Supplier Spotlight® highlights the unique skill sets and service offerings of our vast supplier network. Below is an interview with Veradigm, an integrated data systems and services company dedicated to simplifying the complicated healthcare system with next-generation technology and solutions, transforming healthcare from the point-of-care to everyday life.
What is your company’s mission?
Our Mission is to “Create healthier lives by generating and providing insights that change the delivery of care”.
As a top provider of Electronic Health Record (EHR) software, Veradigm, an Allscripts business, along with Allscripts has clients across the healthcare ecosystem – from independent physician practices to large health systems and is uniquely positioned to leverage patient data to address the needs of the Life Sciences industry. With this innovative approach, real-world research data and insights are both an output of care delivery and also provide additional knowledge to improve the quality of the care provided.
What products and services do you offer?
We offer a wide range of research-ready real-world databases, an analytic platform, point-of-care research solutions, deep clinical registries and research consulting services. We have close relationships with the healthcare practices that provide our data, which keeps us informed of how to better serve them and their patients. We leverage these point of care insights as we design and execute projects for our Life Sciences clients
What problems do you solve?
We help to answer fundamental questions around the healthcare that we all consume and rely on: Does a biopharmaceutical product provide the desired outcome? Is it safe? Is it a good value? What are the gaps in our current understanding? We do this by tapping into real world care delivery workflows — providing access to near real time EHR data, as well as engaging providers and patients during research opportunities.
What are the most innovative tools and technologies that you offer?
We have a large, diverse real-world patient database (deidentified electronic health records from ~60 million active patients per year) that supports a wide range of research questions and can be linked to additional sources of real-world data. We are developing StudySource, a point-of-care platform to engage our providers and patients in research opportunities and execute studies through the clinical workflow. This platform reaches providers and patients well beyond the current U.S. centers of research, and will enable diverse groups of patients, who have never before had the opportunity, to participate in research. We also continue to develop innovative analytic approaches, such as natural language processing and machine learning, that leverage our real-world data, to address pressing research questions and knowledge gaps.
What are your competitive advantages?
Our position as a life-sciences facing business unit within an EHR company gives us a unique advantage for generating real-world data and then using that data for real- world evidence generation; our position keeps our research grounded in clinical reality, and our nationwide scale gives us relevance. We provide an extensive ambulatory EHR database in the US. and our research is based on data that we collect and curate, which gives us a unique end-to-end perspective.
Who are your clients?
Our clients consist of biopharma companies, life science service providers, the government, as well as the providers and patients they serve who use our point of care systems.
What new products and services are you developing in 2021/22?
We are constantly enhancing our core data and research offerings. In 2021/22, we will continue to expand our data footprint with new linkages and capabilities while furthering our goal of bringing research to the point of care. Our StudySource platform will bring research to practices previously left out of traditional study recruitment.
Where are your laboratories and/or offices located?
Everywhere! We operate virtually with associates located around the world, in addition to our headquarters in Chicago.
