NEW HAVEN, Conn., Nov. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Prometheus Research has teamed with the Women's Health Research Institute(WHRI) at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine to develop an extensible clinical registry architecture for supporting its mission to address the underrepresentation of women in scientific and clinical research
"Our work with Prometheus integrates several existing tools and cumbersome workflows into a single system capable of supporting our evolving needs—and the needs of our growing network of participants and collaborators," said Nicole Woitowich, Ph.D., Associate Director of the WHRI. "Having a registry that can keep pace with us is essential to our continued success."
Prometheus used its comprehensive clinical data registry platform, RexRegistry, to underpin the new Illinois Women's Health Registry, which enabled the rapid creation of a similar Illinois Men's Health Registry. This ability to quickly respond to clinical research data management needs was one plus to choosing Prometheus as their registry partner.
These two registries were created to be the tools that provide researchers easier access to individuals interested in participating in research studies. Clinical studies enable researchers to further investigate health issues that may affect men and women differently. These two registries deliver a foundation that encourages the study of sex differences that affect the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease.
"We are very pleased that our registry solution will accelerate the work of Northwestern and the WHRI to address one of the most pernicious factors in health research while advancing the scientific community's understanding of sex-based differences in patient outcomes," responded David Voccola, a co-founder of Prometheus Research.
