September 21, 2005 / Research Triangle Park, NC — Clinipace, Inc., a software company focused on late-stage clinical research studies and registries, announced today that the Center for Children’s Healthcare Improvement (CCHI) has chosen Tempo, Clinipace’s software platform for its clinical research and quality improvement programs.
“We are very pleased to be working with Clinipace to support our growing research needs,” said Dr. Peter Margolis, Co-Director at CCHI. “Tempo will not only enable us to consolidate several different projects, but also help expand physician participation by making our studies and projects accessible to a broader network of healthcare providers.”
CCHI, within the Department of Pediatrics at UNC-Chapel Hill, leads various quality and research initiatives designed to support preventive services and developmental assessments for children, while advancing healthcare for children across the country. Since 1990, CCHI has used collaborative learning opportunities to improve care for children with asthma, ADHD, cystic fibrosis and other special healthcare needs at over 500 practices in North Carolina and 700 practices nationally. These initiatives include disease and drug registries, clinical trials, and quality improvement programs involving provider collaboration and education.
“Data collection and collaboration among a distributed network of healthcare providers serving children is the backbone of CCHI programs. Clinipace’s web-based research platform will support an increasing number of providers that want to participate in registries and other important collaborative efforts,” added Margolis.
“We are excited to be affiliated with an organization like CCHI, whose sole interest is the health and welfare of children in our country,” said Jeff Williams, CEO of Clinipace. “Their work is important, and we are honored that we were chosen to support the expansion of programs conducted by CCHI and its affiliates. This partnership, and the diversity of projects supported by CCHI, further illustrates how a powerful and flexible web-based research platform like Tempo can improve clinical research initiatives.”
This partnership will initially involve the transition of existing registries and quality improvement programs to the Tempo platform, as well as planning for new initiatives with CCHI partners, such as the American Board of Pediatrics.
