Bon Secours, Sentara join 12 health care organizations forming data company
Truveta to offer data for more rapid research capabilities
Bon Secours and Sentara Healthcare announced Thursday they have joined a group of 12 additional health care providers to form a new company, Truveta, which will offer data insights for patient care.
Spurred by the rapid research needed to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, Truveta will create a new data platform using artificial intelligence and machine learning to allow the 14 health care systems to learn from each other and allow for larger populations from which to study health care data. In total, the health care systems provide care for tens of millions of patients and operate thousands of facilities across the U.S. All data will be de-identified to maintain anonymity.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us how much the world needs to learn faster, so we can better serve our communities,” Truveta CEO Terry Myerson said in a statement. “Our vision is to improve lives with data. We want to help researchers find cures faster, empower every clinician to be an expert, and help families make the most informed decisions on their care.”
The group also includes AdventHealth, Advocate Aurora Health, Baptist Health of Northeast Florida, CommonSpirit Health, Hawaii Pacific Health, Henry Ford Health System, Memorial Hermann Health System, Northwell Health, Novant Health, Providence health system, Tenet Health and Trinity Health.
Truveta will be advised by a board of governors and health provider leaders will offer strategic, scientific and operational advice on ethics, health equity, data integrity and clinical outcomes.
“We believe the Truveta platform can help improve health equity and advance personalized medicine,” Myerson said in a statement. We are honored to be partnering with innovative and world-class health providers in this pursuit.”
