The University of Utah's College of Pharmacy's Pharmacotherapy Outcomes Research Center (PORC) will use Inovalon's Distributed Analytics solution to directly design, test, and execute sophisticated data mining, queries and analyses to further the research goals of PORC. PORC will analyze data with Inovalon's Medical Outcomes Research for Effectiveness and Economic Registry (MORE2 Registry®) which contains more than 8.5 billion medical events and relevant data pertaining to more than 540,000 physicians, 220,000 clinical facilities, and 111 million unique members.

Inovalon's Distributed Analytics provides an industry-leading platform that brings together meaningful data with powerful analytics to bridge the gap between clinical and technical know-how and enable deep investigation into root cause, improvement and reporting strategies. The solution provides on-demand access to the MORE2 Registry, facilitates analytics with its easy-to-use graphical user interface, delivers speed significantly faster than standard data extraction methods and provides research organizations greater flexibility and acceleration of research objectives.

"Access to a comprehensive healthcare dataset is key when conducting significant academic research," said Dan Rizzo, Chief Innovation Officer at Inovalon. "We are pleased to be working with the University of Utah to support their academic initiatives and continue to improve the healthcare landscape."

"Our goal is to improve patient care by conducting outcomes research studies and disseminating study results to patients, providers and healthcare decision-makers," said Diana Brixner, Executive Director of PORC at the University of Utah. "The integration of Inovalon's innovative data analytics solutions furthers this goal by enabling our researchers to conduct meaningful studies in a fraction of the time it took historically."
