Managing information and handling of very large and dynamic datasets is at the core of providing a cost-effective and high-quality healthcare system. Poor information management is widely seen as one of the main bottlenecks in improving healthcare. Major challenges are the (semantic) interoperability between systems, intelligent support for medical decision making, bridging the gap from medical research to clinical care and providing transparent quality indicators.
