PicnicHealth and Komodo Health today announced a partnership to support real-world evidence research programs for complex illnesses like multiple sclerosis and hemophilia. With this partnership, PicnicHealth will enrich its database of de-identified patient medical records with data from Komodo’s Healthcare Map™. The combined breadth and depth of real-world patient data will help support research efforts to shut gaps in care, address unmet patient needs, and streamline clinical development efforts to deliver life-saving therapies to appropriate patients.
By integrating PicnicHealth’s data with Komodo’s Healthcare Map, PicnicHealth’s Research Platform will offer differentiated insights on complex therapeutic areas which will have variable impacts on population subsets. For heterogeneous diseases like MS, controlled clinical research settings are limited within the scope of insights they supply. At an equivalent time, real-world studies have historically faced challenges in gathering the required data in these therapeutic areas where patients are moving between providers and healthcare organizations, which each use different systems of record.
To address these shortcomings, PicnicHealth is tapping Komodo’s Sentinel platform to collect journeys of thousands of patients with a given condition into one research database. The series of initiatives is already generating insights that layer demographic and geographic distributions of patients with analyses of patient journeys and care patterns to unlock new learnings about patients with previously difficult-to-study diseases.
PicnicHealth provides patients ownership of their medical data by aggregating each patient’s medical records into a comprehensive and accessible dashboard. In July 2020, the corporate launched the PicnicHealth Research Platform, a real-world evidence-based biomedical research program to explore the progression of diseases, including MS, red blood cell disease, and hemophilia, among others.
Komodo Health has created a new standard for real-world data and analytics by pairing the industry’s most complete view of patient encounters with enterprise cloud technologies that connect the dots between individual patient journeys and large-scale health outcomes. Komodo’s Healthcare Map unlocks a deeper understanding of the healthcare experiences of quite 325 million patients. Additionally, its Sentinel platform allows clinical, commercial, and HEOR Life Sciences teams to integrate data from the Healthcare Map with their proprietary datasets to trace detailed patient behaviors and treatment patterns that unlock critical strategic insights.
PicnicHealth may be a healthcare technology company that partners with patients, porting their complete medical records into an easy-to-use online application. The platform gives patients unprecedented access to and control over their medical records and, with their consent, the chance to contribute this valuable data to further research projects. Founded in 2014 by Noga Leviner and Troy Astorino, the corporate partners with several of the world’s largest biopharma companies and academic research institutions. PicnicHealth has raised quite $35M from Felicis Ventures, Amplify Partners, Foresite Capital, Refactor Capital, and Y Combinator.
