Beaumont forms hybrid research and device lab Beaumont Health System plans to open one of the nation’s first hospital-based combination cardiovascular research and physician training centers at the Royal Oak campus this fall, as part of its mission as a center for medical education.
The Beaumont Center for Innovation and Research in Cardiovascular Disease (CIRC) will conduct medical device research and serve as a training center for physicians, nurses and technical staff, says Robert Safian, M.D., Beaumont’s director of CIRC and director of the Fellowship Training Programs in Cardiovascular Diseases and Interventional Cardiology.
“One of the purposes of the center is to promote research and develop relationships with the medical device industry so new cardiovascular technologies come to Beaumont,” says Dr. Safian. “We already conduct clinical trials, but this center will help us expand our relationships with medical device companies, and transfer these technologies into the community.” Taking ortho research to higher levelsNew computer program collects data for studies With more than 14,000 orthopedic surgeries a year at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak, there’s plenty of information available to build an impressive research program. All that was left to do was capture the information. Enter Ortech.
“It’s a Web-based, software program that physicians are using in the operating rooms,” says Kevin Baker, Ph.D., manager, Orthopaedic Research Labs. “During surgery, surgeons enter data about the patient, the surgical procedure and the orthopedic implants used. We then compare procedures, devices, outcomes and more to learn how effective treatments are Using Ortech won’t just help with research. Reimbursements, quality control and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid reporting are all being increasingly tied to outcomes, and this program will help track them. “Basically, Ortech acts as a registry to improve research processes before, during and after surgeries,” says Dr. Baker. “We do so many ortho surgeries here each year, we have a lot of useful data to collect and Ortech offers an • they have been diagnosed with stage • they are not taking any prescription operating rooms for joint replacement and spine procedures. But the hope is to extend the program into physician offices, so data will be available from the time a patient goes to the doctor to their last follow-up appointment. This information could help with pain relief, range of motion and traditional outcomes measures. Eventually, all subspecialties of orthopedics including sports medicine, trauma, hand and upper extremity, foot and ankle, shoulder and elbow and pediatrics will utilize Ortech.
Implementation of Ortech was made possible through philanthropic support, including a generous gift from the Sidney and Madeline Forbes family.
