The digital health landscape of medical research and clinical care is rapidly evolving and seeing a growing demand for collecting and integrating data from diverse sources and modalities to drive meaningful translational insights. Effective management of these data requires access to data platforms that are secure, reliable, scalable, and extendible. In this talk we describe the capabilities and technologies underlying modern health data platforms and discuss sustainable models for governing, developing and operating these platforms, with a focus on the Charité/BIH Virtual Research Environment.
