BHI and Datavant Enter Partnership to Enable Big Data and Analytics to Improve Healthcare
CHICAGO, May 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Blue Health Intelligence® (BHI®) and Datavant have announced a new partnership that will facilitate the linking of BHI’s industry-leading medical and pharmacy claims data and analytics capabilities with data from dozens of companies, nonprofits, and health researchers using Datavant’s privacy-protecting connectivity technology, with the goal of designing better interventions to improve health outcomes.
By combining BHI’s analytical capabilities and the nation’s largest medical and pharmacy claims repository with Datavant’s Patient Key solution, the partnership makes these joint solutions available to organizations across the healthcare system. Datavant’s software enables linking of de-identified patient records to seamlessly exchange data across an ecosystem of analytics and research.
