Medical Informatics meets werewolves– this fantastic mixture was possible at the first MIRACUM Summer School, that we organised from July 29th to August 3rd 2018 in the Alsace. Of course we concentrated in the first place on topics such as IT commu
The University Medicine Mainz offers two positions in the Mainzer DIZ team (data integration centre). This first call is limited to December 2021 but might be prolonged. One position focuses on the general conception and establishment of the data int
We are very happy to announce that a Focus Topic on The German Medical Informatics Initiative has just been published with open access in Methods of Information in Medicine. It gives a comprehensive overview about this highly relevant funding initiat
Many clinical studies fail in the very beginning due to insufficient patient recruitment numbers. To improve this process with IT solutions and available routine data, we will integrate recruiting platforms in the CIS infrastructure of the MIRACUM university hospitals. Regular evaluation and feedback loops help to increase the quality and completeness of the required data elements.
MIRACUM Data Integration Centres enable the identification and stratification of patient cohorts based on clinical parameters, biomarkers, and molecular/genomic data to develop predictive models. Such models support physicians in diagnostic and therapeutic decisions by SMART apps based on FHIR. A first focus will be on Asthma/COPD as well as brain tumour cases.
Precision medicine enables individualized cancer therapies, as many tumors can be characterized by so-called “driver mutations” that trigger different therapeutic routes. Such complex genetic information, together with other data from the patient record and imaging, are summarized in molecular tumor boards. MIRACUM will support and optimize the process of quality assurance, data processing, and data integration and deliver innovative tools to support clinicians by efficient visualization in making right decisions.
