Based on a Briefing for the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, DEXHELPP is also mentioned in the article "DEXHELPP CONNECTING THE DOTS: PUTTING BIG DATA TO WORK FOR HEALTH SYSTEMS" in EUROHEALTH. The article discusses the challenges of linking existing databases: Effective use of big data to transform health care systems has a huge potential, but it requires substantial commitment from all stakeholders and a strong governance framework. And data privacy concerns pose a challenge to the integration of data sources.
