i~HD Inaugural Conference

10 March 2016, Paris, France.
i~HD is a not-for-profit European institute, with a mission to guide and catalyse the quality, interoperability and trustworthy uses of health data, for optimising health and knowledge discovery. This Inaugural Conference will mark the parallel launch of a novel European platform to support multi-centre clinical research. This operational platform, the result of the European project EHR4CR (Electronic Health Records for Clinical Research), can connect securely to the data within multiple hospital EHR systems and clinical data warehouses across Europe, to enable a trial sponsor to predict the number of eligible patients for a candidate clinical trial protocol, to assess its feasibility and to locate the most relevant hospital sites.

The deep aim of this initiative is to provide patients with faster access to safe and efective medicines, improving health outcomes across Europe. This will be feasible by accelerating the development and achieving best practice that is patient-centered, leveraging personalized medicine for better patient care and a more inclusive route to inclusion in clinical trials. Eventually, it will lead to enhanced treatment options, giving patients faster access to innovative medicines and more personalised care pathways.

i~HD is an outcome and sustainability of projects from the European Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) and the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme. It will enable, coordinate, and accelerate the eficient development and deployment of interoperable and seamless eHealth solutions and research strategies, towards achieving best practices and sustainable integrated person-centered health care, to optimize health and wellness in Europe, and beyond.

This inaugural conference will present the IMI EHR4CR platform and its adoption programme for 2016. It will also spotlight the challenges and state-of-the-art approaches to improving the quality and semantic interoperability of clinical data. The conference will include patient's perspective on the benefits of reusing their data for research presented by Mary Baker, former President of the European Brain Council, one of the keynote speakers.

The conference will take place at University Paris 6, Campus Les Cordeliers in Paris and is open to healthcare providers from across Europe, to EFPIA members, patient associations, health professional associations, the health ICT industry, and standards bodies.
