The UMC’s, represented by the NFU, make PSI possible. The Pearls take the lead in this partnership. Within the Pearls and the UMC’s an infrastructure is established that leads to scientific research and medical innovation which benefits health care. The vision and mission statements of PSI express this further:
Innovation and improvement in medicine can only be achieved through the integration of health care and science.
The PSI mission is to maintain and expand the integration of health care and scientific research in each UMC with the highest quality possible through standardisation and harmonisation of the health care process and the collection of data, images and human biomaterial that is and remains available for scientific research.
