Truveta, a leading EHR data and analytics company, and Mathematica, a policy research and data analytics consultancy, today announced a partnership to advance medical research in the areas of public health surveillance, health equity, and maternal health. By engaging with leading public sector agencies and philanthropies focused on these areas, Truveta and Mathematica will improve patient care and outcomes – including health equity – across the United States.

“Truveta’s mission is saving lives with data. With this partnership with Mathematica, we will be able to advance medical research in many ways, informing important public health conversations, advancing health equity, and addressing maternal health,” said Ryan Ahern, MD, MPH, chief medical officer and co-founder, Truveta. “By combining Truveta’s complete, timely, and clean EHR data that is representative of the diversity of the United States with Mathematica’s experience in public health and policy, we can advance healthcare for Americans.”

Truveta delivers the most complete, timely, and clean electronic health record (EHR) data from more than 30 health systems, empowering researchers with scientifically rigorous, fast, and compliant analytics to study safety and effectiveness, improve patient care, and train medical AI. Through this partnership, Truveta will work with Mathematica to provide Truveta Data and advance real-world, evidence-based research in the public sector, including its continued work with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Health Data for Action research program, focused on making healthcare more affordable and equitable.

Mathematica applies its expertise in data, methods, policy, and practice to developing digital and data analytic solutions that help health care and mission-driven organizations make smarter, faster decisions. Mathematica’s commitment to improving public well-being extends to the development of free tools that make data and evidence more accessible to all. The company’s innovative solutions are supported by a wide range of nationally recognized health policy experts and access to rich data assets.

“There are critical gaps in the data currently available to answer important questions,” said Alex Bohl, director of data innovation, Mathematica. “With the timeliness and completeness of Truveta Data, Mathematica can now partner with critical public sector agencies and philanthropies to advance patient-centered outcomes research and address some of the most important issues in healthcare today.”
