Information Management Unit (UGI)

The Information Management Unit (UGI) provides support to the clinical departments and management of the Institut Bordet.

The UGI carries out 4 particular missions:

  • An epidemiology mission – by developing, managing and operating the hospital Cancer Register and by incorporating into it data from multidisciplinary oncological consultations. In so doing it contributes actively to the Belgian Cancer Register and makes the hospital Cancer Register available as a research support and care quality evaluation tool.
  • An analysis and reporting mission in relation to the Institut’s activities, in particular by developing and maintaining a data warehouse.
  • An oncological clinical research mission in terms of methodology and statistics (single-centre and multicentre research, centralised at the Institut Bordet and elsewhere).
  • A website maintenance mission for the Institut Bordet.

Research projects

The UGI collaborates on many research projects at the request of the Institut Bordet clinical departments and of multicentre groups. It also develops its own projects, including:

Project 1
