“We were searching for a leader who has the prowess of a data scientist with experience in the systematic evaluation of the value of interventions – both existing and new,” said Dr. Vindell Washington, CEO of Onduo. “Erich has an impressive track record of creating a data science culture and infrastructure for biomedical research and interventions. We’re thrilled to have Erich on board to continue expanding and evolving the Onduo evidence generation platform.”
“Healthcare needs to change for both patients and providers,” said Dr. Huang. “Onduo has been generating the clinical evidence needed to effect change and drive adoption of digital health at scale. I’ll be pulling together all forms of data collection in order to accelerate the company’s product development focused on personalized care.”
The cornerstone of Onduo’s differentiated capabilities is the ability to assign individualized pathways for each member. With support from our parent company Verily, Onduo has built an advanced predictive modeling engine that uses the science of “digital phenotyping” to match the right care to the right member at the right time for better health and lasting change. The Onduo Advanced Real-time Cohort (ARC) engine securely and rapidly evaluates multi-sourced data streams such as medical and pharmacy claims, paired device data, and medication data, available through contracted relationships and member-level user agreements to build unique profiles for individuals or their digital phenotype, and tailor their care experience.
