Questions to ask your data registry partner
Our core philosophy is that the power in data collection and analysis lies in consistency and longevity. The big question you should be asking your data registry partner, in seeking a successful data collection and analysis program, is, will they be around for the long-term?
And because we encourage you to ask that question, we welcome the opportunity to answer it.
We help orthopaedic surgeons and administrators become evidence-based. This idea inspired the creation of Ortech, and it’s what drives us today. 2015 marks our 10th year as an incorporated company, but in fact our technology has been in use for over a decade and a half.
We won’t start from the very beginning. You can learn more about that here. In the last five years, we’ve grown from a staff of two to a staff of 14, adding more every few months. Our client list has grown to nearly 200 healthcare organizations across North America ranging from a one surgeon clinic to state-wide registry initiatives like California Joint Replacement Registry and Michigan Arthroplasty Registry Collaborative for Quality Improvement. Our revenue growth over this period has surpassed 750 percent.
From the very beginning, Ortech has been self-sustained, making us lean and efficient. Cash flow, rather than debt, has supported the business expansion and allowed us to build a strong team in a new office. And, our financial consultants with Deloitte support us in business decisions while we remain focused on our clients. As we look forward, we remain committed to investing in resources in order to meet the needs of our growing client list.
Trust, security, and privacy
This is the heart of our business, and we’re proud to be constantly evolving to meet and exceed security and privacy best practices. This has been tested and validated by several third party reviews. We strengthen our commitment with every security review we do for each prospective client by continually updating our security policies and procedures to meet the needs of an ever changing security landscape. With our growth has come significant investment in new hardware and networking infrastructure to improve application availability on a daily basis as well as recovery time in the event of a disaster.
This is what instills confidence from large-scale, statewide registries to independently run clinics. As business owners, we value our staff and work to ensure they have the tools needed to service our clients and continually improve our applications. We are also proud of the fact that our clients know their Ortech Client Services Representative by name. We will never shift to a Help Desk model. We built this business on personal support and we will grow the company the same way.
