Art Sedrakyan, M.D., Ph.D. receives substantial funding from the US Food and Drug Administration to lead the creation of a novel Coordinated Registry Network (CRN) for women's health technologies.

Dr. Sedrakyan will collaborate with the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT and National Institutes of Health/National Library of Medicine to facilitate the CRN creation in partnership with early stage registries developed by professional societies. The project will address the safety and effectiveness of health technologies used to advance women's health. An important component of this project will be the linkages of registries with claims data (e.g. Medicare), available state data and PCORNet clinical data networks when appropriate. The CRN will facilitate advancement of current registry infrastructure through development of structured data capture (SDC) and will aim to enrich both registry and linkable data infrastructure for devices/interventions used to treat or manage women's health conditions. This pilot project will serve as infrastructure for evaluation of medical devices and reduction of complexity and some costs of conducting comparative effectiveness research.
