Medical success today more than ever is based on a powerful and expandable IT infrastructure. With the NCT DataThereHouse, the NCT has developed a scientific novel database that allows data from various sources to be pooled and analyzed. This speeds up the overall work at the NCT, i.e. to translate state-of-the-art scientific evidence specifically into diagnostics, therapy, prevention of cancer and clinical studies.
The DataThereHouse is a Memory Database for clinical and scientific use. Even complex queries are carried out at high speed.
It requests data from four source systems:
- IS-H med, which is the clinical information system of the Heidelberg University Hospital with the treatment data of all cancer patients from the University Hospital
- the NCT’s clinical cancer registry with approx. 180,000 datasets
- Ulice, a database that documents radiological therapies in great detail as well as
- the NCT Biobank, recording availability of biological and medical samples
