Vibrent Health Platform Supports Participation in All of Us Program

With the public launch of the All of Us cohort program for the Precision Medicine Initiative this month, the National Institutes of Health is directing potential participants to a web and mobile platform to enroll, share their health information, and register for program updates.

That portal, plus all the other consumer-facing technology that supports All of Us, was built by a relatively young vendor named Vibrent Health on its Learning Health System technology platform. Fairfax, Virginia-based Vibrent is the sole partner of NIH for the All of Us Participant Technology Systems Center, which provides a web portal, mobile apps, and other digital tools to support and enhance the experience of the 1 million or more expected participants.

“Everything about that launch was centered around what we delivered to the program,” said Vibrent Founder and CEO Praduman “PJ” Jain. “It’s a huge deal,” Jain added. “All of these participants [who] are interacting with the program are all coming through Vibrent’s platform.”

It is so significant, according to Jain, because All of Us is more than just a biobank. “This is the largest digital health research program in the making in the history of mankind,” Jain said. He was not exaggerating.

“This is not a biobank only. This is not about collecting blood or genomics data,” Jain explained. “It’s really about understanding underlying factors that determine health of an individual and finding new scientific discoveries and cures. It’s about understanding complex relationships [between] genomics, environmental exposures, lifestyles, [and] biological systems, then combining that with behaviors and lifestyles, and really looking at how an individual on a daily basis can live a better life and how populations can live better lives.”
