The BIOLYTICA platform, which is the product of the AEGLE H2020 project, offers a scalable solution for analysing big healthcare data, which includes the ability for users to pseudo-anonymize data conforming to EU regulations and the security measures, ensuring data analysis and storage on a secure cloud platform accessible only to users with the necessary access requirements. The platform can be offered with two user interfaces (UI). A research-oriented UI (R&D-UI) and a clinical decision support UI (CDS-UI). Both can be customized to the user’s needs. The platform has been developed for three scenarios, namely analysing next generation sequencing (NGS) and immunogenetics data, analysing monitoring data for Intensive Care Units (ICU) and analysing electronic health records (EHR) data for non-malignant chronic diseases such as diabetes, but has the potential of supporting any other Healthcare domain.
