Real-World Data (RWD) Epidemiology Solutions Principal



Posted on Monday, December 11, 2023

Healthcare needs good data. At PicnicHealth, we are building deep observational and real-world outcome datasets that fuel cutting-edge research while giving patients control of their own medical record data. These complete, clinically-rich datasets produce unique insights — across dozens of diseases — to ultimately get the right treatments into patients’ hands faster. We do this by working directly with patients and leveraging state of the art machine learning to transform messy medical records into structured, research-ready datasets as a part of a large spectrum of observational studies and drug and disease registries. To date we’ve helped tens of thousands of patients securely access their records and proactively contribute to advancing research in diseases that impact their lives.

Founded in 2014, PicnicHealth partners with 12 of the top 20 biopharma companies and we have raised over $100 million in venture capital from investors including Amplify Partners, Felicis Ventures and B Capital Group.
