Integration of high volumes of health-related heterogeneous data from multiple sources with the aim of supporting policy making decisions.
Today’s rich digital information environment is characterized by the multitude of data sources. There are extremely large amounts of medical data. But currently collected data are heterogeneous, spread across different health care providers and systems that operate independently.
CrowdHEALTH is delivering a secure ICT platform to collect and aggregate high volumes health data from multiple information sources in Europe, and is proposing the evolution of patient health records (PHR) towards Holistic Health Records (HHRs) enriched to become “Social HHRs” to capture the clinical, social and human factors. Prototypes will be deployed in five large-scale pilots that will take place in Germany, Greece, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom and will engage more than 200,000 users.
