A number of The Hyve’s colleagues attended the 7th Health-RI Conference, held Thursday, 6 October, in our hometown Utrecht. We were thrilled to be able to meet colleagues and partners from academia, healthcare, and industry in person at the Jaarbeurs Media Plaza after last year's (very successful) virtual conference. The Hyve was represented by Harry van Haaften, Julia Kurps, Elisa Cirillo, Wouter Franke, Melissa Fernando, and Jessica Singh. Continue reading to find out how The Hyve participated and what they thought of this year’s Health-RI conference.
Health-RI is a Dutch national initiative aimed at facilitating and stimulating an integrated health data infrastructure that is accessible to researchers, citizens, care providers, and industry. They want to enable the optimal use of health data, samples, and images, implement a learning healthcare system and accelerate personalized healthcare.
The Health-RI conference is a great place to meet and discuss ideas on making healthcare more data-driven. The focus of this year's conference was "Setting data in motion."
The Hyve’s contribution consisted of two posters that we presented in the Data Village. The first poster was on “Mapping UK Biobank to the OMOP CDM: development of USAGI,” and the second poster was about “Mapping UK Biobank to the OMOP CDM: challenges and solutions.” Sofia Bazaou presented these posters on behalf of the Real World Data (RWD) team. We also set up a booth in Health-RI’s Data Village and were delighted to talk to everyone who stopped by.
