Institute of Outcomes Research

Research at the Institute of Outcomes Research

The Institute of Outcomes Research at the Medical University of Vienna is a key player in several international research and development projects funded by the Innovative Medicines/Health Initiative (IMI/IHI), the European Union, the Vienna Science and Technology Fund (WWTF), the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), The Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG), the European Alliance of Associations for Rheumatology (EULAR), and the Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) Joint Programme, among others.

Selected projects:

  • We are currently coordinating the Health Outcomes Observatory (H2O) project, a public-private partnership funded by the Innovative Medicines Initiative.
  • IDERHA – Integration of heterogeneous Data and Evidence towards Regulatory and HTA Acceptance
  • BETTER – Being Equipped to Tackle Epidemics Right
  • COTIDIANA – Mobile patient-centered system to improve drug trials and care of older adults with rheumatic diseases
  • RheumaBuddy – The development of a digital health tool to improve the care and quality of life of patients with rheumatoid arthritis

All our projects aim to simplify health data collection and make it usable for patients and other stakeholders while ensuring privacy and ethical principles. We examine what matters to patients and how best to capture this information. In this way, we support patients to understand their own diseases and health conditions better, to communicate their needs more clearly, and to actively participate in their care.
