Under the impulse of the World Health Organization and the European Union stressing the importance of data sharing, Dawex, a data exchange technology company, has announced launching of the COVID-19 Data Exchange initiative. The platform will be available pro bono to a large community of companies and organisations looking to contribute to the resolution of this crisis. The technology enables the exchange of vital non-personal data to hinder COVID-19’s dissemination and restrain its economic impact.
Scientific communities, hospitals and healthcare operations, pharmaceutical organisations, retailers, transport and logistics companies, specialised equipment manufacturers and distributors, consulting organisations, technology companies and health tech startups, banks, insurance, global and regional health organisations, governmental agencies, municipalities and other public services will be able to securely and easily access, publish, and exchange multiple sources of non-personal data worldwide, therefore acquiring more capabilities to answer crisis-related complex questions, faster.
By using COVID-19 Data Exchange, participants remain in full control of the data they share, decide with whom they share it, and keep track of all data flows. Only vetted participants from public and private organisations will be granted access to the COVID-19 Data Exchange to ensure confidentiality and relevance of the data exchanges.

“There is an unparalleled demonstration of solidarity from many organisations to contribute to the resolution of this crisis. It was an evidence for Dawex to immediately engage its resources and technology to bring the best environment to all these organisations to exchange data in the best conditions,” says Laurent Lafaye, co-founder and co-CEO of Dawex.
“COVID-19 crisis is challenging the way we will use data in the future. Thousands of data providers are willing to share their sources of data, right now, for free. Without trust, fairness and use cases, this effort will be pointless. Our dedicated team of experts from Deloitte, in data management, healthcare and artificial intelligence will make the most out of this coalition and Dawex technology.” says Mathieu Colas, Senior Partner at Deloitte.
“The COVID-19 Data Exchange will facilitate and accelerate data exchanges while we are in the midst of the storm. Moreover, it brings the community together, strengthening our ability to respond to future crises and prepare for a better and stronger future.” says Fabrice Tocco, co-founder and co-CEO of Dawex.
