Inaugural Conference of the European Institute for Innovation through Health Data (i~HD)
On 10/03/2016 (Paris, France)

This Inaugural Conference will mark the parallel launch of a novel European platform to support multi-centre clinical research. This operational platform, the result of the European project EHR4CR (Electronic Health Records for Clinical Research), can connect securely to the data within multiple hospital EHR systems and clinical data warehouses across Europe, to enable a trial sponsor to predict the number of eligible patients for a candidate clinical trial protocol, to assess its feasibility and to locate the most relevant hospital sites.

The role of i~HD, as a not-for-profit Institute, is to provide independent governance oversight of such services now, and as these expand to connect with many more hospitals across Europe. The conference will present this platform and its pharma-led adoption programme, and detail the i~HD governance services that reflect state-of-the-art in the trustworthy re-use of health data for research. You will also learn about Europe's largest "big data" project in health: EMIF (European Medical Information Framework). The views of patients on the benefits of reusing their data for research will be presented by Mary Baker, past President of the European Brain Council, one of our keynote speakers.
