MongoDB Powers Apervita’s Health Community and Marketplace

Enables Health Enterprises to Create Portable Analytics That Can Be Written Once and Deployed Anywhere

NEW YORK, NY and PALO ALTO, CA – May 19, 2015 – MongoDB today announced that Apervita, Inc. relies on MongoDB for its Apervita platform, the fastest-growing health analytics and data community and marketplace.

Apervita equips health enterprises to author, use, publish and apply thousands of health analytics and data sets, while choosing from an extensive portfolio published by leading health providers. MongoDB powers the Apervita platform, massively simplifying the process of connecting health data to analytics. Enhancing it with rich semantic meaning, MongoDB provides the scale and robustness required for a real-time big data environment.

For years, researchers have created predictive models to help health professionals prevent disease and deliver more effective care. Applying them to data has been time consuming and cost-prohibitive, stymied by the arduous process of integrating and maintaining embedded rules in silo systems. Apervita solves this challenge with an open platform that allows authors to commercialize evidence-based algorithms, measures, pathways, protocols and data sets by transforming them into computable analytics. Health enterprises can then enhance their workflow by subscribing to these analytics and connecting their own clinical, financial and operational data sets. On Apervita, a single provider can execute tens of thousands of analytical processes, simultaneously, across terabytes of data, all built entirely on MongoDB.

Apervita selected MongoDB for its ability to flexibly store large volumes of unstructured data, allowing Apervita’s users to holistically represent, retrieve and consume data so it can be readily applied to health analytics. MongoDB’s principles of horizontal scaling and distributed data were also an ideal fit for Apervita. Apervita plans to continue to capitalize on these principles by evolving the platform to support thousands of concurrent grid nodes.

“With relational databases, you’re always running into a ceiling of what you can do,” said Michael Oltman, managing director of technology, Apervita. “Our concern is more than just scaling the data; it’s also scaling the total concurrency of data access on both writes and reads. We’re confident that MongoDB will allow us to expand quickly and distribute the workload to ensure stability, performance and scale.”

MongoDB also enabled Apervita to represent and store large graphs, as well as build a smart ontology engine that is more efficient and flexible than ontologies embedded in SQL and graph databases. Apervita platform allows health enterprises to abstract analytics from the complexities of underlying data and take advantage of the rich associations provided by ontological structures. As a result, enterprises can quickly connect their data and activate analytics.

“Apervita’s ambitious goal of empowering global health to transform knowledge into shared analytics aims to dramatically improve health for everyone. Its success hinges on an infrastructure that can meet the industry’s unstructured data needs,” said Kelly Stirman, VP of Strategy, MongoDB. “By blending the best of NoSQL with traditional databases, MongoDB delivers the stability, scale and runway for innovation that Apervita needs to liberate health care knowledge.”
