According to a recent press release, MITRE, an independent third party for the Medical Device Information Analysis and Sharing (MDIAS) Public Private Partnership (PPP), announced the addition of Atrium Health. The Charlotte-based health system joined the voluntary MDIAS collaboration between the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and stakeholders across the private sector that includes patients, hospital providers, and medical device manufacturers. The collaboration aims to analyze medical-device-related data to improve healthcare outcomes for consumers.
“As an early adopter—and the very first health system to join MDIAS—Atrium Health’s active participation will benefit patients, regulators, and the medical device ecosystem,” said Kim Warren, vice president of MITRE’s Center for Transforming Health, operator of the CMS Alliance to Modernize Healthcare, a federally funded research and development center (Health FFRDC).
Participants of MDIAS share relevant data with MITRE for analysis and development of recommendations for organizational and industry-wide performance improvement.
“Safety is at the heart of our organization. Delivering the safest care and highest-quality outcomes ensures we’re the most trusted choice for care. We’re also driven to advance the science of medicine in the most innovative ways possible. To that end, our team is dedicated to developing the most comprehensive provider-based research data set in the country. Our organization is excited for this opportunity to join MDIAS to help improve patient safety across the entire healthcare industry,” said Rasu Shrestha, MD, executive vice president and chief innovation and commercialization officer for Advocate Health. Atrium Health is part of Advocate Health.
