Join our International Advisory Board members Ain Aavikso and Dipak Kalra at the EMIF and i~HD for a conference on health data.

The European Institute for Innovation through Health Data (i~HD), led by DO-IT’s International Advisory Board member, Dipak Kalra, and the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) European Medical Information Framework (EMIF) project will hold a joint conference on ‘Realising the Value from Health Data – Improving Care and Research’ in Madrid, Spain, on 21-22 September 2017.

There will be a strong focus on progressing towards value based healthcare, comparing health ministry, health insurer, policy experts, EFPIA pharmaceutical industry, and HTA perspectives. A major part of the conference will be dedicated to patients’ perspectives on reusing their health data for research.

Through presentations and panel discussions, participants will find out how hospitals are successfully reusing patient data as learning health systems, and improving their data quality. The conference will also showcase the state of the art in clinical research using big data, presenting research findings that could only have been discovered using large scale data, showcasing the latest in analysing high dimensional data.

Michel Van Speybroek and Thomas Alvin from the DO->IT consortium will also be among the speakers. Roadmap will be represented by Jacoline Bouvy. Other speakers come from the Spanish and Estonian Health Ministries, the European Commission, patient associations, health insurers, policymakers and clinical research. i~HD is a not-for-profit European institute, with a mission to guide and catalyse the quality, interoperability and trustworthy uses of health data, for optimising health and knowledge discovery. It was born out of the IMI project EHR4CR. IMI’s EMIF project is developing a technology and governance framework for the identification, assessment and (re)use of data for health research, and will showcase its final year results.

Participation is free, but registration is mandatory.
