FREMONT, CA and KANSAS CITY, MOJanuary 17, 2017

The Children’s Hospitals Neonatal Consortium (CHNC) has selected Velos and its flagship technology platform Velos eResearch for their visionary data management and multicenter initiatives.

CHNC is a benchmarking and quality improvement organization comprised of 32 Neonatal Intensive Care Units at leading children’s hospitals across North America. The consortium provides a benchmark of care and short-term outcomes for infants with uncommon neonatal disorders.  In 2010, CHNC collaborated with the Children’s Hospital Association to launch the Children’s Hospitals Neonatal Database (CHND).  The partnership with Velos will position the consortium to achieve new improvements at the patient level.

“Our evolving needs require a technology platform that can dynamically manage our large-scale datasets and support our registries as well as facilitate easy analysis and visualization of data,” said Jacquelyn Evans, M.D., President, Founder and Chair of the CHNC. “With its comprehensive functionality and configurability, we believe Velos eResearch will be a strong fit for CHNC and its member organizations.  The project will enable us to better provide key outcome metrics, simplify data access, help us improve care, advocate for medically-complex infants, and provide important information for their families.”

“We are thrilled to support CHNC’s comprehensive registries for transforming neonatal care,” said Priti Sahai, M.D., Senior Vice President of Velos. “CHNC’s needs and Velos’ strengths are well aligned. Velos eResearch has inherent capabilities for multi-registry, multi-site management, electronic data capture, and reporting. The vast array of Velos eResearch’s capabilities will not only serve the needs of CHNC for a dynamic registry, but also provide actionable insights into data collected over time.”

“CHNC is a special organization and a true champion of quality and safety improvement and related standards for children around the world,” says John McIlwain, CEO of Velos.  “Velos is honored to have the opportunity to support CHNC in this important international, multicenter initiative.”
