HEREDITARY Project Main Outcomes

1. Enhanced Linkage of Health Data

HEREDITARY integrates various health data sources, including genomics, into a secure, federated system. By harmonizing data structure, format, and quality across borders, the project facilitates better linkage of health data. This comprehensive data integration aids in developing new treatments and disease diagnosis, addressing challenges posed by diverse data sources and enhancing understanding of complex genetic and environmental interactions.

2. Advanced Digital Tools for Health Data

The project provides advanced digital tools for secure, cost-effective integration, management, and analysis of health data. By using visual analytics, HEREDITARY makes complex data accessible and understandable for clinicians, researchers, and policymakers. This approach maximizes data reuse, avoids duplication, and supports improved clinical decision-making and research outcomes.

3. Comprehensive Disease Understanding

HEREDITARY leverages AI and advanced analytics to integrate multimodal health data, enhancing understanding of disease risk factors, causes, and treatments. The platform enables identification of patient subgroups with distinct characteristics, supporting personalized medicine. By predicting and validating new gene-disease relationships, HEREDITARY advances medical knowledge and therapeutic strategies.

4. Data-Driven Solutions for Healthcare

HEREDITARY‘s Knowledge Graph (KG) provides an extensive, accessible resource for clinicians, policymakers, and researchers. The visual and interactive interface allows for querying gene-drug-disease associations and risk factors. This evidence-based resource supports health policy development, public health campaigns, and societal discussions, improving medical outcomes and public health understanding.

5. Patient-Focused Health Interventions

HEREDITARY integrates health data to improve disease prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring. Establishing Health Social Labs, the project co-designs and tests health information measures with stakeholders. This collaborative, multidisciplinary approach ensures interventions are data-driven and patient-focused, leading to better healthcare services and patient outcomes.

6. Increased Trust in Health Data Sharing

HEREDITARY addresses ethical and legal concerns related to health data use, ensuring compliance with GDPR and other regulations. By promoting transparency, accountability, and secure data sharing, the project enhances public trust in health data re-use for research and healthcare. Recommendations to improve legal frameworks further support responsible data use and sharing.
