PopMedNetTM is a scalable and extensible open-source informatics platform designed to facilitate the implementation and operation of distributed health data networks. PMN enables simple, efficient creation and use of distributed data networks, through a set of tools and web-based services that can accommodate any data model. It is optimized to facilitate distributed analyses of medical product safety, comparative effectiveness, quality, medical resource utilization, cost-effectiveness, and related population health activities. The system provides secure, customized private portals, query tools, and file transfer capabilities. It supports both menu driven queries and distributed analyses using complex, single use or multi-use programs, all designed to execute against local data resources.
The PopMedNet™ software can accommodate a wide range of network sizes and complexity, from single datasets held by only two organizations through multi-year projects encompassing dozens of organizations and dozens of data resources with millions of records.
Data partners exercise full control over the files they make available for querying, the results returned to requestors, and the individuals who are permitted to submit requests.
