Tasks of Central Data Management

Building and developing a digital infrastructure
The goal is to fill the central datawarehouse sustainably with patient information from all participating study registers, thereby ensuring interoperability with other systems. The original data are copied, standardized and pseudonymized transfered to our central database. For this, different software solutions, e.g. for data import including pseudonymization, ontology development, requesting samples and the user interface of the datawarehouse.

Semantic Integration / Metadata Management

Combining the data from different lung centers requires a common ontology that contains the essential information such as phenotypes, measured data and sample data in structured form. This includes various annotations such as clear definitions and references to corresponding elements of other classifications such as LOINC or SNOMED-CT. DZL Data Management develops these with the help of the expertise of all sites.

Support for data integration

The software solution for data import developed by the central data management is always executed by the local data managers for reasons of data privacy and data protection. As local data manager, you receive support from us during the configuration and correct execution of the provided data integration software.

Operation of the Datawarehouse

In order to ensure functionality and security, the software used is subject to regular updates. Access to the data warehouse is reserved for (associate) employees of the DZL. If you would like access data for yourself or one of your employees, please let us know by e-mail.
