When I started Aridhia, it was with the somewhat vague intention to bring large scale computing and analytics to healthcare and to bridge the gap between clinical research and how that knowledge contributes to day-to-day healthcare delivery. That was quite a while ago – in 2008 – and I don’t mind admitting that I was very, very naïve in my understanding of what that really meant.
Fifteen years later I’m less naïve, more informed, and considerably more aware of the conditions necessary for a successful, data intensive health program. The summary being that it’s a team sport and we know the best teams are made up of people that are team players as well as individual contributors.
Our individual contribution is the Aridhia Digital Research Environment or DRE, a health and biomedical informatics platform that addresses many of the principal data challenges involved in developing and importantly scaling innovative health research and health delivery services.
Since 2011, we’ve devoted all our efforts and energies to developing, running and supporting the DRE and contributing to some of the most interesting and impactful health programs across the world. Scaling health research programs to the point of genuine impact requires a multidisciplinary approach – clinical and scientific domain expertise, understanding of the data, the regulatory or legal framework for collaboration and a technology platform to bring those elements together and enable innovation and change.
The DRE is an important part of each solution, but only part, it needs to be aligned with the clinical, scientific and data expertise of our customers and complimented by the cross-functional skills of the Aridhia team. Culturally we believe strongly in long-term partnerships with our customers, and we live our values day in and day out. We always act in the best long-term interests of our customers, and we always contribute above and beyond.
Today the Aridhia DRE runs on 11 dedicated Hubs across the World helping researchers from over 80 countries collaborate on a wide portfolio of important health and biomedical research programs ranging from pediatrics to neurodegenerative conditions, helping to create insight, generate new knowledge and improve outcomes for current and future generations.
The Aridhia DRE is a next-generation research environment with security and privacy locked in.
