Paris, France – March 26, 2020 – Under the guidance of the World Health Organization and the European Union message stressing the importance of data sharing, Dawex, a leading data exchange technology company, today announced the launch of a COVID-19 Data Exchange initiative. The platform will be available pro bono to a large community of companies and organizations looking to contribute to the resolution of this crisis. The technology enables the exchange of vital non-personal data to hinder COVID-19’s dissemination and restrain its economic impact.
Scientific communities, hospitals and healthcare operations, pharmaceutical organizations, retailers, transport & logistics companies, specialized equipment manufacturers and distributors, consulting organizations, technology companies and health tech startups, banks, insurance, global and regional health organizations, governmental agencies, municipalities and other public services will be able to securely and easily access, publish, and exchange multiple sources of non-personal data worldwide, therefore acquiring more capabilities to answer crisis-related complex questions, faster.
“There is an unparalleled demonstration of solidarity from many organizations to contribute to the resolution of this crisis. It was an evidence for Dawex to immediately engage its resources and technology to bring the best environment to all these organizations to exchange data in the best conditions.” says Laurent Lafaye, co-founder and co-CEO of Dawex.
By using COVID-19 Data Exchange, participants remain in full control of the data they share, decide with whom they share it, and keep track of all data flows. Only vetted participants from public and private organizations will be granted access to the COVID-19 Data Exchange to ensure confidentiality and relevance of the data exchanges.
The “COVID-19 crisis is challenging the way we will use data in the future. Thousands of data providers are willing to share their sources of data, right now, for free. Without trust, fairness and use cases, this effort will be pointless. Our dedicated team of experts from Deloitte, in data management, healthcare and artificial intelligence will make the most out of this coalition and Dawex technology.” says Mathieu Colas, Senior Partner at Deloitte.
“The COVID-19 Data Exchange will facilitate and accelerate data exchanges while we are in the midst of the storm. Moreover, it brings the community together, strengthening our ability to respond to future crises and prepare for a better and stronger future.” says Fabrice Tocco, co-founder and co-CEO of Dawex.
