MIRACUM 0.9 released

After nine month of intense work with more than 100 MIRACUM team members contributing to the various pilot projects and to the MIRACUM grant proposal for the BMBF MI-I networking and developing phase MIRACUM version 0.9 has just been released.


We are proud that we have already achieved two joint MIRACUM publications and implemented a Version 0.9 data sharing infrastructure based on eight DIC implementation. In the last three weeks we could even extend this data sharing network in a cross-consortia cooperation with HD4CR, resulting in distributed proof-of-concept analysis based on 11 i2b2 and OMOP research data repository instances.

We thank all our MIRACUM team members for their tremendous engagement in the last nine month – you are a great team!

We are looking forward to leverage the value of our eight DIC data together in future research projects
