Sanford Health has partnered with New York startup Dandelion Health in an effort to help patients and doctors by using artificial intelligence.
Dandelion Health’s new product development platform will use patient clinical data to build AI products that will aid in medical decisions and improve diagnostics and drug development.
Sanford is one of two health systems that partner with Dandelion, the other being Sharp HealthCare in San Diego.
“We believe this partnership with Dandelion and Sharp will enhance the ways we can deliver care and improve lives,” said Kent Lehr, chief business development officer at Sanford, in the press release.

Dandelion’s goal is to reach a total of five health system partners representing rural and urban populations across the country.
“Sanford Health serves a diverse population across our 250,000 square mile footprint, with two-thirds of our patients living in rural areas,” Lehr said. “It is vital that all patients, regardless of where they live, are included in the data as well as have access to modern healthcare.”
