Health data has proven to be a crucial enabler in the development of innovative health, care and research solutions.

This process was facilitated by new digital ways for collecting, storing, exchanging, and analysing health data, meaning it can be reused not just for a second time but even more, not only by the person who collected the information but also by other clinicians, researchers and health authorities. The benefits of secondary use of health data have been widely discussed and acknowledged/recognised and yet, the main challenge remains on how we can create trust in the health ecosystem for the reuse of this health data.

Coming fresh from the success of our last conference in 2022 “Health Data Quality, a Dynamic Complexity”, i~HD is announcing its Annual Conference 2023. The emphasis of the conference in 2022 was to demonstrate the importance of Data Quality, an important condition for the trustworthy use and re-use of health data. Aside from taking off from the key points discussed during that conference, the 2023 conference will provide participants with a broader scope for enabling trust in the secondary use of health data. It is great to have and use and reuse health data, but what do we need so that all stakeholders can also trust the reuse of health data? i~HD will present its holistic view showing all important health data challenges to be solved in order to trustworthy use and reuse of high-quality data to continuously improve care and accelerate research.
