Persistent Systems supports REACHnet’s efforts around patient-centered comparative effectiveness research
Persistent Systems supports REACHnet’s efforts around patient-centered comparative effectiveness research by having developed an innovative platform for data collection, medical record integration, patient engagement and recruitment, and trial management infrastructure.
Additionally, Persistent Systems, in partnership with REACHNet, presented at the HIMSS16 conference to demonstrate a highly scalable and interactive pragmatic trials infrastructure built around the learning health system concept for improving patient centered research and patient engagement. The presentations, focused on key features of the technical infrastructure produced by Persistent Systems and REACHnet, including the following:
Pragmatic Trial App Suite (PTAS) - An electronic medical record (EMR)-agnostic, tablet-based software system integrated in examination rooms that was designed to enhance and facilitate the capacity for conducting comparative effectiveness research.
Health in Our Hands (HiOH) – An initiative of REACHnet that acts a network for patients to engage them in research activities inside and outside the clinical setting through use of the PTAS. Patients can also receive research information, results, and participation outcomes through HiOH.
Global Patient ID (GPID) - Deduplicates, links and aggregates patient records without requiring data partners to share individually identifiable patient health records.
Robust Backend Infrastructure - Hybrid cloud based, Hadoop-powered big data infrastructure for massive scalability, reliability and improved performance.
