Hundreds of participants went to Porto, Portugal on the 17th and 18th of November for the first-ever health data conference "Health Data Quality: a Dynamic Complexity".
The European Institute for Health Data (i~HD), together with six other partners, launched the Digital Health Uptake (DHU) project which aims to facilitate the alignment of policies, strategies, instruments and activities to advance the uptake of digital health solutions and services in Europe.
The aim of this summit was to demonstrate the importance of the quality of healthcare data, how to measure data quality and how to improve it. Whether for primary use or secondary use, data quality is a universal requirement. It is the most important real-world data challenge. Data without quality can neither contribute value nor serve any useful purpose.
i~HD, together with more than 20 stakeholders, expresses its support for the aims of the European Health Data Space as proposed by the European Commission.
As the regulatory landscape around the governance of artificial intelligence, health data reuse and innovation continues to evolve, our research and innovation community find themselves navigating a transition from one set of known governance expectations to additional challenges.
Researchers from i~HD have recently published a triad of publications on the identification of active substances and dose forms in medicinal products.

Today is a day that i~HD reflects on solemnly and with hope because Data Protection and Privacy are core to our founding principles and our work. We lead on several EU projects for data protection and ethics, we have developed codes of practice for the safe and effective use of data, we have co-run roundtables exploring the impact of novel innovation approaches including Artificial Intelligence, and we have developed educational, outreach and quality assessments for Information Governance, ethics and their role in data driven innovation.
i~HD welcomes its new members Microsoft, Novartis and Takeda.
What better way to rally public engagement than by demonstrating the tangible benefits of health data analysis through real-world examples? That is why we have started building up a library of case studies, collecting case studies that were set up by many organisations across Europe. Our library illustrates how different uses of data have contributed to gaining valuable insights in different disease areas, and how patient data was protected.
In any healthcare organization it is critical that the importance of data quality be properly explained. From management perspective to the healthcare providers, a sensible and understandable rationale must be given in order to obtain active participation in the data quality effort.
