BIGAN is the Big Data project of the Department of Health of the Government of Aragon, created to improve healthcare using data that are routinely collected within the public health system of Aragon. Development of the project has been entrusted to the Aragon Institute of Health Sciences (IACS).
The purpose of the project is to integrate all data collected within the health system on a technological platform, where it can be analysed by healthcare professionals, managers, educators, and researchers. The ultimate goal is to improve the healthcare system and the health of residents in Aragon through data observation. To achieve this, collection, analysis, and sharing of information between all involved stakeholders is vital.
