The Swiss Personalized Health Network supports 15 projects with CHF 15.7 million
The Swiss Personalized Health Network (SPHN) has announced its 2018 contribution to data infrastructure, towards making health-related data interoperable and shareable across Switzerland. The SPHN is allocating CHF 15.7 million to support 15 projects. We are proud to mention that four of these successful projects are SCTO-affiliated!
For three projects, the Department of Clinical Research of the University Hospital Basel was awarded funding. In close collaboration with SCTO network partners, they successfully submitted the following projects:
- Development and implementation of an electronic General Consent (e-GC)
- Development and implementation of data governance structure in clinical research
- NLP-powered mapping of clinical reports onto SNOMED-CT concepts for tumour classification (NLPforTC)
Furthermore, the SCTO partner SwissPedNet, was also successful with its project proposal led by Prof Claudia Kuehni: Harmonising the collection of health-related data and biospecimens in paediatric hospitals throughout Switzerland.
