The Research Health Data Gateway
is established from a joint collaboration between The Ministry of the Interior and Health of Denmark and Danish Regions. In March 2019 the National Board of Health and Elderly approved the initiative. The project is established as a joint public project with the joint public steering group, and regional project management.

The ambition is to make it easier, more efficient and user-friendly for clinicians, researchers and companies, in the private and public sector, who uses health data, to get an overview and access to the healthcare system’s multiple data sources. 

The Research Health Data Gateway consists of three initiatives:

  • A Guidance Function
  • A Metadata Map
  • An Application
