American Society of Hematology Selects Prometheus Research for Unprecedented Clinical Registry Initiative

ASH Registry will advance state of care for blood cancers and other hematologic diseases

NEW HAVEN — The American Society of Hematology (ASH) has announced their selection of Prometheus Research to build and support ASH Registry, a comprehensive data registry infrastructure capable of facilitating scientific research across the broad spectrum of blood diseases. The solution will demonstrably advance ASH’s mission of helping hematologists conquer blood diseases worldwide. The Society aims to further the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders affecting the blood, bone marrow, and the immunologic, hemostatic, and vascular systems, by promoting research, clinical care, education, training, and advocacy in hematology.

With more than 17,000 members from nearly 100 countries, ASH is the world’s largest professional society serving both clinicians and scientists who are working to conquer blood diseases. The ASH Registry will leverage Prometheus’ RexRegistry technology—the industry’s only “open core,” research-grade clinical data registry platform—and nearly 20 years of clinical research informatics expertise.

“We chose Prometheus Research based on their unique approach and their track record of building world-class health registries. They have both the software and the expertise to empower ASH’s vision of a transformative data infrastructure capable of repeatedly delivering meaningful improvements in the lives of patients and families affected by blood diseases,” said Melissa Francisco, MBA, Director of ASH Registry.

The Prometheus registry approach is predicated on delivering scalable methods and technologies that are responsive to evolving industry data standards and uses while preserving data fitness and reusability. Its RexRegistry platform employs both legacy and state-of-the-art data acquisition pathways, and can dynamically transform registry data into the information model best suited to address new questions and analyses.

“Prometheus is the ideal informatics partner for the ASH Registry,” said Leon Rozenblit, JD, Ph.D., Founder and CEO of Prometheus, “and we are optimistic about the progress that will come from our working together to conquer rare blood disorders, including hematologic malignancies.”
