Kassaye Yitbarek Yigzaw, a senior researcher at the Norwegian Centre for E-health Research (NSE), presented the ASCLEPIOS demonstrator for antibiotic prescriptions feedback and monitoring, led by NSE, at two short seminars organized for two leading e-health system vendors in Scandinavia, DIPS AS and Cambio health, in September and November 2020 respectively.
The presentation covered the challenges of health data reuse in general as well as those related to the ASCLEPIOS demonstrator. Then the participants were introduced to the technique used in ASCLEPIOS for privacy-preserving statistical computations using data distributed across multiple healthcare institutions. The clinicians provided their views on the importance of the demonstrator, and their feedback was discussed during the seminar.
