Bridging Information and Data Generation for Evidence-based Health Policy and Research

Bridge-Health

Project Logo

As a continuation of the work on the IDB and JAMIE projects, The Injury Surveillance Platform, i.e. a network of national European Injury Data Base (IDB) centres, which fulfils a core role in implementing a program of continuous improvement in injury data gathering within European countries has joined the Bridge-Health Project. As partners in the previous project, we continue to be involved in the European Injury Data Base as National Data Administrators.

BRIDGE Health stands for BRidging Information and Data Generation for Evidence-based Health policy and research. The project was launched in May 2015 and will be running for 30 months. It includes 31 partners in 16 countries. The project bridges the best of EU projects in domains of population and health system monitoring, indicator development, health examination surveys, environment and health, population injury and disease registries, clinical and administrative health data collection systems and methods of health systems monitoring and evaluation. BRIDGE Health is supported under the EU action of the Public Health Programme implemented by the Consumers, Health and Food Executive Agency of the European Commission.

The BRIDGE Health project aims to prepare the transition towards a sustainable and integrated EU health information system for both public health and research purposes. The project bridges the best of EU projects in domains of population and health system monitoring, indicator development, health examination surveys, environment and health, population injury and disease registries, clinical and administrative health data collection systems and methods of health systems monitoring and evaluation.
