FAIR4Health is a project funded by the European Commission under H2020 Science with and for Society (SwafS-04-2018) topic. It has been carried out by 16 partners from 10 different countries and lasted 36 months, between 1 December 2018 and 30 November 2021. FAIR4Health encourages the application of FAIR principles in data derived from publicly funded health research initiatives, so that they can be shared and reused within the European Union (EU) health research community, defining an effective EU-wide strategy for the use of FAIR in Health.
The FAIR4Health consortium consisting of experts from different fields including health research, data managers, medical informatics, software developers, standardization bodies and lawyers will meet on 24 November 2021 in Seville, Spain with the aim of analyzing the main outputs and conclusions of the project, including the assessment and the main considerations obtained after the completion of the FAIR4Health clinical demonstrators.
In the clinical demonstrations of the project, the application of the FAIR principles was carried out in different countries to facilitate the reuse and sharing of health data. The FAIR4Health partners worked on the clinical validation of the technological solutions in terms of computational mechanisms that allow the analysis of health data distributed throughout Europe. This resulted in the performance of two specific use cases: (1) Identification of multi-morbidity patterns and correlation of polypharmacy in the risk of mortality in complex chronic patients, (2) the service for early prediction of the risk of 30-day readmission of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
