The work in BigMed is organized through four clinical areas: rare diseases, colorectal cancer, sudden cardiac death and frost bites.
Solutions suggested by BigMed will be based on the clinical needs identified in each disease area and will focus on the following themes: digital technologies, ICT infrastructure and data provisioning, legal and ethical issues, bioinformatic pipelines and data sharing solutions for genomics.
The solutions can take the form of
- clinical decision support implemented in electronic health records and other currently used applications,
- tools to automate data collection, such as large-scale phenotype extraction from medical records based on natural language processing,
- new legal methods to evaluate anonymity,
- and a data driven innovation platform.
We are happy to cooperate and share experiences from our work, please get in touch!
