Grant of two million for self-learning model to predict risk of coronary heart disease based on big data

Researchers from Maastricht University and Maastricht UMC+ are receiving a grant of nearly two million euros from NWO for the development of a self-learning eHealth application that aims to prevent coronary heart disease. The digital application uses massive amounts of data from hospitals, general practitioners and the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS), among others. Based on that ‘big data’, a personal risk profile can be formulated and starting points for intervention can be looked at.
