What is the EBRAINS Medical Data Analytics Service?
The growing need to increase the capacity to share health data to accelerate progress in clinical neuroscience and medicine, is illustrated by the numerous initiatives aiming at collating big data. Promotion of data sharing and the implementation of standardised harmonisation rules reduces the burden of unexploited research and plays a critical role in mitigating the problems of reduced sample sizes.
The Medical Data Analytics Service provides two unique EBRAINS platforms, covering key areas in clinical neuroscientific research
- The Medical Informatics Platform (MIP), federating de-centralised large clinical datasets (development started in 2013)
- The Human Intracerebral EEG Platform (HIP), dedicated to centralised human intracerebral EEG (iEEG) data (development started in 2020)
The Medical Data Analytics Service aims to leverage and maximise international use and re-use of medical data.
