Ok, got it
With the rapid development in health data science in recent years, in particular around electronic healthcare records and associated coded outcomes, there now exists a gap between technical innovation and robust clinical evidence. For example, the broad use of coding schemes for outcomes in both observational and randomised research that lacks any structural basis or minimum quality requirements.
In this context, the BigData@Heart Consortium, which is a jointly funded by the EU and industry to address key unmet needs in cardiovascular data science, organised an online stakeholder meeting on July 7th, 2020 to guide future research and clinical decision support by raising awareness of current limitations and providing a framework for best practice approaches for
The event brought together regulators, journal editors, industry, funders, payers, patients and cardiology professionals within the European Society of Cardiology.
Scientific experts and key opinion leaders were assigned to a breakout session - (1) Definitions of disease in EHRs & the need for common standards, or (2) Coding equivalence and implications for clinical trials.
The BigData@Heart online meeting will prepare the groundwork for an in-person meeting on October 26th, 2020 to be held at the European Heart Agency in Brussels (10:30 until 16:00 local time).
There will be an iterative process, so the online meeting, in person meeting and offline communications and drafts will all contribute to a final white paper.
