An ever-increasing amount of data is at the disposal of decision- and policy-makers, which, if analysed, pooled and used, could lead to novel data-driven approaches in health care delivery and policy-making, thus improving quality of life, health equity and producing better health outcomes. The collection, access, processing, and (primary and secondary) use of data is still very fragmented across national health systems. The availability and use of structured and unstructured health data represents an opportunity for the implementation of data-driven innovation and it provides new opportunities for better decision-making processes and policy strategies


The aim of this topic is optimising and/or transforming health care delivery decision-making processes, supporting policy-making, and/or empowering citizens and cancer patients


– The development of data-driven solutions (i.e scenario-building tools and models) helping health care organisations take evidence-informed decisions on cancer care delivery processes
– The development of data-driven solutions empowering citizens and cancer patients interaction with the health care systems
– The development of digital toolkits and indicators to improve the reporting and assessment of outputs from end-user involvements
