Sansoro Health, Inc. and Datica Health, LLC announced today they have merged, offering a self-service platform for securing cloud-based applications and integrating patient data from multiple sources. The combined company is solving these problems today for an impressive list of customers; including Johnson & Johnson, VigiLanz, Vineti, and more.
Healthcare’s Rapid Migration to the Cloud
Healthcare is rapidly migrating to the cloud. Healthcare cloud spend will grow from $24 billion this year to $55 billion by 2025 (Market Study Report), and 84% of companies use multiple clouds (RightScale). To support the delivery of better health outcomes at a lower cost, new digital health solutions require patient data to be available in the cloud.
Using patient data, however, frequently blocks cloud application development because of data integration and compliance requirements; however, this creates unique compliance and data integration problems for developers. The merger allows the companies to combine its software solutions into a single product suite that will enable customers to integrate patient data from any source to build secure, compliant, integrated healthcare cloud applications.
Combined Entity Integration Plans
The combined entity retains the Datica name and is headquartered in Minneapolis, MN. Jeremy E. Pierotti, previous CEO and co-founder of Sansoro Health, will assume the role of CEO. Travis Good, MD, previous Datica CEO and co-founder, will serve as Chief Technology Officer (CTO).
“There are staggering hurdles to bringing advanced digital health solutions to market,” said Jeremy E. Pierotti, CEO. “We know the complexity of health data exchange and compliance, and our products streamline development and management of cloud-based applications. Our combined company offers a complete, scalable platform to meet these challenges and enable data-driven healthcare in the cloud.”
Newly Appointed Board of Directors
The new Board of Directors includes individuals from the previous Sansoro Health and Datica boards. These individuals are Yumin Choi, Partner at Bain Capital Ventures; Keith J. Figlioli, General Partner at LRVHealth; Brian Hopcraft, Managing Director at Lewis and Clark Ventures; Omar Hussain, former CEO of Imprivata; Micky Tripathi, CEO of the Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative; Travis Good, MD; and Jeremy E. Pierotti. The terms of the deal were not released.
Merger Benefits for Datica/Sansora Health
Travis Good, MD, CTO adds, “We give our customers a reliable partner for developing solutions that make use of patient data in the cloud. With our platform, previously cumbersome development processes become frictionless, resulting in enhanced, secure solutions at lower cost and with greater speed to market.”
