The SmartBIMS project promotes the development of new products and services to improve the interoperability, exploitation and integration of the information handled by Biobanks.
The project’s main objectives are, on the one hand, to achieve more efficient and profitable Biobanks, and on the other, to position them as a key element in research within personalised medicine.
Within the scope of the project, an automation tool will be developed to encode medical texts in SNOMED-CT, an interface (API) to facilitate the management and exchange of Biobank data, and mobile applications to allow the collection and visualisation of standardised data. All of them will be integrated into a commercial platform called SmartBIMS that will respond to the current needs of the technology market.
SMARTBIMS is a collaborative project started on October 1, 2020 in which participate the Spanish companies NorayBio and Ibermática, and the Swedish VizzDAT company and Karolinska Institutet. The project counts with the co-financing of the CDTI for the Spanish partners, the co-financing of VINNOVA for the Swedish partners, and the European Union contribution to the Eurostars-2 joint program, co-financed by the European Union Research and Innovation Framework Program, Horizon 2020.
