Convergence CT offers a combination of products and services that support the collection, management, and use of healthcare data supporting patient data analysis and medical research. For advanced data collection and management, Convergence CT has developed its Clinical Data Warehouse (CDW), an innovative product suite which creates and manages patient data repositories for healthcare organizations. The CDW enables healthcare organizations to have a secure patient data repository that automatically downloads data from one or more data sources, separates Protected Health Information (PHI) and de-identified patient data, encrypts the data, and provides access to this data by researchers and analysts through a secure, web-based management system.
Emphasizing the “convergence” of rich clinical data with advanced information technology and analysis, Convergence CT is able to offer a fresh and innovative approach to accelerating medical research, clinical development, and departmental analysis. The Company’s solutions offer improved efficiencies and actionable analytic intelligence for healthcare organization data management and research for global markets.
Convergence CT's Clinical Data Warehouse is designed to address patient confidentiality, healthcare analysis, and patient recruitment issues that healthcare organizations conducting research, Pharmaceutical and Biotech companies face when developing new products and conducting clinical trials. The software takes extracted PHI from a wide variety of healthcare systems (for example, pharmacy and admissions systems, and laboratory systems, etc.) consolidating it into a secure, centralized location. Security features of the CDW protect the identities of patients and physicians, while tracking all activity into and out of the patient record. Not only has this product found its niche within healthcare research, but has also gained considerable interest in healthcare organizations’ IT departments as a way of controlling and protecting the health information of its patients.
The Convergence Global Research Network provides a single point of contact to accelerate clinical trial placement by linking providers and patients with research opportunities in a highly interactive and efficient manner. The network will identify the most effective cohorts for clinical trials within the membership, and coordinate activities with research sponsors and investigators. Participating Global Research Network sponsors, in turn, gain access to a robust clinical population that is accurate, reliable, and current.
Convergence CT also offers data management and data analysis services to Pharmaceutical and Biotech companies as well as healthcare organizations. Convergence CT’s experience in working with large databases of detailed patient-level data, including lab results and medication orders (both brand and generic named medications), exhibits a significant level of expertise in dealing with the organization and analysis of this level of data, expertise that is invaluable to Pharmaceutical, Biotech, and other healthcare organizations.
