Datavant Leads in Health Data Exchange: Surpasses Digital Connections to 70,000 Hospitals And Clinics, Acquires Healthjump
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, September 26, 2023 – Datavant has now reached a milestone of more than 70,000 US hospitals and clinics in its digital network and enables the exchange of 60 million patient records per year. Datavant supports use cases ranging from continuity of care; to patient and attorney requests; to risk adjustment, to quality reporting and clinical research. Datavant also announces completing its acquisition of Healthjump, the leader in health data exchange for value-based care organizations, which has built connections to more than 1500 healthcare organizations participating in risk-bearing arrangements.
“Together, Datavant and Healthjump will dramatically accelerate the process of controlled, compliant clinical data exchange for healthcare organizations across the country,” said Pete McCabe, Chief Executive Officer of Datavant. “This is the underlying infrastructure that is necessary to close millions of care gaps every day, to allow better and more rapid clinical and operational decision-making, and to enable the move to care arrangements designed around improved patient outcomes.”
Datavant is the largest provider of Release of Information services in the country, serving more than 65% of the top 200 US health systems when they have a need to provide patient medical records to authorized requesters, including patients, providers, researchers, attorneys, and health and life insurers. Since its merger with Ciox Health two years ago, Datavant has emerged as the leader in digitizing the process of patient data exchange, laying down hundreds of APIs in collaboration with its health system partners, and quickly moving towards the majority of patient information requests being fulfilled digitally with the entire process overseen by our expert managed services team.
Healthjump is the leader in health data exchange for value-based care organizations, enabling its customers to pull standardized electronic health record (EHR) data from participating practices and clinics regardless of which EHR systems they use. This information is used by value-based care organizations to assess the quality, cost and outcomes of care being provided by those practices and clinics. “Healthjump has made it possible to get and use data that we otherwise would never have had. We’ve closed several thousand care gaps with that healthcare data and are looking forward to the future with Datavant” said Adam McClellan, Vice President, Strategic Development & Implementation at Community Care of North Carolina, Inc. Healthjump’s application is a guided thirty-minute installation that has been completed by more than 1500 practices and clinics, and is HITRUST certified. The combined company will operate under the name Datavant.
“We are thrilled to join the Datavant team,” said Cliff Cavanaugh, Chief Technology Officer of Healthjump. “We’ve been working in partnership for years in pursuit of parallel use cases, all limited by the same essential problems of health data liquidity. Healthjump has developed an elegant and scalable solution which can be implemented out of the box across Datavant’s customers and partners. Together, we can enable provider organizations to address their information release and exchange needs holistically, supporting the pursuit of high-quality, cost-effective care and improved patient outcomes.”
Datavant’s mission is to connect the world’s health data to improve patient outcomes. Datavant works to reduce the friction of data sharing across the healthcare industry by building technology that protects the privacy of patients while supporting the linkage of patient health records across datasets.
