The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us how much the world needs to learn faster, so we can better serve our communities. We want to help researchers find cures faster, empower every clinician to be an expert and help families make the most informed decisions on their care. If the Truveta platform had existed, physicians could have learned so much more from each other:
- Which medications are most effective? When should patients be intubated?
- Why do African American men have significantly higher mortality rates?
- What are the effects of COVID-19 on mental health?
- How do we equitably distribute vaccines?
Faster answers to questions could have saved thousands of lives and improved the lives of millions; and researchers could have staffed clinical trials more quickly with statistically representative populations, shaving months from the vaccine approval process.
