Syntegra Partners with Institute for Health Metrics to Enable Faster, Easier Data Access for Healthcare Innovation


SAN FRANCISCO and MANCHESTER, Mass., December 2, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Syntegra, a leader in the generation of synthetic health data, and the Institute for Health Metrics (IHM), a nonprofit hospital data collaboration, announced a strategic partnership to advance the large-scale data use for healthcare innovation. The synthetic data resulting from this partnership represents a unique opportunity to use high fidelity patient-level data for the development, testing, demonstration and implementation of innovative technologies, such as machine learning. without the traditional risks of patient confidentiality. and the associated heavy governance requirements.

A key element of this collaboration, a joint offering of synthetic DSE data from Syntegra and HMI is now available under license on the AWS Marketplace. Constructed from approximately six million unique patients with over five years of health systems history across the United States, this synthetic data is a statistically accurate representation of the underlying data, but cannot be linked to real patients, which means clients can share and access them easily.

Beyond patient privacy, Syntegra’s market-leading generative approach enables personalized data augmentation, including expanding small cohorts and outcomes of interest, or altering demographic and demographic compositions to improve algorithmic fairness when building predictive models or using other advanced analytics.

“This collaboration is an exciting opportunity to align the shared missions and complementary capabilities of Syntegra and the IHM,” said Michael D. Lesh, SM MD FACC, Founder and CEO of Syntegra. “Access to comprehensive medical data is a major barrier to innovation in healthcare, and we look forward to working with the HMI team to make synthetic data more readily available. The ultimate goal is to enable the rapid adoption of technology to provide better solutions for patients. “

“We are delighted to collaborate with the Syntegra team to fully realize the value of clinical data in improving patient care, while reducing the overhead and associated risks that hamper innovation,” said John H. (Joe) Knowles, Jr. President and CEO of the Institute for Health Metrics (IHM). “The development of realistic synthetic data promises to expand and accelerate the use of clinical data for many healthcare use cases.”

About Syntégra
Syntegra unlocks the promise of health data by using revolutionary machine learning models to enable simplified access to high-quality, privacy-protected data. The result? Realistic but not real synthetic data that matches the statistical accuracy of the underlying data, but cannot be linked to any real patient, making the data easily shareable without compromising patient privacy. Syntegra’s pre-trained and ever-evolving model – the Syntegra Medical Mind – is built from statistical models of health data structured across modalities, meeting the diverse needs of stakeholders, including health systems, life science and digital health companies, payers and clinical research organizations.
