BIOMAX EMPOWERS MEDICAL AND ECONOMIC SUCCESS AT CIRO+
Recent business analysis revealed that the CIRO+ Center of Expertise for Chronic Organ Failure realized an approximately 30% efficiency gain per patient. Since 2006, the number of patients treated at CIRO+ clinics doubled, patient outcomes improved by 50%, while costs went up by only 25%. Professor Dr. Emiel Wouters, Chairman of the CIRO+ Board of Directors, links the success to the center's ongoing alliance with Biomax: "Implementing our ambitious, multidisciplinary approach only became possible through the collaboration with Biomax. The Biomax BioXM system has been in routine use at CIRO+ clinics 24/7 for the past two years and has allowed us to scale up most efficiently." Read more here.

APPLICATIONS
IMPLEMENTING SYSTEMS MEDICINE WITHIN HEALTHCARE
Scientists and practitioners from ten of Europe's leading health-related organizations published systems medicine approaches and guidelines for translation into healthcare which have been shown to work in respiratory medicine. The collaborative efforts of the Genome Medicine paper's thirteen authors stem from the Biomax/CASyM symposium, Translating Systems Medicine into Practice. The paper discusses proof-of-principle examples of systems medicine and proposes a high-level implementation strategy. Read more.
IMPACT OF COMORBIDITIES ON COPD REHABILITATION — BIOMAX, VISCOVERY PLAY KEY ROLE IN PATIENT STUDY
Scientists at CIRO+ and Biomax have published results describing the impact of objectively identified comorbidities on COPD rehabilitation outcomes. The Viscovery® data mining software was used to create clusters of disorders co-occurring with COPD and explore changes in patients’ exercise performance and health status after pulmonary rehabilitation. The Mesquita et al (2015) paper is one result of the ongoing cooperation between Biomax and CIRO+ to provide patients with customized treatments that improve therapy outcomes.

CONNECTING AIR POLLUTION WITH ASTHMA — HOW BIOMAX INTEGRATION, HARMONIZATION AND MANAGEMENT HELP
Early exposure to air pollution associates with asthma, but not rhinoconjunctivitis throughout childhood and adolescence. A highly collaborative, multi-year, European Union-funded project, MeDALL (Mechanisms of the Development of Allergy), was able to publish corresponding results in November 2015 in The Lancet Respiratory Medicine. Biomax and experts from 22 other academic and industrial institutions took a holistic, systems medicine approach to generate novel knowledge surrounding allergies. The Biomax BioXM™ Knowledge Management Environment is used to structure and semantically integrate the diverse information provided by the consortium. Learn more at the Biomax Website.

SEASON'S GREETINGS
We would like to thank our clients for making 2015 the most successful year in the history of Biomax. We experienced double-digit growth rates in all business areas and expansion of our client base in two dimensions: geographically and across disciplines. Our global reach expanded with the establishment of our headquarters in the United States to serve the Americas and Asia. The diversity of our client base expanded as our core technology, the BioXM™ Knowledge Management platform, was embraced in the life sciences, healthcare and beyond.

This made 2015 the most satisfying year in the history of Biomax, as well. Many of our clients recognized the profound potential of using systematic knowledge management (KM) to better understand complex systems and handle Big Data. Biomax saw this potential realized first hand, helping new customers establish sustainable KM in their organizations and guiding many of our long-term customers in expanding their KM efforts into new areas. We thank our clients for the confidence they have in us as a collaborative partner in realizing their most pressing objectives.

Satisfied clients are our best measure of success and we’re excited to see where knowledge management will take them (and us!) in 2016. This is our wish for you too.

How can Biomax help you make 2016 your most successful and satisfying year to date?
