Mapping and analysing national and international inspirational case studies with the focus on public health interoperability and developing empirical work on interoperability through case studies and pilots
Motivated by the need to establish a holistic European model and data infrastructure able to translate data, information and knowledge into support for policymaking using services based on data linkage, data sharing, data management and knowledge development, and stemming from a number of case studies, WP10 pilots the methods and techniques required to reach this goal. This is developed based on the building blocks defined in the European Interoperability Framework (EIF), and get inspiration from the EIF for e-Health. WP10 maps, structures and pilots interoperability levels defined by the EIF as a support for policy making using services based on data linkage, sharing and management, and knowledge development.
- 10.1 Map and identify a number of best practices in the MS with the focus on public health surveillance and/or research, where interoperability, data linkage, data sharing and data management, data security and privacy issues play an important role.
- 10.2 Based on results from 10.1, analyse how legal and organisational interoperability was or is being addressed. The exercise also includes the analysis of enablers and barriers linked to these two EIF domains. Outcomes are reported to public health stakeholders, particularly policymakers.
- 10.3 Based on results from 10.1, analyse how semantic and technical interoperability was or is being addressed. The exercise also includes the analysis of enablers and barriers affecting these two EIF domains. Solutions that have been successfully implemented in other infrastructures like research infrastructures are also analysed.
- 10.4 Carry out empirical case studies on interoperability, data linkage, data sharing and data management in a number of topics of interest for public health policymaking in Europe. The different case studies provide insight into the methods and techniques used to get sound and relevant outputs from different data sources in different countries. The case studies also provide insight into the enablers and barriers that influence interoperability achievement and focus on the identification of key issues in relation to the new European General Data Protection Regulation.
