MedMined Receives 2005 Outstanding Incubator Graduate Award from NBIA


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- MedMined, Inc., a medical information technology company, today received the Outstanding Incubator Graduate award in the technology category from the National Business Incubation Association (NBIA). The award recognizes MedMined's pioneering work in infection control and prevention and its innovative Data Mining Surveillance technology, which measures the incidence of hospital-acquired infections. The award was presented at the NBIA's 19th International Conference on Business Incubation in Baltimore. MedMined previously was recognized by the NBIA as the 2002 Outstanding Incubator Client in technology.


G.T. LaBorde, MedMined's chief operating officer, said, "It is an honor to receive recognition from the NBIA for a second time. The award underscores the positive impact that our automated data mining surveillance technology is having by reducing nosocomial infections across all areas of the hospital. The service allows infection control practitioners (ICPs) to focus infection-prevention efforts where and when they are most needed and reduces the human and economic toll of hospital-acquired infections. Healthcare facilities using the MedMined service have achieved a measurable 300 percent financial return in the first year of use."


In the United States, hospital-acquired (or nosocomial) infections affect nearly 2 million patients each year and contribute to approximately 88,000 deaths. MedMined employs artificial intelligence technology to continuously monitor hospital data for possible warning signs of hospital-acquired infections, allowing ICPs the opportunity to address an outbreak before it occurs.


MedMined's Data Mining Surveillance service combines ongoing review and analysis of infection-related data from hospital systems with clinical support and educational tools designed to facilitate meaningful change and process improvements and comply with state mandatory reporting requirements.
