Medical Data Integration Center (MeDIC)

For the Faculty of Medicine of the University Münster, a Medical Data Integration Center (MeDIC) has been established. The MeDIC is embedded into the Institute of Medical Informatics. Main goal of the MeDIC is to implement an inter-facility research data infrastructure with many partners within the Medical Informatics Initiative of the BMBF (http://www.medizininformatik-initiative.de/en/start) that will be a hub between patient care and research. On this basis, the MeDIC provides researchers with solutions for data analysis and exchange, re-use of data, and data publication in clinical research according to the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable). The MeDIC complies with local and national data security and data protection regulations. Moreover, a quality management system has been implemented to monitor and improve all processes.
