The vision of the Linked2Safety project is to advance clinical practice and accelerate medical research, to improve the quality of healthcare, benefiting public health, and to enhance patients’ safety; by providing pharmaceutical companies, healthcare professionals and patients with an innovative semantic interoperability framework, a sustainable business model, and a scalable technical infrastructure & platform for the efficient, homogenized access to and the effective, viable utilization of the increasing wealth of medical information contained in the EHRs deployed and maintained at regional and/or national level across Europe, dynamically interconnecting distributed patients data to medical research efforts, respecting patients’ anonymity, as well as European and national legislation.
Our CEO and Head of Research is the Scientific Coordinator of this project through his University of Cyprus affiliation.
