The MIDAS Consortium is hosting a BIG DATA FOR HEALTH POLICY SYMPOSIUM on 20th -21st January in Derry (Northern Ireland). This project is due to finish in February 2020 and will join experts in several fields, health practitioners and policy leads from more than 60 countries across Europe and America. The primary goal of the MIDAS Project is to address the needs of policymakers and citizens through the delivery of a unified big data platformIn order to ensure that the information provided by the MIDAS platform is actionable, the technical implementation adopted a user-centred design approach, thus maximising the positive impact on health policy across Europe. This means that stakeholders were involved at an early stage in helping to co-design the MIDAS user experience.
The CrowdHEALTH team will present the project and some of its results in this event.
