MII Use-Case ACRIBIS Kick-Off

The project “Advancing Cardiovascular Risk Identification with Structured Clinical Documentation and Biosignal Derived Phenotype Synthesis (ACRIBIS)” has officially started. In the project, routine cardiological clinical documentation will be structured and standardized across locations. In addition, the infrastructure for automated analysis of biosignal data, such as ECG, will be expanded and integrated into the DIZ infrastructure at the hospitals. These data sources will be used to improve risk models that can predict the development and course of cardiovascular diseases and thus support better treatment in the future. Over a period of four years, the Universitätsmedizin Essen (UME) will cooperate with numerous german university hospitals in the context of the Medizininformatik-Initiative (MII).
