Clinical data for paediatric research: the Swiss approach

The project “Harmonising the collection of health-related data and biospecimens in paediatric hospitals throughout Switzerland (SwissPedData)” is an infrastructure development project funded by SPHN, which aims to identify and describe available data on child health in Switzerland and to agree on a standardised core dataset for electronic health records across all paediatric teaching hospitals. This article describes the results of a two-day symposium that aimed to summarise what had been achieved in the SwissPedData project, to put it in an international context, and to discuss the next steps for a sustainable future.
