Deeper, more comprehensive data

Now possible thanks to our technology and key EU Legislation

The Data Governance Act and other key EU legislative packages provide the legal framework for the consent-based used of medical data for research and development. We use Distributed Ledger Technology to provide legally-provable instances of consent, gathered through our global medical data donation program. The result? Better insights from more comprehensive data sets for researchers, gathered ethically and based on user consent.

We would love to hear from you.

Inspiring trust in science

We follow highest ethical standards of data access. Working in partnership with the Global Medical Data Donation program, all of the pseudonymised or personal data we source is collected with the informed consent of the patient concerned. With our technological system, patients provide legal consent for us to access their data and they can revoke consent at any time, in line with EU legislation for consent-based secondary data usage.

We are the first entity to build and implement the technological and infrastructural system for pan-European medical data donation, based on the Data Governance Act and European Health Data Space legislation. Transfers of data are vetted through an independent Transparency Council, which includes representatives from patients’ organizations.

Due to recent EU legislation and our unique positioning, we are able to source an unprecedented amount of data with proven provenance from sources that have never been easily accessible to researchers before, such as healthcare facilities and hospitals, diagnostic labs, wearables, health apps and others. Our multi-source data can be incrementally updated, providing you with a longitudinal and complete view of patients across the entire patient pathway.

Our system was created by leading experts in European data and healthcare law such as the GDPR and Data Governance Act, and has passed through stringent third-party legal assessment. Combined with the right technologies, we can provide legal certainty that the anonymized data we provide you with was collected legally, and with informed consent. Alongside our strict data processing protocols, our system sets the industry standard for legal compliance.

Our system solves some of the biggest challenges in medical research.
