Collaboratively implementing the mandate of the Swiss Personalized Health Network
Both the Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences (SAMS) and the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics are responsible for the implementation of the mandate.
The SPHN Management Office (MO) together with the SIB Personalized Health Informatics Group (PHI) coordinate the funding and drive the development of coordinated infrastructures, compatible data management systems, interoperability of data and governance of guidelines.
In parallel, the PHI group sets up the BioMedIT network, a national IT infrastructure backbone, to enable nationwide health-data exchange for research. BioMedIT provides researchers all over Switzerland with access to a secure and protected computing environment for analysis of sensitive data without compromising data privacy. Nationally, scalably and sustainably.
