Project Description

ERDDS

European Radiological Digital Data System

erdds

The ERDDS project aimed at collecting and reusing digital information available from the Radiology Department throughout the EU, in order to define a referral European Radiological Classification system, in both medical and administrative domain, and to set up a European radiological digital data integration framework.

THE PROJECT

The ERDDS project aimed at collecting and reusing digital information available from the Radiology Department throughout the EU, in order to define a referral European Radiological Classification system, in both medical and administrative domain, and to set up a European radiological digital data integration framework.

Medical imaging did not experience, so far, a real breakthrough, mostly due to the lack of commonly accepted European radiology classification and taxonomy systems. ERDDS addressed this relevant limiting factor by:

  • Making available, disseminating and supporting exhaustive information in the radiological sector, through its portal, with a simple and easy-to-use interface.
  • Defining a unified European radiology framework, based on a glossary and the classification of Medical Imaging services.
  • Facilitating the creation and the growth of a European teleradiology sector.
  • Supporting both integration and re-use of public sector medical knowledge.

The ERDDS project objectives were to exploit the available digital contents on the Radiology Department throughout the EU, to define a European Radiological Classification to be taken as a reference in both medical and administrative domain, and to set up a European radiological digital data integration framework.

These efforts were mainly meant to:

  • Support integration and re-use of public sector medical knowledge, in order to facilitate the development of pan-European radiological digital data collections for professionals, policy makers and citizens.
  • Make available, disseminate and support information and data for benchmarking, evaluation and standardization of radiology workflow and performances, including fares comparison among different EU healthcare systems
  • Define a unfired European radiology framework, based on a glossary and a classification of Medical Imaging services, with a standardized, multilingual and integrated approach to support the RIS (Radiological Information System) , and HIS (Hospital Information System)
  • Facilitate the creation and the growth of a European teleradiology sector, enabling contacts and providing services to public institutions and citizens, among different European Countries.
  • Create a European data collection of public sector medical data information including benchmarking, evaluation and standardization of radiology workflow and performances.
