BD4BO, Big Data for Better Outcomes, will develop platforms for integrating and analysing diverse data sets, focusing on outcomes that matter to patients and generating meaningful insights that aim to help improve healthcare. The BD4BO programme is an initiative to support the evolution towards patient-centred, outcomes-focused sustainable healthcare systems in Europe, funded by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI), the world’s largest public-private partnership for healthresearch.
Apart from ROADMAP, BD4BO covers three additional disease-specific projects: HARMONY (Hematologic Malignancies), BigData@Heart (Cardiovascular diseases) and PIONEER (Prostate Cancer). These projects are already producing deliverables to enable the efficient use of big data and contribute towards improved healthcare systems and patient outcomes – further projects are to come.
