We will realise and improve data infrastructure, connecting data on patient cardiovascular health history.

Draft: Data infrastructure

The DCVA aims to strengthen cardiovascular research by increasing accessibility and reusability of existing and new data. We facilitate a national research infrastructure for cardiovascular science, allowing scientists to fully focus on excellent research to improve patient care.

The DCVA Guide on Infrastructure can help you find the right services for composing your research proposal and executing your project. These services are offered by the DCVA and/or Health RI.

The DCVA Data Portal can help you to find already collected cardiovascular data and biosamples, available for reuse. Based on your search it is possible to submit a request for (re-)use of samples, image and data.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean.

Sustainable (re)use of data

We will collect and use data from individuals to accelerate and improve health research.

All our data sources

Registry-based research

We will create a national registration for clinical studies in cooperation with the Dutch Heart Registration (NHR).

Apply for registration

Community of cardiovascular patients

We will connect patients to our platform and make them available for research.

Join the community

Availability of (human) tissue for research

We will facilitates the development of a biobank where tissues are stored that will be available for cardiovascular researchers.

Example projects

Self-learning model to predict risk of coronary heart disease

Researchers at Maastricht UMC+ will develop a self-learning eHealth app to prevent coronary heart disease. The digital tool will use vast amounts of data, for example from hospitals, general practitioners and Statistics Netherlands (CBS), to compile a personal risk profile and seek out potential interventions.
