Truveta plans to build its data platform on Microsoft's cloud computing service, Azure, the companies announced Wednesday.
Truveta launched earlier this year as a for-profit data company founded by 14 health systems, including Altamonte Springs, Florida-based AdventHealth and Renton, Washington-based Providence. Since then, three more health systems—Baylor Scott & White Health, Columbia, Maryland-based MedStar Health and Arlington-based Texas Health Resources—have also joined.
Truveta's vision is to create a platform that houses de-identified health data from all 17 of its health system owners, including data from medical records, images and genomics. That data platform will run on Azure, where customers—like researchers and pharmaceutical companies—will be able to access aggregated data and use Azure's artificial-intelligence tools.
Patient data will be brought into the Truveta platform daily.
As part of the deal, Microsoft will invest an undisclosed amount into Truveta, the companies said.
