INDIANAPOLIS (July 7, 2020) – Indiana’s industry, government, health systems, academia, and digital health startups have tremendous data and technology resources which are driving transformative healthcare and life sciences work locally and globally. To capture all of those assets in a one-stop spot, BioCrossroads today published its Book of Data and Organizations, a directory of Indiana enterprises in the health-data intersection.
The directory includes snapshots of ten organizations who control data assets – data sets, data talent, and/or data technology. The organization profiles answer:
- Who has what data? How can this data be accessed?
- Where does the data analysis talent reside?
- What data technologies and capabilities exist?
- What are the key projects currently in process?
- What are the future projects and opportunities for engagement?
“Indiana has valuable and innovative life sciences and healthcare data initiatives and organizations that we’re highlighting through this endeavor,” said Darshan Shah, chief data officer, BioCrossroads. “Ideally, this resource reduces the need to seek health data assets outside of the state, to establish more ideal partnerships locally, and to attract outside organizations to collaborate with Indiana-based organizations.”
The Book will be continually expanded and updated both in number of organizations represented as well as depth of information for each organization. It will also grow to describe cross-organizational initiatives where partnerships are critical to success. Additional organizations and initiatives will be added on a rolling basis.
The Book of Data and Organizations is available at www.biocrossroads.com.
