BigMedilytics is an international collaboration between partners from academia and industry across Europe. It aims to transform Europe’s Healthcare sector by using state-of-the-art Big Data technologies to achieve breakthrough productivity in the sector by reducing cost, improving patient outcomes and delivering better access to healthcare facilities simultaneously, covering the entire Healthcare Continuum – from Prevention to Diagnosis, Treatment and Home Care throughout Europe.
In particular, we are focusing on applying latest big data and machine learning technologies to the use case nephrology to measure and analyze clinical performance indicators, integrate predicitive models, and measure their impact on clinical routine.

The HiGHmed consortium aims to develop and use innovative information infrastructures to increase the efficiency of clinical research and to swiftly translate research results into validated improvements of patient care. These aims are tightly connected with challenges to integrate and further develop solutions of innovative, internationally interoperable data integration and methods, with the aim to demonstrate their added value for health research and patient care. The concepts must be designed in a way that will help to develop sustainable structures and with the perspective for an easy roll-out to other hospitals. You might want to refer to the HiGHmed consoritum website for further details.
We are proud that our Analyze Genomes platform was selected as a distinguished big data project in Germany. Read more about it in the publication “Germany — Excellence in Big Data” published by the Federal Association for Information Technology, Telecommunications and New Media (BITKOM).
The slide deck of the presentation “Real-time Exploration of the Cancer Genome, the Human Immune System (REHIS) and other NCT projects” of the workshop “Big Medical Data in Precision Medicine: Challenges or Opportunities?” on Jan 19, 2016 in London is online available now.
The aim of the Smart Analysis Health Research Access (SAHRA) cooperation project is to provide scientific analysis methods incorporating latest in-memory database technology for analysis of longitudinal health data. These methods support research and the development of innovative solutions and products by providing real-time analysis of longitudinal health data for the first time. Public and governmental institutes as well as small and mid-sized healthcare enterprises are the target audience of the project. Latest data protection and privacy measures are taken to protect any data on the SAHRA platform in compliance with latest German and International data protection laws.
