Salt Lake City, April 29, 2012
Leading provider of registries for life science and translational research, Remedy Informatics, has announced that King Saud University's Obesity Research Center, located in Saudi Arabia, has selected Remedy’s Investigate, to track all research activities at the center.
Investigate is the world’s first and only integrated research management system.
"The opportunity to work with and support a client like King Saud's Obesity Center is thrilling for us because their mission aligns perfectly with ours," said Gary Kennedy, founder and CEO of Remedy Informatics.
"King Saud's researchers are working to deliver innovations that will benefit patients in Saudi Arabia, and hopefully around the world. This is precisely what our software is designed to do. The goal is to make discoveries and then innovate solutions for patients," he said.
Investigate is designed to improve research efficiencies in life science and translational research, thereby accelerating discovery and bench-to-bedside innovations. Built on Remedy's Mosaic Platform, Investigate integrates multiple research systems into one platform, a statement from Remedy Informatics said.
Implemented on a center-wide level, Investigate will enable King Saud researchers to integrate data from disparate sources, analyse it with powerful pattern recognition tools and deliver biomedical innovations.
It also offers flexibility that will enable researchers to easily adapt patient registries as their research needs evolve over time, the statement said.
The Obesity Research Programme is multi-disciplinary, collaborative research in the field of obesity and its related disorders. Its main objective is to expand the understanding of obesity towards obtaining effective preventive and therapeutic strategies.
The university has established several research facilities/laboratories with state-of-the-art equipment and technologies to accomplish this mission.
