Syapse, a precision oncology startup, revealed the names of six new hospital participants in its data-sharing network during the Biden Cancer Summit in Washington, D.C., Sept. 21.

St. Louis-based Ascension, Phoenix-based Banner Health, Falls Church, Va.-based Inova Health System, New Orleans-based LSU Health, Columbus-based OhioHealth and Seoul National University in South Korea are now participating in the Syapse Learning Health Network, a global precision oncology data-sharing network initially announced during the 2016 White House Cancer Moonshot Summit.

Founding members of the data-sharing network included Milwaukee-based Aurora Health Care; Detroit-based Henry Ford Health System; Renton, Wash.-based Providence St. Joseph Health; and Englewood, Colo.-based Catholic Health Initiatives and San Francisco-based Dignity Health (through their Precision Medicine Alliance joint venture).

Since 2016, Syapse has fulfilled its original Cancer Moonshot pledge to onboard at least five new health systems to its data-sharing network within one year. Today, the Syapse Learning Health Network comprises data from 412 hospitals across the U.S. and South Korea.

Syapse also plans to begin exchanging data with the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results program, which will bring registry data to oncologists in the company's network while helping the national agency improve its cancer surveillance efforts.
