Theme Research meeting with Board of Directors
Target audience Researchers of Amsterdam UMC


The Board of Directors of Amsterdam UMC invites researchers for the research meeting on 27 September on How to get your research data in an easy way by making use of the Research Data Platform (RDP). Bas de Bree will present an overview of what the RDP entails, followed by examples of the department of Intensive Care and the department of Neurology on how they made use of the RDP.


16:00 – 16:15 Research Data Platform: How to get your research data in an easy way?

Speaker: Drs. Bas de Bree MSc, projectleider & scrum master Business Intelligence Amsterdam UMC

Overview of the research dataplatform, what data it includes and what the procedures are to get to the data. The main purpose of the Research Dataplatform (RDP) is helping researchers to gather data. The RDP contains data from the electronic medical record (Epic), laboratory systems, biobank, and more. Data not yet in the RDP can be added to the RDP at your request. Once you have clearly specified your patient group, the research dataplatform will deliver you the data within a few weeks. Gathering data via the RDP is very efficient and gives you high quality data.

16:15 – 16:30 Use case department of Intensive Care: What have they set up for their research applications, and how do they use the RDP data?

Speaker: Dr. Dagmar Ouweneel, clinical data specialist, department of intensive care and laboratory for critical care computational intelligence

The department of intensive care medicine uses data from the Research Data Platform to answer management questions, research questions and to perform evaluation of clinical care. This presentation will show some examples of data available in the Research Data Platform and how this is used in daily practice. We will show some examples of data questions for which data is used and we will discuss advantages and pitfalls of using data from the Research Data Platform.

16:30 – 16:45 Use case department of neurology - MS center Amsterdam: Multiple use of digital data; example of how data of the MS care path is used for scientific research through the services of the RDP

Speaker: Dr. Eva Strijbis, neurologist MS Center Amsterdam

In the last 3 years we fully digitalized our clinical MS care path within the EPIC environment. Through the RDP, it is possible to use this data. Digitally sent questionnaires, laboratory, imaging data, and more logistic data such as appointments, hospital admissions and medication administration is collected in the MS center database and used for analysis on all sorts of health related outcomes. We additionally use it for the identification of specific patient populations for more fundamental research. In this presentation I will give some examples on specific research questions and how the RDP enables us to move quickly in the rapidly evolving field of (MS) research.
