Practice Fusion, the San Francisco-based EHR provider, is teaming with Prior Knowledge, a predictive database provider, in an effort to better interpret health data. Practice Fusion will use Veritable, which is Prior Knowledge’s predictive database, as a way to understand health trends using an unidentified data-set from Practice Fusion.

"We're working toward the same goal of democratizing information," Ryan Howard, CEO of Practice Fusion, said in a statement. "Practice Fusion is unlocking health information technology for doctors and patients while Prior Knowledge is unlocking data for entrepreneurs and researchers. This pilot test can help solve the some of the biggest problems in healthcare today."

Prior Knowledge is a recent startup from MIT graduates that has a database that allows for "non-data scientists" to discover insights in data sets. In February, the firm closed a $1.4 million round of funding.
