DAQCORD is a framework for the design, documentation and reporting of data curation methods in order to advance the scientific rigour, reproducibility and analysis of the data. This lecture covers the rationale for developing the framework, the process in which the framework was developed, and ends with a presentation of the framework. While the driving use case for DAQCORD was clinical traumatic brain injury research, the framework is applicable to clinical studies in other domains of clinical neuroscience research.
This lecture discusses differential privacy and synthetic data in the context of medical data sharing in clinical neurosciences.
This lecture focuses on ontologies for clinical neurosciences.
This talk presents state-of-the-art methods for ensuring data privacy with a particular focus on medical data sharing across multiple organizations.
This presentation discusses the impact of data sharing in stroke.
This talks discusses data sharing in the context of dementia. It explains why data sharing in dementia is important, how data is usually shared in the field and illustrates two examples: the Netherlands Consortium Dementia cohorts and the European Platform for Neurodegenerative Diseases.
This talk introduces data sharing initiatives in Epilepsy, particularly across Europe.
This talks presents an overview of the potential for data federation in stroke research.
This lecture explains the need for data federation in medicine and how it can be achieved.
The Medical Informatics Platform (MIP) is a platform providing federated analytics for diagnosis and research in clinical neuroscience research. The federated analytics is possible thanks to a distributed engine that executes computations and transfers information between the members of the federation (hospital nodes). In this talk the speaker will describe the process of designing and implementing new analytical tools, i.e. statistical and machine learning algorithms. Mr. Sakellariou will further describe the environment in which these federated algorithms run, the challenges and the available tools, the principles that guide its design and the followed general methodology for each new algorithm. One of the most important challenges which are faced is to design these tools in a way that does not compromise the privacy of the clinical data involved. The speaker will show how to address the main questions when designing such algorithms: how to decompose and distribute the computations and what kind of information to exchange between nodes, in order to comply with the privacy constraint mentioned above. Finally, also the subject of validating these federated algorithms will be briefly touched.
The Medical Informatics Platform (MIP) Dementia had been installed in several memory clinics across Europe allowing them to federate their real-world databases. Research open access databases had also been integrated such as ADNI (Alzheimer’s Dementia Neuroimaging Initiative), reaching a cumulative case load of more than 5,000 patients (major cognitive disorder due to Alzheimer’s disease, other major cognitive disorder, minor cognitive disorder, controls). The statistic and machine learning tools implemented in the MIP allowed researchers to conduct easily federated analyses among Italian memory clinics (Redolfi et al. 2020) and also across borders between the French (Lille), the Swiss (Lausanne) and the Italian (Brescia) datasets.
This talks presents ethics requirements of the Medical Informatics Platform, a data sharing platform for medical data using data federation mechanisms. The talk presents how the Medical Informatics Platform (MIP) works and which ethical requirements need to be considered when working with federated data.
This lecture discusses risk-based anonymization approaches for medical research.
