We digitalize public health

We bring digital transformation to research.

Why the digital transformation in public health research is needed

The prevention of diseases is the primary task of public health research. Population-level data on disease and well-being provide a comprehensive picture of a population's health status. However, a lack of digital data collection, inadequate data infrastructures, and inconsistent data standards make it difficult for researchers to handle these data and thus make scientific progress. That’s why we need digital transformation in public health research.

Data4Life develops digital solutions that enable public health researchers to securely access the full potential of health data. In this way, the health of a society is maintained and the prevention of diseases is decisively improved.

Standardize structures

Growing amounts of data are becoming digitally accessible for interdisciplinary science and AI-powered research.

Breaking down data silos

Merging data sources creates transparency and enables scientific reuse.

Maintain scientific compatibility

Practicable research data infrastructures create an acceptance for innovative methods in the research community.

We believe in strong collaboration

Only through joint efforts can we transform public health research digitally. Through partnerships with leading international institutions and renowned research facilities, we are creating a network based on consistent data standards and proven strategies that will benefit public health researchers around the world.

Data4Life as a partner

We support the strategy and implementation of digital data collections, with state-of-the-art data infrastructures, and the implementation of analytics tools, to provide access to the growing variety of high-quality healthcare data. In accordance with highest interoperability standards, digitally, comprehensively, and securely.
