The University Diploma in Artificial Intelligence in Health

The digital revolution is multiplying the capacity for analysis and exploitation of data available to healthcare establishments.

For the past few years, it has resulted in the creation of health data warehouses (EDS) capable of securely and anonymously collecting the data produced during the care of patients for care and research.

Given the strategic importance and the challenges for the patient, the Lille University Hospital installed its own EDS with the ambition of allowing access to quality data in order to answer research questions in an optimized manner.

The data deposited in this EDS is used for several purposes such as research, improvement of the quality of care and medical-economic analysis. Ultimately, the EDS will constitute a data source made available to the regional ecosystem and experts in the field of artificial intelligence.

In addition, the creation of an EDS constitutes a founding milestone in the commitment of the Lille University Hospital for the creation of the 21st century university hospital connected with its patients as well as health professionals in the city or other establishments. health.

This is for the Lille University Hospital, in partnership with the University of Lille and INRIA, to position Lille as a French center of excellence for the exploitation of big data in health.
