InteropEHRate Knowledge Management and Data Mapping Tools selected in Horizon 2020 Innovation Radar
Last year, the Horizon 2020 Innovation Radar shortlisted under the Tech Ready category InteropEHRate knowledge management and data mapping tools. These artefacts enable healthcare providers legacy systems to securely exchange health data with secure patients Electronic Health Records.
Engineering – Ingegneria Informatica SpA (Italy), SIMAVI (Bulgaria) and Universita degli studi di Trento (Italy) are featured as key innovators together with other InteropEHRate consortium partners like A7 Software (Belgium), Byte (Greece), Fondazione Toscana Gabriele Monasterio per la Ricerca Medica e di Sanita Pubblica (Italy), UBITECH Limited (Cyprus) and University of Piraeus Research Centre (Greece).
The Innovation Radar is a European Commission initiative to identify high potential innovations and innovators in EU-funded research and innovation projects. It was created with the aim of identifying breakthrough innovations and innovators emerging from the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme that have the potential to scale up and become champions in their respective industries.
Knowledge management and data mapping tools
InteropEHRate combines innovative multilingual knowledge extraction methods with an agile and interactive methodology for defining the rules that govern data transformations for cross-border health data exchanges. While the processes can be fully automated, they are also fully supervised by human experts who have a full understanding of the data transformations taking place and can intervene quickly to improve the system or make it evolve. The automated data conversion and translation operations are tracked by the system, which can tell practitioners explicitly if a translation or conversion has been made on a given data value.
