Physicians and health care leaders are frustrated with how difficult it is to effectively use their own data and, in particular, to extract timely, actionable insights.

Health2047 Inc.—a Silicon Valley business formation and commercialization enterprise launched by the AMA—last year spun out Medcurio, which is solving this data-access problem. The company aims to eliminate headaches and greatly reduce the time and effort involved in getting secure access to real-time data.

“Vast amounts of useful health care data are constantly being collected, but most of it remains inaccessible beyond siloed applications and we need a solution to leverage its full value,” said Health2047 CEO Lawrence K. Cohen. “Our spin out of Medcurio is a critical step in enabling data liquidity and giving healthcare organizations the ability to instantly access all data needed to derive insights and make decisions, without compromising patient data privacy.”
