The Government of Catalonia is committed to the opening of public data, with the aim of making data transparent in the eyes of the general public, as well as promoting the use and reuse of the information produced by the administration. The data are pooled in a common portal as required by the standards promoted by the international body W3C (World Wide Web Consortium). The Gencat open data project thereby conforms with the international Open Data trends and is governed by the privacy, safety and property limitations in each case, in accordance with the Governmental agreement of November 2010.
The Catalan Ministry of Health is working to ensure that many of the data gathered from the Observatory, and other data of interest to the health sector, follow the opening process in coordination with the Gencat portal, where you can now consult all the archives available related to health issues. The released archives also allow the use of visualization and monitoring tools, for example ‘DiagnostiCat’, a Catalan Health Institute portal that displays in almost real time the diagnosis data for diseases being produced in the vast majority of primary healthcare centres in Catalonia.
