Health data lake

In collaboration with the Autonomous Communities, a data repository will be created to collect the information from the different existing information systems and allow massive data processing and analysis. Thanks to this, a real-time response capability will be achieved for the identification and improvement of diagnosis and treatment, identification of risk factors, trend analysis, identification of patterns, prediction of health risk situations and programming of resources for their attention.

This repository is known as a healthcare Data Lake. The collection of patient healthcare data will be carried out using artificial intelligence algorithms, new scalable system architectures and new processing and model discovery tools. The Secretary of State for Digitalization and Artificial Intelligence is responsible for the project and will be carried out in collaboration with the Ministry of Health.

The investments for the implementation of the healthcare Data Lake will be as follows:

  • Acquisition of the necessary technological infrastructure by the Autonomous Communities.
  • Implementation of systems, platforms, and technological processes necessary for the incorporation and exploitation of the information in each of the participating Health Departments.
  • Incorporation of Autonomous Communities into the Health Data Lake.
  • Definition and implementation of massive data processing projects by the Autonomous Communities, trying to prioritize the search for collaboration and synergies between private sector organizations and research centers.


Provide mass analysis with real-time responsiveness for identification and improvement of diagnosis and treatment.
Identify risk factors, trend analysis, pattern identification, prediction of health risk situations.
Schedule resources for patient care.
