By using the Portavita Integrated Care System, a large amount of structured and unstructured data can be gathered about a patient, such as documents, laboratory values, genetic, social and sensor data. Analysis of this data can be used for several purposes, including support for care coordination, scientific research, Personal Health Records, financial processes, and to acquire insights on patient level, practice level and regional level.

To facilitate access to this valuable data, Portavita’s sister company MGRID has developed a healthcare data platform.

By unlocking the data that is stored in all kinds of sources, the MGRID clinical data platform makes this data available for use in business intelligence applications, translational medicine and data mining projects.

The MGRID clinical data platform is scalable and secure, and the only data store that is truly aware of the semantics of medical information.


The Portavita Care Management Modules all have reporting functionality. Apart from offering numerous predefined reports, we also offer the possibility to interactively query medical data by making use of Portavita Explorer.

Portavita Explorer, developed by Portavita’s sister company MGRID, is a data browsing tool that enables you to retrieve data from the system. With a simple, easy-to-use menu, you can decide on your selection criteria and columns, and apply aggregations. You even have the possibility to show the output in a pivot table. This enables you to create quick and easy surveys of patients who meet a certain profile, for example all patients older than 75 years with a HBA1c > 50 who not have been seen in your practice for over a year.

You can also generate surveys on an aggregated level about the patient population of a general practice or in a whole region.

Analytics of Big Data in Healthcare will definitely make healthcare smarter.

However, it also places high demands on the data management tool. It is necessary to use a data-driven solution that translates source data into a standardised and normalised model.

Based on the MGRID healthcare data platform, all information that has been recorded can be analysed for various purposes. Management reporting and Analytics Tools like SAS, SPSS, and Orange can function through the use of this data warehouse.



Together with leading European universities and enterprises, Portavita also participates in the European research project AXLE.

AXLE focuses on automatic scaling of complex analytics, while addressing the full requirements of real data sets.

The predictive value resulting from the analysis of extremely large quantities of data will have a tremendous impact on improving the quality of healthcare as well as reducing its costs. By focusing on the illnesses of individual patients from collective information, it will also make a substantial contribution to the further development of the Individual Care Plan.


MGRID transforms healthcare data into healthcare BI.

To source the data MGRID provides datatransformation for FHIR, analytics pipelines that support real-time ingest and aggregates with scale-out. To analyse the aggregated data MGRID provides BI Explorer.

BI Explorer is a web-based Business Intelligence tool that provides medical professionals with a powerful set of tools to get quick insight into medical data. National quality reports or key performance indicators can be displayed in a dashboard, a report, or an interactive table. Drilling down to the underlying data and the use of filtering, grouping and pivot operations lead to new insights and better informed decision making.
