The HiGHmed consortium is working on novel, interoperable solutions in medical informatics with the aim of making medical patient data accessible for clinical research and teaching. This in turn leads to improved, future-oriented patient care.
The project bundles and integrates the competencies of 12 leading university hospitals in Germany as well as other partners from science and industry. The partners are working together across organizations and institutions with the goal of establishing a network of data integration centers to make healthcare data usable across sites. Clinical use cases are used as examples to show how data, information and knowledge from care and research can be linked across sites for the benefit of patients.
