San Francisco – Aug. 19, 2021 – Real Chemistry’s, the leader in uncovering undiagnosed and misdiagnosed patients via machine learning, and Datavant, the leader in helping healthcare and life science organizations securely connect their data, today announced an expanded partnership that will enable pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to connect de-identified first-party data to’s real-world data universe.

“Our strengthened partnership enhances our mission of accelerating the commercialization of precision medicine,” said Jonathan Woodring, Executive Vice President and General Manager at “By enabling the connection of clinical trial data, specialty pharmacy data, HUB data and natural history or registry data with broad claims datasets, the journey to diagnosis is shortened, therapies are more personalized, and clinical trials benefit from real-world insights while protecting patient privacy.”

Increasingly, biopharmaceutical companies are advancing gene therapies and precision therapeutics. The patient population eligible for these therapies is often difficult to diagnose, and, therefore, is underserved. Datavant connects’s real-world data universe, which includes over 300 million de-identified patient journeys and 65 billion anonymized social determinants of health signals. Linking these data streams supports the creation of customized machine learning models that will improve the discovery and mapping of the diagnostic and treatment journey of patients with rare and specialty diseases.

Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies partner with throughout the drug development lifecycle, from assessing the market for an orphan drug to identifying potential patients for clinical studies, to effectively bring treatments to market.’s advanced machine learning models leverage comprehensive granular real-world data assets for longitudinal evaluation. The partnership between Datavant and advances these offerings by enabling life sciences companies to de-identify and securely connect their own proprietary data to’s. These enriched, proprietary datasets will improve the training of’s machine learning models, adding increased precision to the difficult task of identifying small patient populations with acute medical needs.

A recent collaboration between Datavant and supported a biotechnology company’s patient identification program in hereditary ATTR amyloidosis (hATTR), which affects only 50,000 patients worldwide and reduces life expectancy by between 5 and 13 years. A multi-organ disease that affects each patient differently, hATTR is challenging to diagnose. created machine learning models using de-identified payer claims and genetic lab tests, then deployed the resulting insights in provider electronic medical record systems to accelerate the testing, diagnosis and treatment of patients with hATTR.

”As pioneers in identifying rare disease patient populations through machine learning, recognizes the value in connecting first-party data to real-world data for greater modeling precision,” said Travis May, President of Datavant. “We’re thrilled to partner with to advance life-saving specialty and rare disease treatments.”
