Instituto de Salud Carlos III

The Institute of Health Carlos III (ISCIII) of Spain is a national and international reference in biomedical research and public health. It is the Public Research Organization (OPI) of the Government responsible for funding and executing national biomedical research. It depends on the Ministry of Science and Innovation although it is also linked to the Ministry of Health. ISCIII was created in 1986 with the General Health Law and, in addition to promoting and coordinating biomedical research, it offers scientific and health technical services to the National Health System (SNS), and has training programs in public health, health management and scientific management. ISCIII participates in several activities of EUCAIM, including Long-term sustainability, governance model and semantic interoperability of clinical data and images.

Telemedicine and e-Health Research Unit (UITeS)

The UITeS of the ISCIII (Instituto de Salud Carlos III) has been carrying out valuable research for more than twenty years in the fields of Telemedicine (sensors monitoring, outdoor healthcare), EHR (Electronic Health Record) systems international standards (ISO/EN 13606, openEHR) on interoperability, Radiofrequency electromagnetic fields and medical Machine Learning and knowledge acquisition.
