Swiss Applied eHealth Day
Wednesday April 29th, 2020
Throughout the day several Universities of Applied Sciences in Switzerland will showcase concrete projects with applied nature from the eHealth sector. There will be around 20 presentations in the form of posters and demos where attendees can freely interact and discuss the presented projects in a casual manner with the authors. The presentations will include a variety of topics from a broad spectrum such as radiographics, patient care quality, diet, optimization of hospital resources, physiotherapy and others. The presentations will be split into two sessions with one in the morning and another in the afternoon. At the end of the day, there will be time left for networking, discussing new ideas and potential future collaborations.

Swiss Personalized Health Initiative
The Swiss Personalized Health Network initiative (SPHN) contributes to the development, implementation and validation of coordinated data infrastructures in order to make health-relevant data interoperable and shareable for research in Switzerland. SPHN has adopted a federative approach by building upon – and supporting – existing data sources and infrastructures across the country. To make health data interoperable and accessible for research, SPHN rallies all decision-makers from key clinical, research-, research support institutions and patient organizations around the same table.
The SPHN will hold a scientific day event at MIE2020 presenting the current status of the initiative.
Fair4Health and HL7 Datathon
The EU H2020 project, in collaboration with HL7 and Elsevier, will held a one-day datathon on suing large clinical datasets to promote data-science driven research, and putting the FAIR data principles in action.
From fundamental physics to medical applications
CERN will held a workshop to present its strategy leveraging fundamental physics to medical applications, covering the development of infrastructure for the management and analysis of medical data, including ethics, regulation and privacy conscious tools, and a platform for computer simulations of biological dynamics, including machine learning based human recognition and health monitoring system, such as computer-aided defects and anomalies detection for medical images.
The EU-US Symposium
A summit to highlight cutting-edge research in biomedical and health informatics to stimulate transatlantic cooperation, collaboration, and capacity building by policy dialogue and exploration of novel opportunities in HIT between Europe and the United States. The outcome of the summit will be a vision statement for a US-EU Alliance for Advances in Biomedical and Health Informatics.

WHO family of classifications: the ICD-11 update
The World Health Organization Family of International Classifications, or WHO-FIC, is a set of integrated classification products that share similar features and can be used individually or jointly to provide information on different aspects of health and health systems. The classifications are designed to cover the core dimensions of death, disease, functioning, disability and health interventions.1
They can be used to support the production of health information nationally and internationally, to inform health system financing and resource allocation, evidence-based practice, monitoring of health outcomes and access to services, and the assessment of the health of individuals and populations. Therefore, the WHO-FIC facilitates the compilation of internationally consistent and comparable data.
ICD-11 is its most prominent and modern component, and ICF and ICHI are being moved to the same technology level.
This original reason for existence is embedded in the constitution of the World Health Organization, which states that: “Each Member [State] shall provide statistical and epidemiological reports in a manner to be determined by the Health Assembly” (article 64),2 and further detailed in the Health Nomenclature Regulations.3
