In 1999 members of the Recombinant team began
working on the Research Patient Data Registry (RPDR)
at Partners HealthCare, one of the nation’s leading
integrated healthcare systems. This work allowed us to take our data
warehousing expertise and apply it in the clinical research context.
Over time, the RPDR served as the model for what is now the
NIH’s i2b2 open source workbench, which
Recombinant continues to support.
In 2004 the Quality Data Management (QDM) team led
by Dr. Jonathan Einbinder at Partners HealthCare engaged Recombinant to
build a solution to meet the needs of enterprise reporting challenges
across the delivery network. The resulting software included a data
warehouse called the Quality Data Warehouse and a reporting system,
called Report Central, designed to achieve the goals of delivering
consistent, high-quality patient care. The applications were built
through collaboration between Partners Clinical and IT teams and
In December 2007 the groups entered into an
agreement to make the custom software applications available for other
hospitals and integrated delivery networks. Through this agreement,
Partners continues to use and expand the capabilities of the reporting
systems while Recombinant has packaged the software and markets, sells
and supports the packaged offering at sites seeking to achieve similar
patient care objectives.
Today, Recombinant offers an integrated suite of healthcare data
warehousing and clinical intelligence products as well as clinical intelligence consulting
services to clinicians, researchers and CIOs.
