The existence of health registers at the national level allows for a systematic and continuous control of the state of healthcare, the digitalisation of certain services and the overall improvement of the state of care. The data collected in such registers are then analysed and visualised. Thanks to this, it is possible to effectively evaluate vari...

Project
During the project, best-practice methodology for achieving comparability of higher education quality across Europe will be proposed including exemplar case study illustrating the conceptual way how these standards can be effectively integrated into the practise. This pilot implementation will represent a proven illustration of the conceptual way how the MedBiquitous standards can be effectively integrated into the practice. The guaranteed and high-quality curriculum in medical education is still essential, because medicine does not allow any gaps in the knowledge obtained during studies and any error in medical practice may lead to fatal consequences. From the perspective of human cognition abilities, it is not possible to carefully read and verify whole curriculum (content of all learning units with all their linkages and co-dependencies). The use of proper data mining techniques and analytical methods can in-depth explore all sections of a curriculum. This is the reason why MEDCIN proposes an innovative methodological background including web-based visualization tool for comprehensive evaluation and map of medical curricula with the use of modern information and communication technologies. We aim to identify and validate novel, potentially useful patterns, which will significantly help curriculum managers/evaluators to make right decisions, and afterwards build a well-balanced medical curriculum. MEDCIN will not only eliminate poor transparencies in curricula, but will also help to improve teaching as such.
