How are you tackling the challenge of scattered healthcare data?

We're early on. I have high hopes for Fire because it would be the types of information that our labs will have. Patient history is something that Fire lends itself very nicely to. I find it really encouraging that there are so many companies now in the space. The thing that I found most daunting is in the absence of these aggregators, you actually have to connect to all of the systems and basically have an army of project managers. While we have some direct connections, my money is on being able to work with companies that continuously and consistently expand their reach in terms of what type of data they have. Obviously you have to choose a partner that's secure. You want to be able to trust their privacy practices and their security practices above all else. Hopefully they also continue to be successful in growing their reach. Most companies only have control of portions of the United States, and it makes it difficult to ensure that you have reliable match rates. We're hoping that as the ecosystem matures, we'll get improvement there.

I have found with this company TriNetX, you can really reduce your time to clinical trial and figure out how to design it, because you can run a lot of these queries and get answers right off the platform. You can download the data as well and use it for analysis, but the platform itself gives you the ability to go ahead, put in queries,  and get insights. It helps to connect you to hospital systems that might have specific types of patients or the diversity in the population that you're looking for.
