Marc d. Paradis is in charge of managing Northwell Health’s data strategy—how it is organized, accessed, and shared—at a time when the volume of healthcare data is increasing exponentially and new federal interoperability laws are starting to have teeth. Northwell’s response is to open its doors to new kinds of external collaborations with investors, entrepreneurs, and vendors.

Large healthcare systems are gearing up to use their data in ways that were not previously possible, just as new federal interoperability laws are kicking in that should drive innovative approaches to solving critical challenges in clinical care.

For VCs, entrepreneurs, and vendors, this means new kinds of partnerships and opportunities to access data that is crucial to their technological advancements in an era when artificial intelligence and generative AI are becoming increasingly important to driving change.
