Solution Will Help 26 Hospitals and More Than 400 Oncologists Enhance Breast Cancer Care and Clinical Excellence
ANN ARBOR, MI--(Marketwired - May 29, 2013) - ArborMetrix, Inc., a leading provider of real-time healthcare analytics, today announced that the Michigan Breast Oncology Quality Initiative (MiBOQI) selected its fully integrated, cloud-based registry and analytics solution to replace its legacy system. The 26-hospital Collaborative Quality Initiative (CQI) will implement ArborMetrix's technology to improve quality, safety, outcomes and effectiveness of breast cancer treatment across Michigan.
"When our existing vendor discontinued its product, it gave us the perfect opportunity to seek a more advanced, powerful and sophisticated solution," said Samuel Silver, M.D., Ph.D., project director at MiBOQI and assistant dean for research and professor of internal medicine/hematology-oncology at the University of Michigan Medical School. "After thoroughly evaluating half a dozen companies, we selected ArborMetrix because of their successful track record in converting and customizing legacy data. They offer the most proven, powerful, configurable and flexible tool, and they're willing and able to modify our database on demand. The fact that Dr. John Birkmeyer [the company's founder and Chief Scientific Officer] is a renowned quality and outcomes improvement researcher was one more factor that made it attractive for us to partner with them."
