The new company will retain the Datica name in its quest to foster secure data exchange.
Sansoro Health and Datica Health have merged, enabling the new company to offer a more comprehensive self-service platform for securing cloud-based applications and integrating patient data from multiple sources.
The new company will operate under the Datica name, according to an announcement today.
Dave Levin, M.D., co-founder and chief medical officer of Sansoro Health, told Inside Digital Health™ that Sansoro’s integration customers are interested in cloud and data applications, and Datica’s cloud host customers wanted to integrate more data.
“These solutions really go together,” Levin said.
Sansoro is known for its powerful clinical application programming interfaces (APIs). The merged company will build on that by extending the integration technology and broadening its offerings with APIs, FHIR compatibility and backward compatibility with legacy solutions.
“We want to have a fleet of integration tools, so customers are best equipped,” Levin said. “This is an expanded integration suite married with a platform that lets you pick any public cloud that meets security problems and deploy and exchange data in the cloud.”
Jeremy Pierotti, previously the CEO and co-founder of Sansoro Health and now CEO of Datica Health, said the product streamlines development and management of cloud-based applications.
The platform could help make development processes become frictionless and result in more secure solutions at lower cost.
Micky Tripathi, president and CEO of Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative and Datica board member, said that many chief information officers spend a disproportionate amount of time on compliance, which leaves less time for innovation. Essentially, developers have to manage a portfolio of tools to manage different pieces.
“What we’d like to provide to the industry is a comprehensive single set of tools that allows them to manage that seamlessly across all of those environments so that they can spend less time in the infrastructure and more time on the kinds of innovations that will improve people’s lives,” he added.
The platform provides integrated tools necessary for healthcare developers to pass audits and exchange data within electronic health records. It also provides end-to-end security on the cloud.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to merge our companies under a singular mission: To accelerate healthcare’s transformation to a data-driven future on the cloud by mitigating the complexity and the risk of using patient data,” Pierotti said.
“This is a powerful partnership that meets the infrastructure needs of today’s applications,” Levin said.
