About the organisation
Basic details : The European Institute for Innovation through Health Data (i~HD) has been formed as one of the key sustainable entities arising from the Electronic Health Records for Clinical Research (EHR4CR) and SemanticHealthNet projects, in collaboration with several other European projects and initiatives supported by the European Commission.
Mission : The mission of The European Institute for Innovation through Health Data (i~HD) is to enable, coordinate, and accelerate the efficient development and deployment of interoperable and seamless eHealth solutions and research strategies, towards achieving best practices and sustainable integrated person-centred health care, to optimise health and wellness in Europe, and beyond. It aims to guide and catalyse the best, most efficient and trustworthy uses of health data and interoperability, for optimising health and knowledge discovery.
Vision : The vision of i~HD is to become the European organization of reference for guiding and catalyzing the best, most efficient and trustworthy uses of health data and interoperability, for optimizing health and knowledge discovery.
i~HD has been established in recognition that there is a need to tackle areas of challenge in the successful scaling up of innovations that critically rely on high-quality and interoperable health data, to sustain and propagate the results of health ICT research, and to specifically address obstacles to using health data that are not being addressed by other current initiatives.
