I talk often about data being an essential resource which needs to be preserved and managed with great care, just like water – in the interest of the entire society.
Throughout history, we have seen many ingenious ways to shape the flow of water, from the aqueducts in Rome to the great civil engineering feats of the industrial age. This has been a challenge which the finest minds have found fascinating and rewarding to solve.
The entire philosophy of the H2O project is to view technology providers as being our modern version of the civil engineers of the past. We need them to work with us to build the ecosystem that will allow health data to flow in the right way, preserving patients’ rights whilst harnessing the power of data for patients, science and society.
We are thus inviting Expressions of Interest from Digital Health Solution Providers who are interested in joining us in our endeavour to build this ecosystem that will allow patients to measure their outcomes in a standardised way while at the same having full control of their data.
The full Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEI) is here.
We want to work closely with the right partners to provide attractive and innovative solutions to patients and healthcare professionals, whilst at the same time create and maintain a robust ethical governance model around data management.
I invite you to view this short video here from our team, where we talk about what we are looking for in this kind of partnership.
We welcome discussions with any providers who would be interested in partnering with us. Please get in touch if would like to help us to create a way for data, this modern essential resource, to flow in a way which supports patients, science and society.
A webinar will be held for all interested applicants on Friday 1 October 2021 at 2.00-3.30 PM CET. Register for attendance here.

About H2O: The goal of the Health Outcomes Observatory (H2O) is simple yet bold. We want to give patients the tools to measure their outcomes e.g. how they feel, how they experience symptoms etc. Currently, different measurements exist, but there is no standardized may to measure or compare these outcomes. We want to agree on a set of outcomes. By using the same outcomes sets, clinicians and patients will speak the same ‘language’. We believe this will strengthen the voice of patients, keeping them at the heart of Value Based Health Care in Europe and beyond.
