The HiGHmed Consortium is working on novel, interoperable solutions in medical informatics with the goal of making medical patient data accessible for clinical research and education. This in turn results in improved, future-oriented patient care.
The project bundles and integrates competencies from eight 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 integrate health data across sites. Three clinical use cases in the fields of oncology, cardiology and infection control will be used as examples to demonstrate how data, information and knowledge from healthcare and research can be linked across sites for the benefit of patients.
