The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center is partnering with two local universities to expand research using advanced health data analytics. UPMC executives say the organization will pay for much of the research work and in turn hopes to commercialize new medical innovations developed through the collaboration.

Over the next six years, UPMC will fund new research centers at the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University under the umbrella organization, called the Pittsburgh Health Data Alliance.

Hundreds of millions of dollars in existing grant funds at the institutions also will be used for the venture.
