Dear visitor,
The SemanticHealthNet project ended successfully in spring 2015.
If you are interested in the results and further ongoing initiatives, please visit the website of i~HD. European Institute for Innovation through Health Data (i~HD) is a not-for-profit organisation that has been established in 2015, arising in part out of the SementicHealthNet project, to develop and promote best practices in the governance, quality, semantic interoperability and uses of health data, including its reuse for research. An important role of i~HD is to provide independent governance oversight of clinical research platforms and their expanding networks of hospitals.
