Ventura Orthopedics and OBERD partner for Patient Reported Outcomes Data Collection


COLUMBIA, Mo., [January 5, 2023] /PRNewswire/-- Ventura Orthopedics will partner with OBERD for digital Patient-Reported Outcomes collection.

As one of the leading orthopedic specialty institutions on the west coast, Ventura Orthopedics has a strong commitment to improving the patient experience and utilizing data to improve outcomes. These commitments align well with OBERD's technological capabilities and data expertise.

OBERD's sophisticated technology will help Ventura Orthopedics engage patients electronically to capture as much meaningful data as possible. This data can be used to research better approaches to care, support shared decision-making, and ultimately improve health outcomes.

"We are delighted to partner with OBERD. Their ability to mold the platform into our current workflow is a big deal. We don't have to ask our staff to do the dreaded 'one more thing'," said Sarah Conlon, Director of Operations.

Integrating OBERD into Ventura Orthopedics' clinical flow will result in minimal workflow disruption – a benefit that appealed greatly to Ventura Orthopedics during its evaluation process. The OBERD system will automatically assign the relevant PRO questionnaire(s) to each unique patient at the appropriate timepoint.

"We are extremely fortunate to work with Ventura Orthopedics," said Ali Hussam, CEO of OBERD. "Their commitment to excellence and a good patient experience is evident. In addition to Patient-Reported Outcomes collection, we hope to roll out some of OBERD's new, more innovative offerings in the future."
