The HARMONY Alliance will be part of the Follow-up day: “Big data for clinicians”, which is organized at 9 July in the afternoon. The EHA2021 congress platform is accessible until 15 August. EHA is a HARMONY Partner. Read more about EHA2021 >
In hematology, we have been using Big Data to develop precision diagnostics and precision medicine approaches in blood cancer treatment for a long time already. We have been using genetic diagnostics to stratify patients in order to select the right treatment for the right patient. In addition, Hematologic Malignancies were among the first diseases where targeted therapies were implemented. One of the driving forces behind precision medicine in hematology is the HARMONY Alliance: a Public-Private Partnership for Big Data in Hematology. Funded by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) of the EU, HARMONY unites more than 100 European organizations, varying from medical associations and hospitals, to research institutes, patient organizations, pharmaceutical companies, and more.
How to participate in the live session of 9 July?
The HARMONY Alliance is an EHA2021 conference partner. HARMONY experts demonstrate the potential of big data to improve the treatment of hematologic malignancies in varous conference program features.Since the HARMONY launch in 2017, EHA invited HARMONY to participate in the EHA annual congresses.

#bigdataforbloodcancer: Big Data analytics will accelerate better and faster treatment
The HARMONY Alliance is a European Public–Private Partnership for Big Data in Hematology that is capturing and mining Big Data on various Hematologic Malignancies/blood cancers. The HARMONY Alliance unites more than 100 organizations such as European medical associations, hospitals, research institutes, patient organizations, pharmaceutical and IT companies.
HARMONY uses Big Data analytics to accelerate the development of more effective treatments for blood cancer patients. Data are stored in HARMONY’s Big Data Platform, which has already identified over 70,000 anonymized patient records, making it one of the largest databases of its kind. Leading research teams are currently using this wealth of information to answer critical questions about hematologic malignancies that cannot be addressed with other methods.
