On the 04th of december, INFOPOLE organized with the support of CETIC, WeLL, MedTech Wallonia & BioWin a virtual matchmaking devoted to medical data exploitation and opportunities between stakeholders from ICT and health sector.

Capture d’écran 2020-12-07 à 09.07.57The participants had the opportunity to discover and meet the SMEs participating in the INAH project, a unique portal for processing health data and ensuring compliance with the ethical constraints of data protection.

A good inspiration of ethical exploitation of medical data for the future candidates to the DIGI-C-CUBE open call.

This pilot device will allow universities, companies developing innovative health solutions but also actors involved in fundamental and applied research to send a request to a single platform which will analyze this request on the basis of secure health data. INAH will then not share the patient data, which remains in the secure environment of the platform and the Walloon Health Network, but the results of a statistical analysis of the correlations obtained...

Objective: to identify certain predictive elements of future pathologies or the eligibility of a patient for treatment. INAH will then cross-reference these predictions with the health data and inform the doctor maintaining a therapeutic relationship with the patient of the risks incurred and the therapeutic solutions available.
