The potential of Danish Health Data

The Danish health data is of high quality and holds a great potential for use in research and development. A better use of these health data can help ease the transition between sectors and optimize the treatment of the individual patient. However, today it is difficult to get an overview of what kind of health data exists, what data is available and who to contact for access. If we want to reap the value of these data, they need to become both more visible and far more accessible.
