Agile Systems Development (ASD)
The Institute supports the University Hospital in its tasks via innovative method and tool development. For example, research on data is simplified or even made possible in the first place by developing and then operating a research data platform. This platform enables UKE-internal researchers to work on internal data in a protected environment, eliminating the need for a separate data protection impact assessment. Additonally, a metadata repository for internal researchers and cooperation partners is being put into place, which helps make data semantically accessible and merge different ontologies or even just classifications. It also enables the identification of the right data-holding cooperation partner without the partner releasing data first - and as metadata is data that describes data, it is subject to significantly lower protection measures.
