The MIDAS Consortium is hosting a BIG DATA FOR HEALTH POLICY SYMPOSIUM on 20th -21st January in Derry (Northern Ireland).
CrowdHEALTH is an international research project partially funded by the Horizon 2020 Programme of the European Commission that intends to integrate high volumes health-related heterogeneous data from multiple sources with the aim of supporting policy making decisions.
The project started in March 2017 and will finish in February 2020.
CrowdHEALTH is delivering a secure ICT platform to collect and aggregate high volumes health data from multiple information sources in Europe.
CrowdHEALTH also proposes the evolution of patient health records (PHR) towards Holistic Health Records (HHRs) enriched to become “Social HHRs” to capture the clinical, social and human factors.
Today’s rich digital information environment is characterized by the multitude of data sources. Thre are extremely large amounts of medical data. But currently collected data are heterogeneous, spread across different health care providers and systems that operate independently.
Due to this fact it is quite common that important events related to health are missed.
The CrowdHEALTH system will be deployed in five large-scale pilots that will take place in Germany, Greece, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom and will engage more than 200,000 users.
Under construction! Come back for more info soon! Thanks for your patience!
On 5th July 2019, a workshop about the CrowdHEALTH project will take place in Athens (Greece), in the framework of ICIMTH 2019 (17th International Conference on Informatics, Management and Technology in Healthcare).
The First IEEE SERVICES Workshop on Big Data for public health policy making - in conjunction with the IEEE SERVICES 2019, July 8-13, 2019, Milan, Italy - seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects concerning the adoption of Big Data Analytics in the context of evidence-based public health policy making.
The Commission presented a set of recommendations for the creation of a secure system that will enable citizens to access their electronic health files across Member States.
