Tallinn University of Technology (Estonia)

Tallinn University of Technology (TUT) supports Estonia’s sustainable development through scientific creation and science-based higher education in the field of engineering, technology, natural, medical and social sciences. Technomedicum (TM) of TUT is a research, educational and development institution established with a main focus on clinical and biomedicine as well as health care technologies (eHealth) to best European standards.

In 2006 the Institute of Clinical Medicine (ICM) was created as one structural arm of TM to concentrate on two major research programs: researching pathogenesis of health behaviour associated diseases, especially cigarette smoking-associated disorders, and evaluation of tools and processes that impact eHealth applications with the health care sector in Estonia and elsewhere. ICM has tight collaboration with industry, hospitals, start-ups and competence centres with examples of latest research projects like developing eHealth technology specialist joint curricula; biomedical data integration and mining; developing eapplications
competence support for clinical settings. The group research potential was completed with especially anticipated expertise of modern health care information and communication technology, e.g. electronic patients record (EPR), hospital information systems (HIS) development and analyzing with especial accent to data quality and utilization.

ICM is also a research and academic education centre for eHealth and telemonitoring applications. New areas of investigation are clinical and economic benefits of large-scale health information exchange platforms (HIE), inter alia Estonian nation-wide HIE functional since 2008. One of the special research interests is citizens´ on-line access to own medical data and its influence to the health data management. Estonian HIE is a globally
unique eHealth solution as it encompasses the whole country, registers virtually all residents’ medical history from birth to death, and is based on the comprehensive state-developed basic ICT infrastructure. Analyzing, evaluating and utilizing shared digital health data and approaches in the Estonian nation-wide health database have lead to new health care services creation. TUT has assisted introducing several electronic applications in large Estonian hospitals.
