Data cloud specialist Snowflake has launched its Healthcare & Life Sciences Data Cloud, said to be a single, integrated, and cross-cloud data platform that eliminates technical and institutional data silos.

Healthcare & Life Sciences Data Cloud is intended to allow organisations to securely centralise, integrate, and exchange critical and sensitive data at scale

Customers including Anthem, IQVIA, Komodo Health, Novartis, Siemens Healthineers, Spectrum Health, and others, are using Healthcare & Life Sciences Data Cloud to to deliver improved patient outcomes and care experiences, optimise care delivery, and enhance clinical and operational decision-making, the company said.

And life sciences organisations such as Novartis are using it to improve omnichannel engagement, accelerate time-to-market, and collaborate more closely than ever with their healthcare partners.

"At Novartis, we are focused on reimagining medicine to extend people's lives," said Novartis global head of digital platform and product delivery Loïc Giraud.

"To do this, we must put data and data science at the heart of everything we do. Snowflake's Healthcare & Life Sciences Data Cloud is helping us turn our data into incredible sources of insight by accelerating our ability to ingest, curate and share data in a timely manner that wouldn't be possible with other solutions. Snowflake is helping us get our patients faster access to the medicine they need."

Industry support for the Healthcare & Life Sciences Data Cloud includes applications from Health Catalyst, Strata, Iqvia and others; data sets from Compile, Equifax, Invitae, Iqvia, PRECISIONxtract, SameSky Health and others; integrations from companies including Alation, Amazon Web Services, Dataiku, H20.ai and ThoughtSpot; and consulting and services from Cognizant, Deloitte, Infosys, NTT Data, phData, SDG and others.

"The Snowflake Healthcare & Life Sciences Data Cloud can unlock the next generation of innovation in the industry by enabling organisations to take advantage of borderless data access while ensuring strict data governance, security, and privacy compliance," said Snowflake healthcare and life sciences industry principal Todd Crosslin.

"The entire industry can benefit from this live, connected ecosystem to get access to the data they need when it's needed. Snowflake is helping healthcare organisations toward their goals of achieving better outcomes for patients, customers, partners, and their businesses."
