The project Health Data Architecture for Learning, INFOBANCO, aims to develop a regional network architecture for data for health system learning. It is conceived as a standardised repository of health data, combining information derived from different clinical as well as research and administrative systems. The project is meant to be of use in care improvement and innovation, value-based health care (VBHC), biomedical research and other secondary applications.
This architecture is intended to function as a platform that provides services to clinicians, managers, and researchers, making it possible to combine data from multiple sources. It shall be equipped with tools for data governance, collection, transformation, interrogation, visualisation, and analysis to obtain knowledge and support decision making. The quality of the data and the validity and usefulness of this INFOBANCO architecture is to be evaluated.
lNFOBANCO will allow the combination and joint exploitation of health data from different sources of the Madrid Ministry of Health and/or the Madrid Health Service (SERMAS) for secondary use from the different levels of care (primary care, hospitals, emergencies, pharmacy) with both an individual perspective, in the field of personalised and precision medicine, and a population and public health perspective.
The project has a total budget for Phase I of €2.5 million (R&D&I Phase), under the collaboration agreement signed by the Ministry of Health of the Community of Madrid and the Ministry of Science and Innovation in December 2020, within the framework of the Line of Promotion of Demand-Side Innovation (FID) of the third call for proposals) to promote the Public Procurement of Innovation (PPI) in health services.
INFOBANCOis 50% co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF),through a grant awarded by the Ministry of Science and Innovation ,which is part of the Pluri-regional Operational Programme of Spain (POPE) 2014-2020. It reinforces the Community of Madrid’s commitment to this instrument to continue modernising the Administration and improving public services for citizens. It also favours business competitiveness and strengthens public-private collaboration.
This project will run from 25 September 2019 through 30 June 2023.
INFOCAMwill allow the creation of platforms with technological solvency that allow the collection and provision of data for different purposes, with scientific relevance, complying with security and confidentiality requirements, according to ethical guidelines and if socially accepted.
The solution provided will consist of the creation of a health data network, which combines information from different sources, both from clinical and administrative systems.
