Our Team

Dandelion Health was founded in 2020 by experts in health tech, hospital systems, academia, and clinical AI. We are building the world’s largest AI training and validation platform. Today, we pride ourselves on our ability to make data access as easy as possible for AI developers, while raising the bar for patient safety and data quality. Tomorrow, we will be the place where any AI developer can go to build a responsible clinical AI product. Our culture is all about learning from data and improving, so we can help our clients improve health through AI.

Our Data and Cloud Stack

We partner with health systems to safely and ethically make their de-identified patient data available to AI developers so that they may build better, more ambitious AI products for patients and physicians. Currently the data is acquired from Sharp HealthCare and Sanford Health in the United States – with three additional U.S. health systems joining soon.

We currently have clinical data dating back to July 1, 2016. This data represents over 4.5 million patients and includes but is not limited to:

  • Structured data (e.g., 100% of the EMR, including some claims)
  • Unstructured text (e.g., clinical notes, radiology reports)
  • Images (e.g., PACS, pathology)
  • Video
  • Waveforms
  • Continuous streaming monitoring data

Your Role

You work hand-in-hand with the CEO to build this company. You are organized, articulate, strategic, scrappy, and unafraid to get your hands dirty. This is a small, early stage company with enormous ambitions and everyone pitches in to do everything.

You are excited about being at the cutting edge of clinical data and AI infrastructure. You will work across the organization to build the partnerships, processes, policies, and resources that meet the needs of our employees as well as our clients, who are AI developers accessing our data and ML tools to build AI products that improve health.

You are not a typical operations hire. You have advanced project management skills; strategic business acumen; and_ _a strong ability to identify and foresee issues, proactively map out solutions and scenarios, communicate your ideas and plans to all levels of the organization, and document and share your learnings. You report directly to the CEO.
