PARENT (PAtient REgistries iNiTiative)

     A Joint Action co-funded by the European Commission and some Member States (May 2012-May2015)

The overall objective of PARENT JA is to support the EU Member States in developing comparable and interoperable patient registries in clinical fields of identified importance (e.g. chronic diseases, medical technology). Its aim is to rationalize the development and governance of interoperable patient registries, thus enabling the use of secondary data for public health and research purposes in cross-organizational and cross-border setting.
