The Data Warehouse project for

Data Providers (hospitals, medical specialists, general practitioners, labs…) spend a lot of time sending data.
By giving the possibility to look at their data or compare their own data with an average we can help them continue their efforts.

The project consists of 3 major parts:

  • Applications (HD4DP and HD4RES): a secure data collection

Although it is not necessary to use both parts in every data collection, the DWH part is used in all of the data collections. When the data collection part is not (yet) used, the data are presented to the DWH in aspecific way. The generically written program will be able to cope with this specificity.

HealthData is a technical facilitator. The register manager is responsible for the quality of the data, the correctness of analysis and the validity of the reporting.

steering committee has been organised for HealthData that decides on priorities, data access etc. All relevant health stakeholders are represented in this steering committee.

HD4DP application - Health Data For Data Providers


HD4DP is a local application accessible via web browser developed by HealthData and installed at the site of the data provider that allows the data provider to extract data from the primary system and map that data into one or more data collections (if possible).

Questions that cannot be answered by the primary systems have to be answered manually in the ‘prefilled’ document.
The goal is to put as many prefilled elements as possible in as many documents as possible.
The documents are managed centrally via metadata.

HD4RES application - Health Data For RESearchers


HD4RES is an application developed by HealthData and installed at Sciensano that allows the manager of the data collection to communicate with the data provider without knowing the identification of the patient.Data are sent automatically or by pressing a submit button to the central HD4RES application via eHealth.A mechanism of encryption is put in place assuring that nobody has access to the patient identifier and medical information except the data provider.
