External Advisory Board

The External Advisory Board (EAB) ensures alignment of the HiGHmed concept with international activities and compliance with international standards. The EAB consists of highly reputed international experts in the field of medical informatics, who will be supported by representatives from patient organizations (German Heart Foundation, the Heidelberger self-help organization and patient advocats) to receive feedback about patient participation in research and the quality of service the patients have received. Therefore, the board will also provide a basis to monitor the progress of HiGHmed’s core principle “patients first”.
