Entanglement Partners with Center for Health Affairs to Provide Quantum and HPC Applications

September 23, 2021

NEW YORK, Sept. 23, 2021 — Entanglement Inc. (Ei), an early-stage quantum and advanced computing company, has partnered with The Center for Health Affairs to accelerate the next wave of computing breakthroughs for healthcare and medical applications. The partnership will leverage Entanglement’s diverse advanced computing capabilities, professional services, AI, and quantum & quantum-inspired optimizations to deliver quantum-bridging solutions to clients of the center and its business affiliates, CHAMPS Group Purchasing and The Essentials Group. The multi-year agreement represents a significant opportunity to accelerate transformational innovations within the Cleveland healthcare and medical community and re-affirms Cleveland as an epicenter for health and medical related AI and high-performance computing capabilities. Not only will quantum computing revolutionize critical simulations for drug discovery, but it will also transform the landscape of medical analytics, hospital management, and global medical supply chains, eventually unlocking tailored predictive health solutions for patients.

Entanglement’s applications and capabilities will provide cybersecurity for digital medical records, solve scheduling challenges, optimize global supply chains, and manage stockpiles of medical equipment. These are game-changing developments that The Center for Health Affairs (CHA) can offer its members. Both Ei and CHA will ensure all services provided through this partnership fully comply with the safeguards of the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA), as well as all federal and state regulations.

The Center is already known for being adaptable and constantly enhancing its service offerings to meet the changing demands of its members. Through this partnership with Ei, it will now have the capability to enhance its leadership in providing cutting-edge technology by giving its members a competitive advantage through unrivaled transformative computing applications. Members of CHA will have access to advanced computing capabilities that will take advantage of quantum bridging applications, optimization, and artificial intelligence to position its members for a competitive advantage and exceptional patient experience.

“With this partnership, there’s an exciting opportunity to build upon Northeast Ohio’s reputation as a hub for health technology,” said Brian Lane, President and CEO of The Center for Health Affairs. “Entanglement represents the future of quantum and advanced computing, with features that give our members and clients access to new applications and optimizations that will enable secure, responsive and predictive medical services. These innovative offerings position our members and clients with a competitive advantage and ultimately allow our region to stand out further as the worldwide leader in patient care.”

The U.S. Department of Defense recently validated an Entanglement platform, developed in collaboration with a global computing technology firm, that optimized equitable distribution of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) throughout the U.S. That platform showed a 90 percent improved performance over a comparative Evolutionary Algorithm, currently the state of the art. Entanglement then applied these breakthrough capabilities to develop a vaccine distribution and administration model.

“We are extremely excited to partner with the nation’s first hospital association and play a part in establishing irreversible momentum in a sector where the impact of quantum bridging and advanced computing technological breakthroughs will be felt the most,” said Jason Turner, Chairman of Entanglement. “Entanglement will not only provide a marked advantage to healthcare companies, but will also provide a more secure, more responsive, and more predictive medical services to patients. Through our partnership, we will bring new applications and optimizations to the local healthcare and medical community, building upon Cleveland’s reputation in this area, and bolster local economic development efforts. We see this as an incremental pathway towards predictive healthcare accelerated by artificial intelligence-based applications.”

The vaccine distribution platform is an example of how Entanglement’s access to other forms of advanced computing in purpose-built laboratories, along with Ei’s White Glove Service, experienced team, advanced research, and existing intellectual property, creates a new dynamic for the Advanced Computing Revolution.
