Medstreaming and M2S Sign Licensing Agreement to Develop Fully Automated Interface for Seamless Transfer of Structured Data to Vascular Quality Initiative® Registry
Chicago, IL and West Lebanon, NH Jun 17, 2015 – Medstreaming, a leading medical informatics company specializing in workflow productivity technology and M2S Inc., a leader and innovator in technology for quality improvement in healthcare, announced the formation of a strategic licensing relationship to develop automated transfer of structured data to the Vascular Quality Initiative (VQI) Registry at the annual Society of Vascular Surgery (SVS) meeting June 17-20, 2015. Using the Medstreaming Clinical Data Management echo system for structured data aggregation, Medstreaming and M2S are focused on revolutionizing data capture and reporting for outcomes analysis.
The licensing agreement will allow hospitals, outpatient facilities, and vein centers who are participating in VQI Registries to significantly improve their data entry workflow and efficiency. Medstreaming’s workflow solution software will automate the capture of structured data elements on the web-based PATHWAYS form for the registry, including patient demographics and history, procedure details and follow-up.
Jeff Lord, Chief Technology Officer at M2S, says “Effective workflow integration is essential for the clinical registries on the PATHWAYS platform in order to streamline the data entry process for our clients. Our initial focus with Medstreaming will be on the integration for the Varicose Vein Registry. This will both strengthen the PATHWAYS platform and help our clients to capture the quality data they need to track outcomes.”
“Our collaborative effort with M2S and this innovative integration is designed to lower the costs associated with data capture and data aggregation in hospitals and outpatient offices”, said Wael Elseaidy, Medstreamings Co-Founder and CEO. “Through the use of specialty based workflow technology, we intend to significantly reduce the need for manual data entry while at the same time increasing the quality of the information transferred to the PATHWAYS Registry. This is something our clients have been asking us to accomplish for quite some time and we intend to deliver this additional value through our new strategic partnership with M2S,” said Elseaidy.
