How to create an extensible, secure and scalable architecture for storing and exploration of patient data?
Project 1 focuses on the collection of data. This project is one step further down the line: creating a platform to store and explore patient data. That needs to happen in a safe, secure, user-friendly manner. In short, we aim to create an extensible, secure and scalable architecture that allows users to store, explore, and discover patient data. That includes the hardware for feeding continuous vital-sign data to the platform.
We will be working on:
- A prototype with content in line with the General Data Protection Regulation;
- an application programming interface to retrieve and store data;
- and a vital-signs monitoring hardware platform for continuous monitoring of patients and enriching the database with live data.
Medical expertise at Erasmus MC
Erasmus MC will be the domain expert. It is necessary to have medical experts influencing the design principles. Only then can we build a database that can serve as a medium for medical analytics, ensuring that GDPR and privacy issues are respected. Lastly, the hospital has expertise in consent and privacy of patients and distributed data analysis.
State-of-the-art technique at TU Delft
The TU Delft has expertise in state-of-the-art data management techniques. Researchers will set up a prototypical platform for storing and accessing medical data on a per-patient and collective level.
Converging TU Delft and Erasmus MC is necessary to develop methods for allowing patients to control how their data is used. Our researchers will collect lifelong data, enable patients to disclose information on-demand, and implement an autonomous vital-signs monitoring platform.
