Health

Managing information and handling of very large and dynamic datasets is at the core of providing a cost-effective and high-quality healthcare system

Poor information management is widely seen as one of the main bottlenecks in improving healthcare.

Major challenges are:

  • the (semantic) interoperability between systems,
  • intelligent support for medical decision-making,
  • bridging the gap between medical research and clinical care, and
  • providing transparent quality indicators.
