As part of the scientific school InterHealth2022 - Interoperability in healthcare: approaches and perspectives to preserve the semantics of clinical data and improve their quality, a satellite event open to the public will be held on Monday 10 October: "Iniziative internazionali per la condivisione di dati clinici e biomedici".
The event, organised by CRS4 in collaboration with the Biomedical Research Support Unit of Sardegna Ricerche and the I FAIR Programme team, will take place starting at 14:45, at the Auditorium of Sardegna Ricerche, Science and Technology Park, Pula (CA).
The huge amount of clinical and biomedical data generated daily by medical devices and clinical information systems could dramatically improve the quality of healthcare services, while also supporting translational medicine and paving the way towards personalised approaches. Nevertheless, the lack of integration between systems and repositories supporting clinical practice and research activities leads to the creation of information silos that severely limit the potential impact of the collected data. Interoperability is therefore critical and represents a multifaceted challenge, since the effective use of the generated information requires not only a communication based on standard languages, protocols and guidelines (such as HL7 and IHE), but it is also essential that the exact meaning of the exchanged information is properly shared and understood, over time and across different sources.
