holds valuable information that can give us better health and a better quality of life. To tap into this potential, healthcare organisations, government, industry, and academia alike need to be able to handle this mountain of data in the right way. This is more easily said than done and takes a collective effort.
How can we reuse health and health-related data in the best possible way? And what is needed to do so at the scale we require? To answer these and other questions, a series of panels was organised in the autumn of 2022. Goal of the initiative: improving the alignment of new and existing health data initiatives that are often scattered across Belgium.
Representatives of key stakeholders from across the Belgian healthcare landscape were present at the panels.
Who organized these panels?
The round tables were not organised by one single organisation. So who are "we"? We are a multi-stakeholder collective of individuals from across the Belgian healthcare landscape. Each of us has their own background, but also shares the same belief: data saves lives and collaboration is key.
With this initiative we want(ed) to help accelerate the (re)use of real-world data in healthcare, in the interest of individual members of the public or patients and of public health. The movement is open to everybody from the wider healthcare ecosystem.
When and where are these panels take place?
A total of 5 panels was organised between November and the middle of December of 2022.
