growth of total hip and knee replacements over the next ten years, the emergence of episode-based reimbursement and projected TJR capacity constraints, the value of RemedyJoint cannot be overstated," said Ludlow. "RemedyJoint captures and organizes all of an organization's total joint replacement outcomes and positions orthopedic surgeons and hospitals to enable sustainable growth by taking an evidence-based approach when improving patient outcomes, streamlining care delivery and negotiating performance-based reimbursement."
