European collaborative project
i~HD is a partner in an initiative led by the European Patients’ Forum to convey to the public how health data can contribute to gaining insights that lead to improvements in the quality and safety of healthcare, and can accelerate research leading to novel treatments, medical devices and software such as artificial intelligence.
The initiative is joint sponsored by EFPIA, EIT Health and MedTech Europe. The role of i~HD is to create content for the web portal and other dissemination materials that explain health data, how it is used, the benefits that arise from its use and how the data and the rights of patients and citizens are protected during this use.
Objective: convey to the public how health data can contribute to gaining insights
Our work included the collection of case studies that illustrate ways in which large-scale health data use has led to health system improvements. We also helped shape and structure the website. We contributed to multi-stakeholder engagement events as well.
The Data Saves Lives campaign and website was launched on 12 November 2019 and obtained a lot of visibility.
