    Powerful processing

    Our platform leverages Delta Lake, powered by Apache Spark™. It processes ETL (Extract-Transform-Load) workloads up to 48% faster than traditional SQL-based ETLs, and once data is onboarded, it provides up to 50x faster time-to-insights compared to traditional data lake technology.

    Next gen data science

    Our Delta Lake pipeline operates on Parquet file format instead of traditional SQL-based RDBMS files to provide lightning-fast access to data and analytics. We seamlessly integrate data science capabilities, including AI, natural language processing, machine learning, and tensor flow, into the pipeline to extract additional value from the data. The result is a single source of truth about what’s happening in the healthcare ecosystem.

    Built to connect

    Housing more than 300TB of healthcare data from hundreds of internally curated and external commercial sources, Definitive Healthcare brings everything together into a series of purpose-built data marts, which can be accessed by your business intelligence tool of choice, such as Tableau, Power BI, or Qlik. Work with pre-built dashboards or use native SQL syntax to explore and mine your own data across more than 300 million patient profiles and nearly 2 million healthcare providers and facilities, either directly in Databricks Lakehouse or in our Snowflake Data Cloud.

    Security and compliance

    Definitive Healthcare is committed to building trust with our users and adhering to the highest standards for data security. As part of that commitment, we completed a SOC2 assessment and received an unqualified SOC2 Type II attestation across all five trust service criteria. As part of the broader certification process, we created a comprehensive compliance and risk management program with measures in place to protect the privacy, confidentiality, and integrity of our customers’ data. These measures also allow us to communicate more transparently with our customers regarding the steps we’re taking to keep our data safe from data breaches, cybercriminals, and other vulnerabilities. Note our SOC2 certification does not yet apply to our recently acquired Populi platform.
