The purpose of danishhealthdata.com

The purpose of danishhealthdata.com is to reduce the administration connected to identification and application for access to Danish health data.

The Danish health data is of high quality and contains a great potential, however, the application procedure is very resource-intensive. Long handling of cases is one of the challenges since data is owned and administered by different data owners and health operators, whose application procedures are not streamlined.

This website creates an overview of where the Danish health data can be found, and which variables they contain as well as an overview of the application procedure. The purpose of this website is to decrease the administration connected to the identification and application of Danish health data by increasing the visibility and accessibility of public health data for both businesses, health operators and researchers.

The data that can be found on danishhealthdata.com

This website gives a gathered overview of databases and registries containing Danish health data and descriptions of the application processes.

This site does not give access to health data, it only helps to create an overview of the content across the Danish health databases.

It is possible to search for specific disease areas or on concrete content of the databases, i.e. the specific variables that each database embraces. This allows researchers, business and others to get an overview of data that are already collected and to gain knowledge on how to apply for access.
