VeraQ ™, Clinician-Led and AI-Enhanced, Turns Unfiltered Point-of-Care Data into Healing, Clinically-True Qdata ™
Posted: October 20, 2021 at 3:46 p.m. CDT
SAN FRANCISCO, 20 October 2021 / PRNewswire / – Verana Health today announced the introduction of VeraQ™, a population health data engine that connects the dots between unfiltered health data with integrity to improve the quality of information for researchers. VeraQ is clinician-led and artificial intelligence (AI) enhanced to securely power a data integrity feedback loop of nearly half a billion point-of-care raw healthcare encounters . Ultimately, VeraQ enables healthcare organizations and life science companies to accelerate medical innovations that promote quality of care for clinicians and quality of life for patients.
The VeraQ engine begins with de-identified electronic health record (EHR) data that is exclusively entrusted to Verana Health by more than 20,000 healthcare providers through specialty medical companies: the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) and the American Urological Association (AUA).
VeraQ connects and deidentifies rich ambulatory data across multiple therapy areas, over 70 different EHR systems, and over 90 million patients with seven years of longitudinal data, while preserving the clinical context of provider point-of-care documentation. health care . Then, structured and unstructured raw data is harmonized and tokenized between EHRs and medical specialties, as well as with other sources, such as medical claims, pharmaceutical claims, images and mortality data. The anonymized data is then stored, protected and retained under the supervision of a clinician as well as through natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning (ML).
The result is clinically true Qdata™: data modules adapted to each disease, designed to confidently generate commercial information and rigorously inform research results. Qdata covers three therapeutic areas – ophthalmology, neurology and urology – and reflects the deep journeys of patients through robust demographics. Qdata helps unlock quality research information throughout the lifecycle of drug and medical device development, from clinical trial site and subject identification to post-market evidence generation and testing. analysis of opportunities.
Qdata is uniquely suited to help answer complex research questions that require observational data traditionally found in physician notes, which may include critical information such as symptoms, diagnoses, or outcomes. . Through VeraQ’s NLP-guided curation coupled with the human touch of physician-informed context, millions of records with free-form text become meaningful and can be distilled into usable and valuable Qdata variables.
“Health care begins and ends with the patient. Therefore, high quality, accurate and reliable anonymized longitudinal data is essential to achieve the goal of producing impactful clinical research and positive health outcomes, ”said Sujay jadhav, CEO, Verana Health. “We are proud to launch VeraQ ™ and Qdata ™ to ensure the integrity of information derived from unfiltered health data to enable our life science partners to accelerate medical innovations and healthcare providers. ” improve the quality of care. “
VeraQ also powers Qualified Clinical Data Registries (QCDRs) for Verana Health’s medical society partners, including the American Academy of Ophthalmology IRIS® Registry (Intelligent Research in Sight), AAN Axon Registry®, and the AUA quality register (AQUA). For the IRIS registry and the Axon registry, it enables compliance with Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) reporting standards, which are measures of the quality of care required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS ). Participating in a QCDR saves thousands of dollars annually to contributing medical practices; in fact, the IRIS registry has helped participating ophthalmologists save more than $ 1 billion penalties from 2017 to 2020.
Additionally, VeraQ enables practices to improve patient care by helping identify patients who may qualify for a clinical trial, which can speed up trial activity for investigating physicians and sponsors of the science of science. life.
“Electronic health record data is the purest reflection of factors contributing to clinical outcomes and VeraQ brings value to healthcare providers by generating quality information from this rich point-of-care data to help to inform their care, ”Jadhav said. “The medical community can be confident that Verana Health handles anonymized clinical data with the same care and integrity that physicians provide to their patients. “
