Applications of health data for better health outcome

Within Semmelweis University we have a high variety of health data arising from our care activities, as well as from our participation in several R&D&I projects both on national and international level. Our aim is to collect, cross reference and manipulate those data so that the new outcomes will result in more efficient and effective care activities, thus ultimately deliver better health. Then those real life applications can be reflected in our educational activities.


The innovation is not in the collection and the analysis of the data that can be done on small data sets anywhere. We believe, that the discovery of links and bridges between the datasets will lead to new questions, and exploring those questions can be translated into new algorithms, which will enhance the care outcomes


The market for such new findings, and the derived products is unlimited. Industrial partners from pharma and clinical research are looking to utilize such correlations, IT industry is also pretty active in providing supportive applications. Academia and researchers are eager to figure the needs and directions of new industrial trends. Finally government is always happy to receive evidence based support for both policy and daily operational level to manoeuvre the healthcare sector whithin the always limited budgetary boundaries.
