Otta's take on Datavant

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Datavant’s healthcare data platform leverages AI to allow medical companies to organize, protect, match, interpret and share data for use in clinical trial decision making. Founded in 2017, they already have an impressive list of clients including Janssen, Symphony Health, Medidata and Blue Health Intelligence.

The market in which Datavant operates is booming, as global big data analytics in healthcare is forecast to be worth nearly $70 billion by 2025, up from $16 billion in 2017.

Having raised significant venture funding from Transformation Capital and notably, Johnson & Johnson Innovation, the company has since gone on to form a $7 billion merger with peer company Ciox Health. This move makes Datavant the largest health data ecosystem in the US.

Total funding - $80.5m

Company values

  • We Keep Data Human Every datapoint we touch represents a patient. We obsess over patient privacy and benefit in all decisions we make, even when it adds friction.
  • We Are Customer Obsessed We listen to our customers' current needs, anticipate their future needs, and set the pace for the possible. Today’s awesome is tomorrow’s average.
  • We Operate Like Owners We demonstrate unmatched accountability and follow-through. We lead with “how might we” rather than “we can’t.” We raise a hand when there is no clear owner and embrace a “no job too big, no job too small” mindset to win together.
  • We Prioritize Growth Over Comfort Growth happens outside our comfort zone. We embrace ambition, strive for exceptionalism, and see feedback as a gift. We invest boldly to grow each other, our network, and our impact on healthcare.
  • We Value Time As Our Most Prized Asset We respect team and customer time by simplifying steps, knowing when done is better than perfect, and never being the bottleneck. We speak truthfully and openly so information travels fast.
