CERNER AND ZEG BERLIN RAISE AWARENESS TO ACCELERATE THE UNDERSTANDING OF ENDOMETRIOSIS, ADENOMYOSIS AND MYOMA
Overland Park, KS — Jan. 24, 2022 — Cerner Corporation (NASDAQ: CERN), a global healthcare technology company, and ZEG Berlin announce their intention to launch the LIDEAM Registry: Long-term International Dual-Source Endometriosis, Adenomyosis and Myoma Registry. This is led by the new Cerner EnvizaSM operating unit that offers data-driven solutions and expertise that helps bring remarkable clarity to life sciences’ and healthcare’s most important decisions. The new registry will help increase awareness and knowledge of these diseases, accelerate earlier diagnosis and improve disease management.
Millions of people worldwide experience debilitating pelvic pain and abnormal bleeding associated with chronic gynecological conditions. Complex symptom profiles, like the final diagnosis of endometriosis, adenomyosis and myoma (uterine fibroids), often lead to long diagnostic delays.
Endometriosis, adenomyosis and myoma are characterized by a diverse set of symptoms including pelvic pain, heavy menstrual bleeding, pain during sexual intercourse and infertility. Additionally, these diseases have a significant negative impact on people’s quality of life including their physical, social and or mental well-being.
“We are enthusiastic about this opportunity to help make a difference for people and improve patient outcomes,” said Michael Fronstin, Global Head of Clinical Research and Consulting, Cerner Enviza. “We welcome life sciences organizations to contact us to learn more or to join our governance board.”
LIDEAM is an international registry focused on people experiencing symptoms suggestive of the three most common chronic gynaecological diseases and those with a recent diagnosis. LIDEAM will collect patient reported and clinical data with the intention of deepening the understanding of the real-world impact from a patient and caregiver perspective.
“The unmet needs and burden for people suffering from these diseases is significant,” said Clare Barnett, chief operating officer, ZEG Berlin. “Launching a global registry will enable us to better understand these diseases, to increase awareness and to improve patient care.”
