History

Since its formation, the BIG Health Consortium™ has focused on the following activities:

  • Convened representatives of all the stakeholder communities to organize action groups that conceptualize, develop, and implement model projects.
  • Identified a staged portfolio of potential projects that can be used to model new, integrated approaches in discovery and clinical research and clinical care.
  • Promulgated the rapid-learning health system through social networking, conferences, publications, etc.
  • Applied the infrastructure of caBIG® to Consortium projects to link individuals, organizations, and data, thereby leveraging the investment made in the world’s largest biomedical network.
