Syndesis Health & LaCardio Sign Research Collaboration Agreement

Syndesis Health announced today that it has signed a research collaboration and information sharing agreement with Fundación Cardio Infantil Instituto de Cardiología (LaCardio), a leading cardiovascular hospital in Bogotá, Colombia. 

LaCardio is joining the Syndesis Health Network alongside progressive healthcare institutions from South America, Asia, and Africa. Syndesis Health created its global network of healthcare partners to enable secure access to a multi-country, real-world data set. Syndesis Health's global research platform, Syntium, unifies de-identified clinical data from these healthcare partners in a secure, ethical, and compliant manner for the improvement of global health outcomes. 

The partnership enables LaCardio to extend its commitment to improving patient outcomes by leveraging the Syndesis Health platform for access to data, analytics, and other technical resources. In addition, the partnership enables the hospital to engage in collaborative research opportunities with peer institutions around the world that are a part of the network. 

Hans Godfrey, COO and head of Latin America data partnerships for Syndesis Health, commented: "We believe that the future of healthcare will be data-driven. With LaCardio as a partner in the Syndesis Health Network, we will together expand the potential for real-world data to enable research and treatments in the cardiovascular space."

Dr. Juan Gabriel Cendales, Executive Director of LaCardio, stated: "One of the strategic priorities of LaCardio as a university hospital and scientific research center is to continue advancing in scientific studies while contributing to the health of the people in Colombia and the region. Having valuable data, evaluating, and applying tools, such as AI, in healthcare allows us to anticipate the needs of the population, evaluate new alternatives and improve the experience of patients and collaborators. This alliance is part of the path in which we are working to be the hospital of the future."
