InSite is a platform to enable the trustworthy re-use of Electronic Health Records (EHR) data for clinical research. The collaboration between clinicians and researchers is facilitated, aiming to maximise the output of clinical research through new technology. 
InSite offers an integrated view of heterogeneous clinical data sources through easy to use applications.
In participating hospitals, InSite connects the hospital data sources to a local InSite Node, which connects to the central InSite platform. This Node integrates data, provides support to the platform operations and serves several applications for local use within the hospital (Patient Centered Clinical Intelligence).
The InSite platform adheres to the “privacy and security by design and default” principle. The distributed analytics technology ensures that patient data never leaves the protected environment of a hospital and remains at all times under local control, while still providing meaningful answers to research questions. The InSite platform has been certified by an independent organisation that ensures compliance to the highest data protection standard.
Researchers can use the InSite services for trial design, study placement, recruitment tracking, etc.
Clinicians can use InSite within their hospital to support their trials or deep dive into their data.
The InSite platform is supported by eight major pharma companies. The Biomedical Informatics Group of the UPM is a research partner of InSite, mainly focused on solutions for data model and terminology integration with clinical information systems.
