Owing to the highly fragmented health systems in European countries, gaining access to a consistent record of individual citizens that involves cross-border activities is very difficult. MyHealthAvatar is a proof of concept for the digital representation of patient health status. It is designed as a lifetime companion for individual citizens that facilitates the collection of, and access to, long-term health-status information. This is extremely valuable for clinical decisions and offers a promising approach to acquire population data to support clinical research, leading to strengthened multidisciplinary research excellence in supporting innovative medical care.

iManageCancer partners BED, USAAR and FORTH are also partners in MyHealthAvatar.

The goal of EURECA is to enable seamless, secure, scalable and consistent linkage of healthcare information residing in electronic health record (EHR) systems with information in clinical research information systems, such as clinical trials. Achieving semantic interoperability among EHR and clinical trial systems is at the core of the EURECA project, as it is the basis for enabling many of the software services and tools developed in the project. Eighteen partners are working together to build software services that help to securely interconnect the two systems. Successful linkage will deliver several benefits for patients, including early detection of patient safety issues and more efficient recruitment of eligible patients to trials. The systems will also enable long term follow up of patients.

iManageCancer partners Philips, USAAR, FORTH, ecancer, and Fraunhofer IBMT are also partners in this project.
