Just in time for the MIRACUM Kick-Off Symposium, we proudly present the first issue of the MIRACUM journal, published on February 22nd 2018. This journal illustrates the MIRACUM concepts/use cases/results and presents the highlights of the last year. It also gives a regular update and review of the Medical Informatics Initiative in general.
The first issue addresses the Medical Informatics Initiative in general, briefly introduces the other three funded consortia and presents the synopsis of the MIRACUM concept. We present the core concepts of the MIRACUM Data Integration Centres and the MIRACOLIX toolbox as well as the Uses Cases and our programme for strengthening medical informatics. Finally, results from first federated large scale analysis on stroke and colorectal cancer treatment (which were published in international scientific journals in January 2019) are illustrated.
