In order to implement the transnational registry for fractures, the project partners developed a Common Data Set. The definition of the Data Set and its implementation is led by the BFCC infrastructure and data management partner Institute for Community Medicine at the University of Greifswald (UMG). The Common Data Set is the basis to answer research questions about fracture scenarios, treatment procedures and complications. Additionally, the Common Data Set will facilitate benchmarking among countries and to describe best practices.
The BFCC project invited stakeholders from academia, clinics and industry to identify needs in view to the planned transnational fracture registry platform. The participants of the ‘Requirement Engineering Workshop’ discussed especially the draft of the developed data set and suggested improvements.
The BFCC project partners will face the challenge of sharing eHealth data across borders. Therefore, an EU data protection conformance for the transnational fracture registry, the heart piece of the project, is required. By this, the transnational fracture registry BFCC provides a working example for overcoming the barriers that stop the free flow of eHealth data.
Furthermore, the BFCC project partners organised a seminar at EU level to discuss this particular topic with eHealth experts from the Baltic Sea Region. With all these activities, BFCC makes an important contribution to the digitalisation agenda for the Baltic Sea Region.
