Ospedale San Raffaele (OSR) is one of the leading private scientific research institutes in Italy, recognized by the Italian Ministry of Health as a Research Hospital (IRCCS). It comprises both clinical and research activities, conducted by a highly specialized and qualified hospital with 1,357 beds and a research institute with around 1,600 basic, clinical and translational scientists. OSR integrates its research with the education and training activities conducted within the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University which comprises the faculties of medicine, psychology and philosophy and provides specialized post graduate courses, residency programs in various medical specialties, and international PhD programs. The San Raffaele Hospital (OSR) together with Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele (USR) and Fondazione Centro San Raffaele (FCSR) are part of the San Raffaele Scientific Institute (SRSI), which hosts all teaching, basic, translational and clinical research activities in a large infrastructural compound.

Role in the Ditas Project

OSR will be interested in designing and testing data-intensive applications based on the analysis of clinical data, which also include images. The goal of these applications is to export, when possible, and respecting all the norms and policies to protect sensitive data, these data to actors that lives outside the hospital that could be interested in those data (e.g. researchers). This will give the opportunity to increase the value of data that nowadays can be considered exhausted. Exploiting the DITAS framework, the maintenance of these data-intensive applications will be mostly focused on the update of the policies and norms that will automatically re-configure the data management limiting the intervention of the developers.
