Our Origin Story

Truveta began as an idea within Providence in 2018. They knew there were valuable needles of insights buried within the haystacks of data they managed – answers on how to best treat patients, cure diseases, and best serve their communities – yet they could not access them. After working on their concept, they realized two things: the data set needed to be much larger to statistically serve all patients and building a data platform to make sense of the data would require significant technical expertise and investment.

CEO Terry Myerson joined the Truveta mission in March 2020. As the COVID-19 pandemic began ravaging our country and our world, families struggled to safely protect each other with well-intended, but conflicting guidance. Physicians struggled to learn how to treat this virus as hundreds of thousands died. Life science companies struggled to staff clinical trials with enough diverse participants to effectively test and garner approval of life-saving vaccines. The world needed faster answers, clearer guidance, and the opportunity to learn from each other. It became clear – the world needed Truveta.

In September 2020, the company was founded with Providence, Advocate Aurora Health, Tenet Health, and Trinity Health. Soon after, with a vision of together Saving Lives with Data, innovative health providers like AdventHealth, Baptist Health of Northeast Florida, Bon Secours Mercy Health, CommonSpirit Health, Hawaii Pacific Health, Henry Ford Health System, Memorial Hermann Health System, Northwell Health, Novant Health, Sentara Healthcare joined in the formation of Truveta. Together, these health providers care for tens of millions of patients and operate thousands of care facilities across 40 states.
