Sciensano & Health Information System

Last updated on 4-10-2022 by Cassandre Dugailliez

Health information is part of Sciensano’s core business: we are a major contributor to the health information system in Belgium. Sciensano assumes different roles in the Belgian health information system both at the population level and at the health care level. Sciensano collects data through specific procedures, uses existing data, enhances data by linking it to other relevant data, and translates data into key recommendations to policy makers in order to reinforce the evidence base of Belgium’s health policies and interventions. Therefore, we also collaborate with different actors in Belgium that manage health information. Furthermore, Sciensano represents Belgium at various international health information meetings and commits to health information research projects at EU level.
