Enriching knowledge and enhancing care through health data

i~HD partner in EHR2EDC Project

i~HD is a partner in Electronic Health Records to Electronic Data Capture systems (EHR2EDC) - a new 2-year project launched earlier this year. The goal of EHR2EDC is to improve and commercialise a clinical research technology platform (InSite) enabling a trustworthy re-use of Electronic Health Records (EHR) data. The overall aim is to improve global research and accelerate access to treatment innovations. The EHR2EDC project is jointly funded by EIT Health and by some of our EFPIA member companies.

i~HD will lead a Work package on governance, developing a code of practice and lading discussions with regulatory bodies on the acceptability criteria for EHR data acting as a source of information into regulated clinical trials (eSource). i~HD, in partnership with EuroRec, will develop a new Quality Seal for research platforms contributing eSource data. i~HD will also contribute to the work package on semantic interoperability, and develop an extension to the Data Quality Seal for EHR2EDC.

i~HD is currently involved in additional EC and IMI grant proposals as well.
