MedStar Health applauds the announcement of Truveta’s Platform that seeks to advance patient care with data

November 9, 2021

Today, 20 health system partners of Truveta are one step closer to the goal of saving lives with data with the unveiling of its platform.  Earlier this year, MedStar Health joined 16 other healthcare systems as founding members of Truveta, the first health system led company that offers scientists and clinicians access to real-time, de-identified clinical data from across the country. 

“Finding answers to questions quicker and with greater accuracy is critical to advancing medicine. Having access to a vast de-identified dataset that Truveta is offering opens up tremendous opportunities,” said Neil Weissman, MD, FACC, FASE, chief scientific officer at MedStar Health and president of MedStar Health Research Institute. “Investigators can use data analytics to uncover insights on equity, quality and safety measures across diverse populations. With the knowledge from this data, physicians can develop new therapies and provide better care to our patients, sooner.”

Truveta’s platform currently represents more than 16% of U.S. clinical care across diagnoses, demographics and 42 states, with plans to keep growing.

“We’re proud to be a member and look forward to seeing the possibilities that this platform offers come to life,” said Weissman. Please visit the Truveta website to learn more.
