The proposal process

The Sanford Data Collaborative 2017 RFP will be available late summer/early fall.

The data

Sanford is committed to the protection of our patient’s data. Datasets will be limited in nature, researchers and their associated academic institutions will be required to sign a Data Usage Agreement ensuring the highest level of protection surrounding released data.

The data comes from Sanford Health, one of the largest health care systems in the nation. Headquartered in the Dakotas, the system has received nearly $1 billion in gifts from philanthropist Denny Sanford. These gifts have allowed for several groundbreaking initiatives, including global children's clinics, genomic medicine and specialized centers researching cures for type 1 diabetes, breast cancer and other diseases.
