BELLEVUE, Wash. – May 17, 2023 – Today Truveta, a leader in electronic health record (EHR) data and analytics, announces the expansion of its community to include new life science partners, including Reprieve Cardiovascular and SK Life Science, joining previously announced pioneers Pfizer, Boston Scientific Corporation, and Alpine Immune Sciences. Truveta also welcomes new health system members, including Inova Health System and Sanford Health.
Truveta is a growing health system collective that together provide more than 17% of all daily clinical care in the US. Truveta is now trusted by more than 40 leading healthcare and life science customers to improve patient care, accelerate R&D, and inform public policy.
With today’s announcement, Truveta also shares it is working with leading researchers on timely data for their studies, including Anupam B. Jena, MD, PhD, of Harvard University and the Freakonomics MD podcast, who recently published using Truveta Data in JAMA Network Open, and researchers with the National Cancer Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health.
Truveta also recently provided Truveta Data to The Wall Street Journal and Reuters on timely public health news about neonatal abstinence syndrome and Alzheimer’s genetic testing respectively.
With research insights taking up to 17 years to reach a patient’s bedside, researchers and clinicians have historically been challenged to learn how to improve patient care with data. Costs are out of control for providers and patients. Knowledge fragmentation has led to inequities across populations. Born out of the pandemic and the need to learn more rapidly than ever before, healthcare and life sciences have come together in the Truveta community to speed time to insight to advance medicine and address health equity.
“Truveta was founded by innovative health systems with the shared mission of saving lives with data,” said Terry Myerson, CEO at Truveta. “This growing community connects healthcare with leading-edge life science organizations to advance this mission through Truveta’s unique connection of data, people, and ideas. Together, we can improve patient care, accelerate R&D, and inform public policy.”
Truveta Data are the most complete, timely and clean data on US health, with complete EHR data to study patient care with representative and precise populations. Truveta Data are linked across health systems and augmented with integrated social drivers of health (SDOH), mortality, and claims data for a complete view of patient journeys. Truveta Data are de-identified and made available for research daily.
