NIH backs tech linking trial data, patient records

The NIH has awarded San Diego-based Parity Computing a $150,000 Small Business Innovation Research grant to create software that can automatically link clinical trial results and patient records to help doctors make treatment decisions. Prof. Shlomo Argamon of the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago is collaborating with Parity's Dr. Chris Rosin on the project. "This grant supports the important work that Parity is undertaking to make evidence-based medicine relevant to the health of individual patients within the everyday cycle of care," said Steve Nathan, Parity's CEO, in a statement.
