Second Joint Personalized Health Day Switzerland

The future of data-driven medicine in Switzerland

Wednesday, 24 August 2022,  Casino Bern

The second Joint Personalized Health Day, co-organized by SPHN and the ETH Strategic Focus Area «Personalized Health and Related Technologies» (PHRT), brought together the research communities from basic, clinical and data science and fostered interdisciplinary exchange and collaboration across disciplines, networks, and institutions.

The morning program focused on the envisioned landscape for data-driven personalized health research in Switzerland as well as on the networks, infrastructures and services already developed for researchers. The afternoon program offered participants the opportunity for discussions and exchanges. The recently launched National Data Streams were the focus of dedicated break-out sessions and served as a basis for discussions about the future of a health data ecosystem beyond the funding periods of SPHN and PHRT (2024+).
