The Health Outcomes Observatory Consortium (H2O) and Aarhus University Hospital announce the signing of a joint collaboration agreement.
The purpose of the agreement is to enable Aarhus University Hospital to set up a National Observatory in Denmark and also host the Pan European Observatory. This agreement is the formalization of an existing Memorandum of Understanding.
Aarhus University Hospital, in collaboration with the Danish Medicines Agency and The Danish Health Data Authority, can now begin establishing the governance and network required to run a local observatory in Denmark. When launched, this Observatory will open up the H2O network to Danish patients, hospitals and healthcare providers to begin collecting and sharing PROs at scale.
All of the national H2O Observatories will eventually link together via a Pan European Observatory. This agreement is confirmation that the Pan European Observatory will be based in Denmark with an office located in Aarhus University Hospital.
“We feel both excited and honored to be announcing this partnership. Aarhus University Hospital has shown outstanding thought leadership in the space of health data and health outcomes and has demonstrated genuine commitment to putting the patient at the centre of clinical practice. We are thrilled to have the benefit of their insights and deep expertise.”
— Meni Styliadou, Takeda, Co-Lead of H2O
“Establishing a Danish Observatory is a great opportunity for H2O to increase the power of the aggregated data and therefore to advance health outcomes research across Europe. We are delighted in this progress in establishing the Pan-European Observatory and welcome Denmark as a collaborator.”
— Tanja Stamm, Medical University of Vienna, Coordinator and Scientific Co-Lead of H2O
“Aarhus University Hospital has a long standing commitment to improving patient outcomes and associating with this kind of project is well aligned with our strategy on providing high-quality and data-based clinical impact.”
— Poul Blaabjerg, CEO of Aarhus University Hospital
“We’re at a pivotal time in healthcare and these kinds of partnerships can really unleash innovation in healthcare because no one can do it alone.”
— Diana Riknagel, Chief Innovation Officer of Aarhus University Hospital
A core feature of the H2O governance model is that it can operate at scale and H2O is always open to new collaborations. Please get in touch with our communications contacts if you would like to learn more.
