The health care field generates an enormous amount of data every day. There is a need, and opportunity, to mine this data and provide it to the medical researchers and practitioners who can put it to work in real life, to benefit real people. Many organizations can fulfill part of this process, but none of them are equipped to begin with raw data, develop an idea and move that idea directly into a practice setting.
That’s why the Pittsburgh Health Data Alliance is so unique. The University of Pittsburgh brings expertise in medical research, Carnegie Mellon University in world-class computer science and machine learning. UPMC brings deep data, the clinical setting and a track record of successful commercialization.
