Meaningful Integration of Data Analytics and Services – The MIDAS Project

MIDAS (Meaningful Integration of Data Analytics and Services) will address the needs of policy makers and citizens across Europe by delivering a unified big data platform.  This platform will map, acquire, manage, model, process and exploit existing heterogeneous health care data and other governmental data along with external open data to enable the creation of evidence-based actionable information. As a result, this platform will inform better long term policy-making decisions and yield a positive impact on point of care health in all policies across Europe at regional, national and European levels. We would like to present some interim work on analytics at policy level for diabetes, and prescription drug use, as well as some of the initial work for Ethics, Privacy and Governance, within a healthcare domain.
