OBERD is a software innovation company focused on bettering healthcare outcomes through data acquisition across a variety of metrics, real-time reporting, automation and patient engagement that empowers a comprehensive feedback loop. End user experience - via human-computer interaction expertise, universal design principles and top technical performance - is the centerpiece of our multi-dimensional and integrated suite of services. Founded by a team at the University of Missouri in 2010, OBERD is firmly rooted in science and tools to elevate your practice by meeting a versatile range of objectives – from substantiating payor negotiations and marketing to optimizing patient communication and research.
The Outcomes Based Electronic Research Database (OBERD) platform initially aimed to streamline Patient Reported Outcome Measure (PROM) capture and related burden surrounding multi-center study implementation and analysis. OBERD remained nimble to conform PROMs - alongside electronic intakes, consents, patient education, satisfaction and customizable data points - as standard of care in order to obtain provider and organization-specific insights necessary to manage performance goals. Thanks to our skilled and dedicated staff, OBERD has become the ultimate end-to-end SaaS system for practice improvement and outcomes investigation. A few utilities beyond the most common include care pathways, wearables and MIPS modules.
The OBERD vehicle enables every patient touchpoint to become immediately useful information that can also be later leveraged – all without workflow disruptions. Our latest advancements include proprietary AI enhanced computer adaptive testing (CAT) methodology and robust benchmarking features. As demonstrated by 35 patents, innovation, predicated on providing actionable knowledge, is at the heart of everything we do.
Much of our history has concentrated on the orthopedic market, and our client list entails many of the most prestigious practices in the industry. This focus yielded the world’s largest orthopedic data repository with about 5 million active patients and over 1 billion data points (both stats growing by the second). We are now applying our learnings to gastroenterology, cardiology and OBGYN as a start, and extending to every surgical specialty in order to build the world’s largest multi-specialty database.
We’ve won client trust and recognition through our unwavering commitment to the security, usability, and reliability of OBERD. For example, OBERD is HITRUST certified. HITRUST CSF® is the most stringent level of security leveraging nationally and internationally accepted standards and regulations such as GDPR, ISO, NIST, PCI, FFIEC, FTC and HIPAA to ensure a comprehensive set of security and privacy controls.
With keen vision on the future of evidence-based medicine and patient wellbeing, OBERD products will continue to revolutionize healthcare. OBERD has tremendous momentum and is well poised to holistically meet the evolving demands of a data-driven world.
