Veradigm and Komodo Health Partner to Create the Largest Linked EHR and Claims Dataset for Life Science Research
Partnership combines Veradigm’s industry-leading ambulatory EHR data with Komodo’s Healthcare Map™, providing nearly 50 million linked, longitudinal patient records for a deeper understanding of the patient journey
August 21, 2019 CHICAGO — Veradigm, an Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) business unit, today announced that it has entered into a long-term strategic partnership with Komodo Health to advance life sciences research. Initially the partnership will focus on linking Allscripts’ industry-leading ambulatory EHR data with Komodo’s Healthcare Map™, which contains encounter data from more than 150 private and public payers. Using Komodo Health’s platform, the collaboration will enable Veradigm to provide a linked dataset containing a complete longitudinal view of nearly 50 million deidentified patients to support life sciences companies as they investigate new ways to reduce disease burden.
The linked dataset combines detailed clinical and patient lifestyle information along with cost and utilization data captured across all care settings. Veradigm’s model for real-world research is built on access to near real-time patient data, best-in-class analytics and seamless point-of-care programs. In support of Veradigm’s mission to simplify healthcare with data-driven insights and technology that can help manage cost and improve outcomes, the partnership with Komodo Health will enable Veradigm to develop new and creative real-world evidence solutions for its life science customers.
“Komodo has curated one of the largest sources of US healthcare encounters, which offers not just a comprehensive picture of patient journeys across the healthcare system, but a broad view of the US insured population,” said Tom Langan, Chief Executive Officer for Veradigm. “This relationship will enhance our ability to provide a comprehensive understanding of both clinical and economic health outcomes while enabling us to develop new innovative solutions for real world research.”
“Data increasingly must be the backbone of every decision and every product in healthcare – yet stakeholders across the healthcare ecosystem lack access to an accurate view of patient health, provider practices, and outcomes,” said Arif Nathoo, MD, CEO and co-founder of Komodo Health. “Veradigm is changing the game by delivering timely insights from complete patient journeys that will power new technologies and expand the ability of healthcare stakeholders to demonstrate value.”
By linking the largest ambulatory EHR for life science research dataset with Komodo’s Healthcare Map™, Veradigm leverages the strengths of each source to offer researchers opportunities to integrate patient history and behavior, detailed clinical symptoms and outcomes, patterns of drug and health services utilization, along with costs to individuals and payers.
