Welcome to the European Health Data & Evidence Network (EHDEN), an IMI 2 consortium with 23 partners operating in Europe.
It is with sadness and shared concern that we in EHDEN witness the conflict in Ukraine, and our thoughts are with our colleagues living there, hoping they can endure this humanitarian crisis following the invasion by Russian forces. As a project we have, and will remain focused on ensuring representation, and collaboration with Central, Eastern and Southeastern European countries.
Our aim is to improve health outcomes for patients and their providers via the use of at scale real world evidence across the region. Around this conflict we need to ensure truth and transparency above all, and only through collaboration can we improve our world. We share alongside the rest of the scientific community a heartfelt wish for a peaceful resolution and avoidance of further bloodshed.
EHDEN was launched in November 2018 to address the current challenges in generating insights and evidence from real-world clinical data at scale, to support patients, clinicians, payers, regulators, governments, and the industry in understanding wellbeing, disease, treatments, outcomes and new therapeutics and devices.
EHDEN is proud to be collaborating with OHDSI colleagues in ongoing studies since March 2020 on COVID-19, see more information here and on the OHDSI website here. Meanwhile, our thanks to all who we work with in reaching our collective mission.
Our fourth and final SME call concluded in April and the 6th Data Partner call has concluded on June 14th, with the final, 7th call in October - November. The 2022 Data Partner & SME open call schedule can be viewed here.
Importantly the EHDEN Portal launched its first component, the Data Partner Catalogue, which launched at the OHDSI Europe Symposium on June 24th - more here.
Continue to stay safe and well, and to continued collaboration in 2022.
